Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Sunday that his radio show was the “mann ki baat” for millions of Indians and an expression of their emotions.

“Today is the 100th episode of Mann Ki Baat. I have thousands of letters, thousands of messages. I tried to go through more and more. I got emotional reading your letters many times I was carried away by emotions and then held back. You congratulated me on the 100th episode of Mann Ki Baat, but all the listeners, our countrymen deserve congratulations. Mann Ki Baat is the ‘Mann Ki Baat of millions of Indians and the expression of their emotions,’ Prime Minister Modi said.

Speaking on the occasion, Dixit said, “He (PM Modi) takes time to understand the problems of ordinary people. This is amazing. He is reaching out to people in small towns and villages who are doing such a good job and people don’t know about it. So he brings these people in front of all citizens and they get global recognition, which is amazing. I’m sure it will inspire a lot of young people.

“Modi ji wanted to keep in touch with people, I think that’s the sign of a great leader. All the greatest leaders in history, be they kings or prime ministers, have always remained connected to the people. There can be no deeper connection than this, being able to speak your mind and listen to people’s words, being able to convey your words to them. I felt very lucky to have been invited here. It’s a privilege to be here,” Kapoor said.

Director and producer Rohit Shetty said, “I felt inspired, if a leader can show us the right path, then nothing is impossible. When I watched, I felt how lucky we were to have such an inspirational leader that people listen to, get inspired by, which is very rare.”

Meanwhile, singer Raageshwari, who attended an event in London, UK, said: “I think it’s fantastic. Waking up at 4 a.m., getting ready and coming here – absolutely fruitful…I think it not only brings the country together, but it also motivates young people…”

The programme, which began on October 3, 2014, has become a key pillar of the government’s citizen awareness program reaching out to multiple social groups such as women, youth and farmers and has stimulated community action.
