Yesterday Modi addressed his maiden speech on All India Radio's “Mann ki Baat”. He spoke for 15 minutes in which he referred to some citizens who had communicated to him through the web portal. One of them, Ganesh Venkatidiri, is an engineer based in Mumbai. PM Modi referring to the festival of Vijayadashmi said that Mr Venaktidiri had sent him an email on "eliminating the ills within us.”
When contacted by the media, Ganesh said that he was absolutely thrilled by this. "It hasn't really sunk in but when PM mentioned my name during his address on AIR, I was surprised and felt extremely happy," said Ganesh.
"I can now believe responses are being received, I will ask others too to communicate suggestions to the PM,” he added.
PM Modi has pledged that he would communicate with the people through the medium of radio more often. He has asked people to share their thoughts with him. He also hopes for rural participation. Modi will address people on Sundays at 11 am.
