Mann ki Baat LIVE Updates: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will at 11 am address the first ‘Mann Ki Baat’ of 2021, which will be the 73rd episode of his monthly radio programme. This comes a day ahead of presentation of Union Budget for 2021-22 by finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman. It also comes days after the Republic Day violence when farmers agitating against the new farm reforms stormed the Red Fort and clashed with Delhi Police. PM Modi had a day earlier told floor leaders of various political parties that his government’s offer on agri laws made to protesting farmers “still stands” and it was a “phone call away” for talks. A similar meeting will be held by vice president and Rajya Sabha chairman M Venkaiah Naidu with the Upper House members to seek support for the smooth conduct of the Budget Session.
