In a tweet from the party's official handle, the BJP tweeted the details of where one can watch the 100th episode of Mann Ki Baat.

The Ministry of Tourism has announced a special action plan called "100 days of action" to mark the 100th episode of Mann Ki Baat. Under this action plan, the ministry has a challenge for entrepreneurs to make substitutes for single-use plastic items.

The Finance Ministry also announced the release of a stamp and a Rs 100 coin to commemorate 100 episodes of Mann Ki Baat.

"I think it's for the first time in the history of our memory that any head of government had chosen to address citizens regularly month after month without break," Union Minister of Science and Technology Jitendra Singh said. 

A study supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation said, that the Mann Ki Baat radio address has transformed into an "inspirational platform" encouraging sustainable progress on themes that are core to India's efforts towards achieving sustainable development goals.

About 'Mann ki Baat'

The first episode of Mann Ki Baat was aired on October 3, 2014, the year when PM Modi took charge. 

The radio talk show is broadcasted on last Sunday of every month, where PM Modi addresses the nation and talks on issues of public concern, the government's policies, and achievements.

The show not only highlights the government's actions but also talks about significant citizen action in priority areas and in turn encourages listeners to take part in change-making initiatives in their own communities.
