New Delhi:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s monthly radio broadcast ‘Mann ki Baat’ completes 50 episodes on Sunday. The ‘Mann ki Baat’ programme is broadcast every month on the last Sunday on the All India Radio, the Doordarshan and the Narendra Modi (NaMo) app at 11 am.

Besides, the monthly radio programme is also streamed on the YouTube channels of the Prime Minister’s Office, Information and Broadcasting Ministry, AIR and DD News and is simultaneously broadcast on AIR’s website - www.allindiaradio.gov.in. AIR broadcasts the programme in regional languages immediately after the Hindi broadcast. The regional language versions are repeated at 8 pm.

In the 49th edition, the Prime Minister addressed the issue of stubble burning in Punjab. He said instead of burning it, it should be cultivated in the field itself. This will not only increase the soil strength but will also help prevent air pollution.

My dear countrymen, we shall meet once again in next episode after this 50th episode of #MannKiBaat : PM



Ji’s 550th Prakash Parv will be celebrated in a similar manner in all the countries of the world as well: PM



My dear countrymen, two days back on 23rd November, we all celebrated Shri Dev Jayanti and next year in 2019 we shall be celebrating his 550th Prakash Parv: PM



My dear countrymen, while talking about Constituent Assembly, contribution of Dr. cannot be forgotten who played pivotal role in Constituent Assembly: PM




In the year 2020, we shall complete 70 years as a Republic and in 2022, we shall enter 75th year of our Independence: PM



The unique point in our Constitution is that the rights and duties have been very comprehensively detailed. A balance between these two in the lives of our citizens will take our nation forward: PM

Tomorrow is Constitution Day. Our Constitution was adopted on 26th November, 1949. The Constituent Assembly took 2 years 11 months and 17 days to accomplish this stupendous task of drafting Constitution: PM




Communication will be more effective if we “accept” instead of “expect” and “discuss” instead of “dismiss”. My effort is to have continuous dialogue with youth in various programmes or through social media: PM



Today’s youths have this special quality that they won’t do anything which they do not believe themselves and whenever they believe in something, they follow that leaving everything else: PM

Many issues raised in Mann Ki Baat have been adopted by media. Cleanliness, Road safety, drugs free India, selfie with daughter taken up by the media and turn into campaigns : PM

Team from All India Radio prepares each episode for broadcast in a number of regional languages. Some of them very aptly narrate in a voice and style resembling that of Modi’s. In this way for those 30 minutes they become Narendra Modi: PM

I also thank my colleagues from All India Radio, FM Radio, Doordarshan, other TV Channels and the Social Media. It is due to their hard work that Mann Ki Baat reaches maximum number of people.: PM



carries my voice but examples, emotions and spirit represent my countrymen. There are lakhs of persons whose names I have not been able to include in Mann Ki Baat but without any disappointment, they continue to send in their letters and comments.



Mann Ki Baat is very simple task for me. Every time before , letters are received from people sharing their ideas and view points on and and people record messages in their own voice on toll free number – 1800117800.

Most people believe that greatest contribution of ‘’ has been enhancement of feeling of positivity in our society. Medium of ‘Mann Ki Baat’ has promoted many mass revolutions. has been subject of quite extensive discussion.

Biggest achievement of 50 episodes of is that one feels like talking to close acquaintance and not to Prime Minister, and this is true democracy.



Who would have imagined that small campaign “selfie with daughter” starting from small village in Haryana would spread not only throughout country but also across other countries as well:PM




Mann ki Baat is not a political talk, it is a talk of the society: PM







When commenced, I had firmly decided that it would carry nothing political, or any praise for Govt, nor Modi for that matter anywhere. Modi may come and go, but this country will never let go of its UNITY & permanence, our culture will always be immortal.

Some young friends attempted study over many episodes of ‘’. They did analysis of all episodes to calculate frequency of occurrence of particular words; whether words that were oft-repeated! One of their findings was that, this programme remained apolitical.

People are connecting with this programme and ensuring their participation through T.V., FM Radio, Mobile, Internet, Facebook Live; along with periscope, through too: PM

Recently, All India Radio got a survey done on ‘Mann Ki Baat’. I came across some feedback that is very interesting. 70% of respondents on average happen to be listeners who regularly tune in to ‘’Mann Ki Baat’.



When I became Prime Minister, it was natural for me to turn towards strong, effective medium. And in 2014, when I took charge as Pradhan Sevak, Principal Servant, it was my wish to reach out to masses with glorious saga of our country’s unity.

Many people want to know how did the idea of a programme like 'Mann Ki Baat' come. Today, I want to share it: PM

We began the 'Mann Ki Baat' journey on 3rd October 2014 and today we have the Golden Jubilee episode: PM
