Now a mobile number to listen live to PM's monthly Mann ki Baat

New Delhi: While a toll free number 1800-11-7800 had been activated for receiving ideas and suggestions from people for the Prime Minister Narendra Modi's monthly 'Mann ki Baat' last week, a new mobile number has been activated for those who want to listen to the broadcast on the go.

Modi announced in his broadcast today that anyone could dial 8190881908 to listen to the broadcasts live. The broadcasts can also be heard on narendramodi.in/mannkibaat, allindiaradio.gov.in or on an All India Radio mobile app.

Furthermore, he encouraged citizens to post on the mygov.in website photographs of railway stations and other places which had been beautified by artists with their paintings as part of the Swachh Bharat movement.

Earlier, the toll free number had been introduced by MyGov to further broad-base the opportunity for citizens from non-internet enabled areas to submit their ideas and suggestions for the PM’s monthly ‘Mann ki Baat' radio broadcasts.

In the 15 episodes of ‘Mann ki Baat’ broadcast till December 2015, more than 61,000 ideas had been received on the website and 1.43 lakh audio calls were also received.

Each month, some selected calls become a part of the broadcast. The caller’s ideas and suggestions are heard by the country-wide ‘Mann ki Baat’ audience in the caller’s voice. Till December, nine such calls had been selected for broadcast.

The permanent toll free number 1800-11-7800 of MyGov has now been institutionalized for giving an opportunity to citizens to give their ideas and suggestions for the PM’s monthly ‘Mann ki Baat’ radio broadcast.

Citizens are invited to submit their ideas and suggestions on issues of national development and as in previous episodes, some of the messages may become part of the broadcast.
