Nagaland marks 100th episode of PM’s Mann Ki Baat

Nagaland on Sunday joined the rest of the country to mark the 100th episode of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Mann Ki Baat’ monthly radio programme.
A special screening of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Mann Ki Baat 100th episode was held at Raj Bhavan, Kohima on Sunday.
Information & Public Relations and Soil & Water Conservation adviser Imkong L Imchen and host of officials were present on the occasion.
Secretary to governor Rajesh Soundararajan read governor La Ganesan’s message on the occasion. In his message, Ganesan stated that the Prime Minister conducted Mann Ki Baat programme every month with an objective of establishing a dialogue with citizens of the country on issues of day-to-day governance. He said the essence and conduct of the programme reflected the cultural ethos and heritage of the country and reached out to a wide spectrum of socially, economically and culturally-diverse people.
The governor said the programme had successfully established a mechanism to take welfare schemes and policies to the people and generate awareness about the same. He recalled that the platform was extensively used by the Prime Minister during the Covid-19 pandemic to educate the masses about the pandemic. He termed the programme as a very effective tool for social movements.
The governor observed that the programme highlighted stories of changemakers from different parts of the country who worked selflessly, but otherwise missed out by the mainstream media.
He recalled an interaction of the Prime Minister with an NCC cadet from Nagaland during one such programme. He shared that Modi appreciated the Lidi Kro-u society, a group from Kohima village, for their efforts in preservation and propagation of Naga traditional arts and crafts. He hoped that many more achievers from Nagaland would find mention in future episodes of the programme.
Press Information Bureau assistant director Sonukumar Singh Konjengbam delivered the welcome address, while vote of thanks was proposed by B Srinivasa Rao of Doordarshan Kendra, Kohima,
