Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while addressing his radio show "Mann ki Baat" on Sunday, said the radio programme has become a unique opportunity to connect with the entire country.

The Pro-Active Governance And Timely Implementation (PRAGATI) is an interactive platform that has been launched by PM Modi.

Referring to competitions organized during the campaign, the Prime Minister said, more than 2 crore 50 lakh children took part in essay competition on cleanliness and thousands of students made paintings based on their own imagination.

A senior party leader said the issue of Rohingya immigrants, who the government has termed a threat to security of the country, may also find a mention.

Delivering the 36th edition of the monthly radio address to the nation, the Prime Minister said, "I have tried to keep the common man as the focus in Mann Ki Baat and kept it away from politics". He also urged people to share information about what they see as the best tourism destinations in the country, saying they can act as a major catalyst in promoting tourism by sharing experiences, photographs with the the hashtag "Incredible India" and also writing good travelogues.

"We should feel India's diversity, touch it, feel its fragrance.Impressed by mere superficial glitter we have started enjoying touring foreign countries only".

He said Swati Mahadik and Nidhi Dubey, whose husbands were martyred in the defence of the country, were a great inspiration to the country.

In Mann Ki Baat, PM Modi congratulated the SMC Srinagar for their initiative for picking him as Brand Ambassador. People can also give a missed call on the number 1922 and can hear "Mann ki Baat" on their mobiles. He said, social scientists, universities, research scholars, media experts will undertake its analysis and highlight its every aspect, positive as well as negative.

"The khadi ashram in Uttar Pradesh's Varanasi was defunct for the last 26 years". "I am sure that this brainstorming could be useful for "Mann Ki Baat" in future and will infuse new energy into it", he said.
