Goa Bharatiya Janata Party president Sadanand Shet Tanavade attended the broadcast of the radio address at a programme organised by the BJP in state capital Panaji.
Talking to reporters, Tanavade said, “Right from ‘Swachh Bharat’ (clean India) to ‘Beti Bachao’ (save the daughter), the initiatives promoted through ‘Maan ki Baat’ were well taken by citizens.” The 100th episode received a tremendously good response in Goa, he said, adding that the PM has put across how the issues raised in the last 99 episodes have helped to create the change.
The PM has kept the country’s interest as of paramount importance in his radio address, Tanavade said.
