The joint radio address of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Barack Obama has been recorded and will be broadcast at 8 PM on Tuesday.
Modi tweeted this Monday along with a photograph showing him with Obama with a caption: â€œSharing our â€˜Mann Ki Baatâ€™ during the recording of the radio programme. Tune in on 27th January at 8 PM IST for the special episode! #MannKiBaat #Radio #USA #India.â€
Modi has been addressing the nation over radio every month since October last through the â€˜Mann Ki Baatâ€™ programme. Reflecting the growing Indo-US ties, Obama decided to join Modi in the monthly address during his ongoing three-day visit.
The Prime Minister, while making the announcement on January 22, said, â€œThis monthâ€™s â€˜Mann Ki Baatâ€™ episode will be a special one, where our Republic Day guest @BarackObama & I will share our thoughts together.â€
He had invited questions from the public, saying, â€œâ€˜Mann Ki Baatâ€™ with President @BarackObama will not be complete without your participation!”
