PM Narendra Modi to share ‘Mann Ki Baat’ with Barack Obama

 New Delhi: In a bid to make US President Barack Obama’s India visit memorable, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has decided to hold a joint radio address with the visiting American leader on January 27.
The Prime Minister took to his Twitter account on Thursday to confirm the development by tweeting, “I am eagerly looking forward to the special ‘Mann Ki Baat’ programme with President @BarackObama, which will be aired on 27th January.”

& be a part of this memorable ‘Mann Ki Baat’ programme, illustrating a special bond between India & USA.

It should be noted that Modi and Obama, during formers visit to Washington DC in September last year, together had penned a joint op-ed along in the Washington Post. This was for the first time that an Indian leader has ventured on the path of a joint editorial.

Obama is expected to arrive here on January 25. On the same day, bilateral meetings, delegation-level talks followed by a state dinner at Rashtrapati Bhavan is scheduled. On the January 26, Obama will be at the majestic Rajpath for more than two-hours as a Chief Guest, witnessing the Republic Day parade.

On January 27, he is expected to give a speech on India and America at the Siri Fort Auditorium. In November 2010, Obama had done a town-hall meeting in St Xavier’s College, Mumbai.

Obama is also scheduled to visit the eternal monument of love – Taj Mahal – in Agra on January 27 before leaving for his home country.

Obama’s visit is also special because it is believed that he will be bringing his family — wife Michelle and daughters Sasha and Malia. His daughters have been specially invited to visit India, and it’s a sign of the state of the relationship. In 1995, it was the turn of then first lady Hilary Clinton to bring her own daughter Chelsea to India. Obama’s national security adviser Susan Rice has already done a family vacation in India with her children, which may have served as recommendation.
