Mann Ki Baat, the monthly radio address by Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to mark its return on Sunday (June 30). The radio programme was temporarily suspended by PM Modi just ahead of Lok Sabha election 2019. On Saturday, PM Modi urged everyone to tune into the radio address.

"After four long months, #MannKiBaat is back to do what it has always loved- celebrate the power of positivity and the strengths of 130 crore Indians! Do tune in at 11 AM tomorrow morning!" he said in his tweet.

PM Narendra Modi had temporarily suspended Mann Ki Baat, days before announcement of Lok Sabha Election 2019. At the time, he had expressed confidence that he will return to power once again and address the nation in days after the elections.
