"Looking forward to 'Mann Ki Baat' on the 26th of this month," Modi tweeted. This is the seventh edition of the radio programme initiated in October last year in which the Prime Minister shares his thoughts with the citizens.

Modi has already interacted directly with the people in the earlier six editions of 'Mann Ki Baat'.

"He has dwelt upon several issues close to the hearts of the people such as Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, promotion of khadi, skill development, scholarship for disabled children, infrastructure for educational institutions, menace of drugs and the issues related to farmers," a PMO statement said.

In the last edition broadcast on March 22, he had shared the concerns of farmers and said the government will take proper and prompt steps to resolve their problems and do its level best to help them tide over difficult situation.

Earlier in January, he also shared the 'Mann Ki Baat' forum with US President Barack Obama during his visit here when the two leaders interacted with the people on a host of issues.
