PM Modi urges media to 'play constructive role 'in democracy

Prime Minister Narendra Modi

"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. Modi also acknowledged that there are many voices within the BJP as he noted that when it was a small organisation earlier or during the times of Jana Sangh, its forerunner, there used to be "ideological harmony" from its central leadership down to workers in the bottom rung. It is true that the funding of political parties is a point of media discussion and many things come out in the open.

The Prime Minister said today that parties with a "true democratic spirit" are essential for a healthy democracy. "It is because the size of the party has grown, making it hard to give intense training and communicate", he said. While the ordinance has been put on the back-burner for now, senior BJP functionaries indicated that had Rajasthan Chief Minister made a decision to carry on with the legislation, the central leadership would have intervened.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with BJP president Amit Shah on Saturday attended "Diwali Milan" programme at the BJP headquarters in New Delhi.

Modi's call was apparently against the backdrop of the likely elevation of Rahul Gandhi as the Congress president next month and in line with the BJP's sustained attack on the dynastic rule and "lack of internal democracy" in the main Opposition party.

"Democracy in political parties is a subject more people should know more about".

Union Minister Smriti Irani and senior party leaders including GVL Narsimha Rao, Sambit Patra were also present at the event. "Half of the newspaper pages would be filled with the government's criticism.But when it comes to the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, all are on the same page", he said.

The sources in the party said that the party cadres were instructed by Mr. Javadekar, to mobilize large number of people for the rally in Bidar. "I thank each one of you for making it a personal mission". Now, we don't get to sit and chat, like those old days.
