In his 22nd ‘Mann Ki Baat’ Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke for nearly 35 minutes to his listeners and talked about a range of issues from Rio Olympics to the importance of science and technology. He talked about initiatives taken by the government for ensuring the health of pregnant women and how the Centre is helping those affected by floods. He talked at length about his South Africa trip and how he travelled on the train that changed Mahatma Gandhi’s life.

On the monthly show, which airs on All India Radio and Doordarshan every month, he mentioned the importance of taking medicines and also warned people against digital fraud. With Raksha Badhan around the corner, he spoke about the relationships between brothers and sisters, and invited people to communicate with him using the Narendra Modi app, MyGov website and other platforms.

But people on social media aren’t very happy about this ‘Mann Ki Baat’ as they expected Modi to address the more recent issues that have caught national attention. Many took to Twitter to share that the PM should have spoken about atrocities and brutal violence against four Dalit youths by self-proclaimed ‘gau rakshaks’ in Una and the Kashmir unrest. In fact, former J&K chief minister Omar Abdullah also shared his disappointment saying, “How I wish my Prime Minister had found a few reassuring words for my state.” There are people who even want him to talk about larger issues like global warming and climate change.

Take a look at what people have suggested.
