Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the 91st edition of his monthly radio program “Mann Ki Baat” on Sunday at 11 a.m.
“I invite you all to tune in to this month’s #MannKiBaat tomorrow, July 31 at 11 a.m. Also sharing a booklet covering interesting topics from the past month such as India’s progress in space, glory on the sports field, Rath Yatra and more,” PM Modi tweeted on Saturday.
Earlier this month, the Prime Minister invited people to share their ideas and suggestions for the episode which will take place today.
People could share their ideas on MyGov and Namo App, or could also record their posts by dialing 1800-11-7800.
“Do you have any contributions for this month’s #MannKiBaat, which takes place on the 31st? Can’t wait to hear them…share them on MyGov or the NaMo app. Record your message by dialing 1800-11-7800,” PM Modi had tweeted.
In the 90th edition of his monthly ‘Mann ki Baat’, the Prime Minister recalled the dark chapter in India’s history – the state of emergency, which was imposed in 1975 and said it was our democratic mindset that had finally prevailed.
He also applauded all those who resisted this period and said that even after the emergency people did not lose faith in democracy.
The Prime Minister further stated that during the state of emergency, citizens have been deprived of all their rights, including the right to life and personal liberty which is granted by Article 21 of the Constitution.
Prime Minister Modi said that the country’s courts, all constitutional institutions, the press, everything was under control and the censorship was so strict that nothing could be published without approval.
