PM Modi: Media should help make citizens aware about internal party democracies

PM Modi speaking at the function

The country has witnessed the positive role played by media in making the Swach Bharat Mission a success.

This "ideological unanimity" he said, seems to have lost with the expansion of the party.

"Democracy in political parties is a subject people should know more about", Modi added. "We are entering the new year with a lot of positivity", he said. He said that during the Jan Sangh era, which preceded the BJP, the view of the central leadership and the junior-most party worker was the same.

Modi said it was essential that political parties develop with a "true democratic spirit".

Top leaders of BJP including Union minister for human resources development, Prakash Javadekar, and Union railways minister, Piyush Goyal, chaired a series of meetings to review the state unit's readiness for next year's elections to the Legislative Assembly.

Mr Modi and Mr Shah also interacted with media person during the event.

BJP president Amit Shah will also be at the forefront of the party's campaign as he launches the "Nava Karnataka Nirmana Parivarthana Yathre" yatra in Bengaluru on November 2. "There are expectations from both sides, there are complaints from both sides", Modi told reporters in the Diwali meet program of BJP, but I feel that this is our professional problem.

"I remember when I was not in politics, it was the early days of the BJP, I used to read newspapers and understand what was the party's overall thought process". He also said that apart from their jobs, the media also has suggestions to improve the country. He also praised the media for its support to "Swachh Bharat" (Clean India) project, saying it has spoken in one voice over the issue even if it might have been critical of the government over other matters.

"Journalists are able to observe things from a different perspective as they move around and talk to many people". Nowadays, though, you complain that we do not get to sit and chat like we used to. "We have a long association with each other and there is an understanding with which we all work for the country", he said.
