Earlier this month, PM Modi had requested people to drop in their suggestions to “discuss themes that power societal change” for the radio programme that is telecasted every last Sunday of the month at 11 AM.

PM Modi has been receiving a lot of backlash for his monthly address through ‘Mann Ki Baat’ since August after many disappointed students asked the PM to address the JEE, NEET exams postponement issue and instead, he talked about other trivial issues.

He got a record number of dislikes on the YouTube channel of the BJP amid outrage over the entrance exams.
