Additionally, he had also warned people to be on guard against those who might try to spread unrest in the wake of the top court order.

Sunday will be the Prime Minister’s fifth Mann Ki Baat address since his reelection earlier this year with a massive mandate. His first address after reelection was on June 30, followed by editions on July 28, September 29 and October 27.

Mann Ki Baat is aired on All India Radio (AIR), DD National and DD News. Its first three editions were all broadcast in 2014, the year Modi was first elected as Prime Minister, on October 3, November 2 and December 14 respectively.
