Tuesday September 30, 2014 7:48 PM, IANS

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will connect with the people through national broadcaster All India Radio on Oct 3.

The speech, which will be exclusive to AIR, will also be telecast on all news channels of Doordarshan, AIR Director General (News) Archana Dutta told IANS.

The speech will begin at 11 a.m.

Modi had announced in the beginning of September on the website that he will be sharing his ideas through radio, and also said in a tweet that he has received many ideas and suggestions for it.

This is likely to be the first in a series.

According to officials, the speech will be quickly translated into 24 Indian and 16 foreign languages.

The radio programme is one of the efforts being made by Modi to connect with the people.

According to AIR old-timers, former prime minister Indira Gandhi was the last leader to have regularly used the radio medium to address the nation.

According to the AIR website, its service comprises 413 stations located across the country, reaching nearly 92 percent of the country's area and 99.19 percent of the population.

AIR originates programming in 23 languages and 146 dialects.
