U. S. President Barack Obama will join Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his monthly radio interaction Mann Ki Baat on All India Radio on January 27.

That there would be a special programme where the two would share their thoughts and respond to questions was announced by Mr. Modi himself via Twitter on Thursday morning.

In a series of tweets, the Prime Minister invited the public to participate in the programme. Questions can also be posted on the Government's 'MyGov' interactive portal, he said. "Eagerly looking forward" to the special programme, Mr. Modi added that this illustrates a special bond between India and the U.S.





Since October, Mr. Modi has been going on air once a month to address the nation and take questions on issues that are pre-determined. He has spoken on the use of khaadi and against drug abuse from this platform in the past.
