It was for the first time during the last five years of his rule that prime minister Narendra Modi addressed the media, at the party headquarter at Deen Dayal Upadhyay Marg, New Delhi.
Journalists who were quite eager and enthusiastic to field questions to the prime minister having never addressed the press conference during his entire tenure however, have to come back empty handed except constrained to field questions to the party supremo Amit Shah only.
However, prime minister minister Narendra Modi did addressed them after a long speech of Amit Shah but it sounded more like a mere formality.
The prime minister while being highly optimistic of his party gaining more than three hundred seats’ majority as repeatedly said by Amit Shah as well, assured that he will now endeavour hard to fulfill all the election promises giving outstanding governance to the people of the country.
BJP Supremo however answered all the questions himself ranging from Rafale to Pragya Thakur to violence in Bengal to Mamata Bannerjee and even prime minister Modi supported him by saying that it’s the party president who answers to the media than the PM as far as the organisations’s descipline or norm says.
Obviously avoiding the media on several complex questions.
Prime minister Narendra Modi while thanking the media persons for their incessant cooperation during the elections said that there was a time when he used to interact with the journalists at the party headquarters very oftenly.
Lots of new faces have come now while some old friends are still there he added.
He spoke about the Indian election being the largest festival of democracy and appealed to the journalists to accquaint the world about the merits of the Indian democracy.
Praising his government’s model of best governance he said it was because of the success of his BJP led NDA’s outstanding governance that IPL, exams, all Indian festivals whether Ramzan, Ram Navmi or Navratras etc were held in the country simultaneously alongwith the peaceful, fair n easy conduction of general elections whereas during the previous regime’s tenure the IPL tournaments have to be shifted outside.
Prime minister Modi said today is 17th May and for him this day holds immense significance because it was on this day that the Congress govt confronted a huge casualty and the country witnessed the emergence of a new honest government in 2014.
On May 23 we will again have a very strong n cohesive government with more than 300 MPs.
While thanking the people of the country for giving his party an overwhelmning majority in 2014 and also now, Modi said that with the blessings of the countrymen we are again forming the government with a more majority than before.
