The Odisha unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has made elaborate arrangements and a massive outreach programme to mark the 100th episode of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 'Mann Ki Baat' on Sunday. The BJP is all set to organise the historic broadcast at more than 2000 booths across Odisha.
As per reports, the Mann Ki Baat this Sunday will not only be listened to by party members, but the BJP will be including common people in the programme as well.
Speaking about the 100th episode plans, Odisha BJP President, Manmohan Samal said, “This is a historical programme of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Mann Ki Baat is popular not only in India but across the world as well. Tomorrow’s programme is going to be a world record.”
“Over 26 crore people are regularly watching the programme every month. Out of which 56 per cent of viewers have been inspired by this. The primary purpose of this programme is to bring talented and skilled people in the lower rungs of society to the fore. The programme also aims to discuss the social evils and how to eradicate them in order to take the country ahead,” said Samal.
“This programme does not have any political agenda. In fact, I want to invite the BJD and Congress to participate in the programme to listen to PM Modi tomorrow,” he said.
The BJP in Delhi will be organising a national conclave named 'Mann Ki Baat @100' to celebrate the event and it will be graced by around 100 esteemed citizens from various parts of the country who have been mentioned by the Prime Minster in the previous episodes.
The conclave will be organised by Prasar Bharati in Vigyan Bhawan in the national capital. The inaugural session of the Conclave will also be graced by Vice President Jagdeep Dhankar and Union Minister Anurag Thakur tomorrow.
The guests include Bhagyashree Sahu from Odisha who received appreciation from Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Mann Ki Baat for her Pattachitra paintings on soft stones.
