About Mann Ki Baat
The show is all about interaction between the common mass and the ruler of the nation. It is definitely not possible to reach each and every one of the nation to solve a problem, so this show is being launched to connect with people and their problems. Not only that Mr. Modi also discusses about several plans and schemes on the show so that the beneficiaries get to know the details. The show follows the nation building approach where people are asked to place their views and own ways by which the nation can grow more.
Radio – the medium of the show
Mr. Modi has chosen the All India Radio to air is show. This is because radio is the only medium which has reached several remote areas where TV does not. A lot of private radio channels are yet to reach such areas as well, but all India radio does. So PM chose to appear on such channel through which he can connect with maximum people. Indeed he is successful in his plan, because as per the reports more than 90% of the masses can listen to the show and can get connected to him.
