This podcast will be a counter to the Mann Ki Baat radio broadcast by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. As of now, the podcast is in the planning stage and there are no dates for when it will go live. The podcast comes after the party's social media campaigns during the coronavirus lockdown – Speak Up India – turned out to be a “huge hit”.

According to the report by Hindustan Times, the Congress member who asked to stay anonymous stated, “Right now, we are at the planning stage and are discussing the finer points with the experts and asking them how to go about it.” The official added that when this podcast goes live, it will be a counter to the Prime Minister's Mann Ki Baat monthly radio broadcast.

On the other hand, PM Modi's YouTube channel, which was also started in 2017, has over 6.4 million subscribers. The former Congress chief is also behind in terms of social media following on Twitter and Facebook.

Details on what the podcast will be about are also currently unclear and the frequency of it is also unknown. However, more information on the same can be expected on the coming weeks. A podcast can be a great way to communicate with the public and reach out to a larger number of people, in order to inform and share ideas.
