Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the nation on Sunday in the 20th edition of the ‘Mann Ki Baat’ programme of the All India Radio. Modi had earlier urged people to give ideas for his popular radio programme. This is the first Mann Ki Baat after the recent election poll verdict where BJP triumphed in Assam and made some inroads in the states of Kerala and West Bengal. In his last Mann Ki Baat address on April 24, Modi had called on the nation to conserve water amid drought conditions.
