Mann Ki Baat is about people, not politics.In Mann-Ki-Baat the voice may be mine, but the emotions and spirit are of the common people. All suggestions and comments made through this platform have been very close to me. As a run up to each episode of ‘Mann Ki Baat’, the expectations and aspirations of listeners through their letters, online comments & phone calls are crystal clear. Modi may come and go, but this country will never let go of its UNITY and permanence, our culture will always be immortal. These minute stories encompassing a 130 crore countrymen will always stay alive.’

No political person is ever happy with the media, they think they don’t get enough coverage or get negative coverage, however, the media has made the issues raised in programme their own,” the Prime minister said.
