Lucknow: Union ministry of human resource development (HRD) through University Grants Commission (UGC) has asked all universities to encourage their students as well as those studying in affiliated colleges to listen to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Mann ki Baat’ and share their views through the Narendra Modi mobile application.  Issuing notification to all universities, UGC secretary Jaspal S Sandhu said the prime minister had expressed such a desire in one of his ‘Mann ki Baat’ addresses on radio. Sandhu said that the Mann ki Baat programme aims to deliver the PM’s views to the general masses of India. In his monthly radio programme, the PM asked the youth to share their views with him through the Narendra Modi mobile app during the annual five-day National Youth Festival to mark Swami Vivekanand’s birthday.

The commission has even made available a transcript of the PM’s address aired on All India Radio on January 31, where he urged the youth to share their thoughts and views while seeking response through the Narendra Modi app. Welcoming the move, Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar University vice-chancellor R C Sobti said, “It’s a perfect way to empower students. It doesn’t matter whether you (students) agree or disagree with the PM but they get an opportunity to share their views. It’s an opportunity and privilege for students to connect with their Prime Minister.” In March, Central Board of Secondary Education asked schools to encourage students, teachers and parents to download the Modi app to share their experiences with the prime minister. –  Courtesy       /         Published on 16/05/2016  –   UGC Letter reg: Hon.
