New Delhi, 27 December 2020

The "thali bajaao (clang plates)" protest during PM Modi's address was announced last Sunday. Making the announcement, Swaraj India chief Yogendra Yadav had said, "On December 27 when the Prime Minister gives his Mann Ki Baat radio address, farmers will say 'we are tired of listening to your Mann ki Baat, when will you listen to our Mann ki Baat?' So we will bang utensils so that the noise of his Mann ki Baat doesn't reach us," he explained. The idea of clanging plates and clapping was floated by the Prime Minister earlier this year to felicitate the frontline workers battling coronavirus as the lockdown started. In today's Mann ki Baat, PM Modi referred to it also.
