Top 5 quotes from PM Narendra Modi's interaction with journalists

Though he did not mention the party, his attack was on the Congress which he and the BJP have repeatedly accused of being "dynastic" and "undemocratic", saying that a member of Nehru-Gandhi family normally occupies its top post.

Stressing the inter-dependent relationship between politicians and the media, he said that "there have been expectations on both sides as also complaints". Do democratic values form the core of their values.

Applauding the media, he said that the press has a huge impact on people.

He pointed out that funding to political parties is often debated but not their values, ideologies, internal democracy and how they give opportunities to the new generation of leaders.

"Political parties should develop in true democratic spirit, this is very important for the country's future", Modi said. We need to find a middle path to move forward. How the leadership of a political party evolves?

"It is no longer seen that a party's view is made by senior leaders and everyone down the line speaks the same view. The problem is not in intention but there are practical problems", said Modi.


The Prime Minister also recalled that he used to spend time with journalists at the same place and there were times when they had to look for journalists. "There was a different atmosphere of happiness, we talked a lot, but today it is hard It is done". "But it has become hard now", he said.

The Prime Minister's comments come at a time when U.P. legislator Sangeet Som called Taj Mahal a blot on Indian history forcing Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath tp pay a hurried visit to the monument soon after.

"Half of the newspaper pages are filled with the criticism of the government".

PM asserted that it is only by experience one could conclude who comes with an agenda and who comes to serve the people of the nation.

Modi also expressed his gratitude to the media for its "positive role" in making the National Democratic Alliance government's Swachh Bharat Mission a success. But when it comes to the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, all are on the same page.
