Modi, Obama to address Jointly Nation over Radio

New Delhi, Jan 22: This month Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "Mann Ki Baat" radio broadcast will be something special as he will not be alone to address the 125 crore people of India, but he will be accompanied by US President Barack Obama. The special episode will be aired on January 27.

Putting all the speculations into rest over the possibility of Obama to join Modi's radio programme, the PM on Thursday tweeted, "This month’s "Mann Ki Baat" episode will be a special one, where our Republic Day guest @BarackObama & I will share our thoughts together".

"I am eagerly looking forward to the special Mann Ki Baat programme with President @BarackObama, which will be aired on 27th January".

He invited questions from the public on the Radio show. "MyGov gives you the opportunity to post your questions on a specially created Open Forum. #AskObamaModi & be a part of this memorable Mann Ki Baat programme, illustrating a special bond between India & USA," he tweeted.

Although, this joint address of Modi-Obama on radio talk show will be the first of its kind in India, but this will be for the second time Modi and Obama will share their thoughts together to people. Earlier, the two world leaders had jointly written an OP-ED page for an American daily during Modi's visit to US in September 2014. 

Obama is visiting India as the chief guest for the Republic Day celebration. He will be here from January 25- 27 at Modi's invitation.
