“And, all of us, including the Indian diaspora, the embassy, staff, my personal team, myself, all of us would be there watching it, listening to it in a festive mood,” he said.
The programme, which started on October 3, 2014, has become a key pillar of the government’s citizen-outreach programme addressing multiple social groups such as women, youth, and farmers and has spurred community action.

Calling PM Modi thoughtful, Singh further added that he never dropped any hint of political leaning or affiliation with any political party in his radio address and that the Prime Minister was only talking about the people of India trying to relate to them the various political programmes that he has rolled out at them.
“Trying to talk to the beneficiaries so that others who had not benefitted so far could also pick up cues. Collecting inputs to improve his reforms. this is one of the most miraculous things happening,” the Minister said while speaking about PM Modi’s monthly radio broadcast.
