New Delhi: BJP national President JP Nadda on Sunday lauded Prime Minister Narendra Modi for never using the 'Mann Ki Baat' radio programme for political purposes.
Addressing the BJP workers in the national capital, Nadda said, "PM Modi has put forward the political issues through different platforms. He addressed the 83rd episode of the 'Mann Ki Baat'.

He focused on sports and talked about youth empowerment, as well," Nadda said.
"BJP now has a goal to gather every month to listen to and discuss 'Mann Ki Baat', in all 10.40 lakh booths till May, to connect with the nation," he added.
