In a tweet, PM Modi said that he has personally experienced the positive impact of radio through his monthly radio programme 'Maan Ki Baat'.

"Happy World Radio Day! Greetings to all radio listeners and kudos to all those who keep the radio buzzing with innovative content and music. This is a fantastic medium, which deepens social connect. I personally experience the positive impact of radio thanks to #MannKiBaat," PM Modi tweeted.

Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar also extended his greetings on World Radio Day.
