Two books based on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s popular radio show ‘Mann Ki Baat’ have been launched today by Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan at Rashtrapati Bhawan’s Darbar Hall. President Pranab Mukherjee received the first copy of the book. The art work of the two books- ‘Mann Ki Baat: A Social Revolution on Radio’ and ‘Marching With A Billion Dreams’, have been done by a UAE based artist, Akbar Saheb. While talking about the books and praising PM Narendra Modi’s leadership, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said, “India was looking for decisive leadership in 2014.” He further said, “Blending of good governance with competent politics is essential. Governance must also have high credibility.”

While talking about the government policies and the government’s performance, he said, “One of this government’s earliest policy decisions was to eliminate any scope of discretion.” He further talked about how the use of ‘radio’ has declined over the years and said, “Over the years the radio saw a decline. But it was PM who spotted the strength of the radio as a medium.” He added, “The Prime Minister uses the radio to directly communicate with the people.”
