Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address his monthly radio show Mann ki Baat on Sunday. The show will be broadcast at 11 AM. This will be the 43rd edition of the Mann Ki Baat programme.
The prime minister who returned from China on Saturday evening, tweeted the details of the upcoming edition.
In the last edition, PM Modi lamented that many people mocked Bhimrao Ambedkar and made efforts to ensure that the son of a backward family does not progress but noted that today's 'new India' is altogether different as it belongs to the poor and the backward.
During the previous 'Mann ki Baat' radio address, the prime minister also hailed the role of leader such as Mahatma Gandhi, Lal Bahadur Shastri, Ram Manohar Lohia, Charan Singh and Devi Lal for recognising agriculture and the farmer as vital aspects of the nation's economy.
Referring to the agriculture sector, the PM said, from Mahatma Gandhi to Lal Bahadur Shastri, Ram Manohar Lohia, Charan Singh, and Devi Lal --all recognised agriculture and the farmer as vital aspects of the nation's economy and also for the common man's life.
He recalled Mahatma Gandhi's words that to forget how to dig earth and to tend the soil, is to forget ourselves."
He said, Shastri insisted improvised agricultural infrastructure, while Lohia talked of creating a mass awakening about necessary measures to ensure a better income for farmers.
He recalled that Charan Singh in his speech in 1979 had urged farmers to use new technology and to adopt new innovations and underlined their vital significance.
The show airs simultaneously at All India Radio, Doordarshan and the Narendra Modi mobile application. You can watch PM Modi's show Mann ki Baat live at India TV News.
