Overseas Friends of BJP (OFBJP)Australia Chapter organised Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s radio programme “Mann Ki Baat” at 100 locations across the country which were attended by more than 1000 people from the Indian diaspora.
This special programme was organised on the occasion of the 100th episode of the radio program ‘Mann Ki Baat’. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, after being elected in 2014 for the first time, started the monthly radio program named “Mann Ki Baat”.
However, this programme was started as one-way communication through a monologue. But it evolved into a conversation, a dialogue, and went on to become a major medium of sharing positive stories from the lives of common people of India. PM Modi ji, often in “Mann ki Baat”, mention individuals, NGOs, and institutions that are working on various themes, from cleanliness to running community libraries to rural entrepreneurship or Yoga, inspiring people.
Jay Shah, President OFBJP Australia, said that the Indian diaspora is very excited about the special screening of the 100th episode of “Mann ki Baat” and many people approached them to conduct the programme at their locations. Shah further said that PM Modi’s “Mann Ki Baat” is not only popular among the masses in India. But also, with the Indians living abroad, they get very valuable information about positive things happening back home in India through this program.
Adding to this Yogesh Bhatt, coordinator of “Maan Ki Baat” from OFBJP Australia, advised that the program was also conducted at some landmark locations like- the Sydney Opera House and Melbourne Cricket Ground. Many office bearers of OFBJP, Australia, managed the arrangements for the program in their respective states, including- Sachin Dahiya, Ritesh Mehta, Ankur Patel, Ganesh Vallakatti, Ashutosh Agarwal, Guruduty Bhat, Piyush Satapara, Rajendra Pandey and Sthitapragyan Maharana.
