Modi had announced in the beginning of September on the website that he will be sharing his ideas through radio, and also said in a tweet that he has received many ideas and suggestions for it.

This is likely to be the first in a series. According to officials, the speech will be quickly translated into 24 Indian and 16 foreign languages.

The radio programme is one of the efforts being made by Modi to connect with the people.
