J P Nadda, who listened the programme at Honnali, Karnataka, said, “Mann Ki Baat has led a transformative change in our society by popularising the stories of the people who have come up with inspiring solutions for nation’s welfare.” After listening to the 100th episode of ‘Mann Ki Baat’ at India House in London, Union minister Jitendra Singh said, “…We didn’t expect such a huge turnout. The entire diaspora, I think across England, is over here at the India House… It’s also an indication of the kind of trust that people have in PM Modi… ”
Singer/actress Raageshwari, who was also at the India House, said, “I think it is fantastic. Waking up at 4 in the morning, getting ready and coming here – absolutely fruitful… I think it brings not just the country together but it also motivates the youngsters…”
“He (PM Modi) is taking out time to understand the problems of common people, this is amazing…” said actress Madhuri Dikshit after listening to the broadcast.
