Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan will on Tuesday speak to the public through a special radio show ‘Shiv Samvad’ to mark the 11 years of his government in the state.
Inspired from the response to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 'Mann Ki Baat', MP CM Chouhan will share his ideas with public through a radio chat show.
"It is a unique idea, which could generate good response and the chief minister is willing to share his views directly with people," said principal secretary to chief minister SK Mishra.
'Shiv Samvad' will be a half-an-hour address by the chief minister who looks forward to sharing his thoughts on a number of themes and issues involving public interest, he said.
"I wish to share my views with the public and hope to get a good response. We are planning to start the radio programme by the November-end, but November 1, when Madhya Pradesh observes its foundation day, is also a suitable date," Chouhan told media earlier.
In Madhya Pradesh, more than 95% of population has an access to radio, be it through government-run All-India Radio (AIR) or any private FM radio station. The private radio stations will be allowed to broadcast recording of chief minister's address as and when they choose it, officials said.
Later at 1pm on Tuesday, Madhya Pradesh CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan will answer people’s questions directly in a special exclusive programme on News Nation TV.
