Governor of Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu C. Vidyasagar Rao and Chief Minister of Maharashtra Devendra Fadnavis released the book ‘Mann Ki Baat – A Social Revolution on Radio’ at Raj Bhavan in Mumbai yesterday. Union Minister Piyush Goyal was also present on the occasion.
The book, among other things, includes transcripts of the first 23 episodes of Prime Minister’s monthly address on radio ‘Mann Ki Baat’.
On the occasion the governor C. Vidyasagar Rao said, this book enables citizens to read and understand Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision and his ideas of development. He said, that in spite of new mediums of communications, Modi chose All India Radio as the medium for broadcasting his programme, mainly because even today Radio is the only medium which reaches 99 percent of the population of the country. Rao further said, the seeds of numerous revolutions planted by Prime Minister through ‘Mann Ki Baat’ will bear fruits in years to come.
Speaking on the occasion, Power Minister Piyush Goyal said, ‘Mann Ki Baat’ is a new design of communication to reach people and it has truly worked as a revolution.
