Veteran Indian singer Lata Mangeshkar, who turned 90 on Saturday, has joined Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his monthly programme Mann Ki Baat on Sunday. The singer joined the PM through a call.
“There would hardly be anyone who does not show utmost regard for Lata Mangeshkar ji,” said PM Modi, while extending birthday wishes to the singer. Lata Mangeshkar said that the picture of the country was changing with PM Modi in power.
It may be mentioned here that Modi previously hosted Barack Obama as a special guest in the Mann Ki Baat programme in January 2015.
During his programme, PM Modi spoke about celebrating “inclusive” festivals and also asked the people to celebrate their daughters as he launched the Bharat Ki Laxmi. He urged people to highlight the achievements of their daughters by using hashtag #BharatKiLaxmi on social media.
