At his maiden Press conference too, Modi does ‘Maan Ki Baat’ as Shah takes all questions
PM Modi addressed first Press conference in his five year tenure but took no questions
PATNA: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday created a record of sort when he addressed the first Press conference in the past five years only to answer a lone question of the journalist.
Although he remained seated alongside BJP Amit Shah, he maintained silence for most of the time and deflected just all the queries to the former claiming he was a “disciplined soldier” of the party.
“It has not happened often in the country that a government with full majority is set to return with a majority. This is a great thing in itself,” Narendra Modi said, predicting smooth win of the party even as the seventh and final phase of polling is still left. The final round of polling is to be held on Sunday.
While he has given interviews to various media organizations one by one but he never addressed any Press conference in the past she since he took oath as the PM in 2014.
Friday Press conference was hardly different with the PM remaining tight-lipped on most of the time or doing “Maan Ki Baat”. So, it was Shah who took most of the questions from the media as Modi watched.
Reports said the journalists had been called to attend the press conference of Amit Shah but much to their surprise, PM Modi also showed at the conference but he disappointed the journalists as most of the questions directed to him were diverted to Shah.
In his address, Shah claimed the BJP was set to win the elections with majority and the Modi’s returning as the PM was just a formality.
“Bade bahumat se Modi ji sarkar banane ja rahi hai,” Shah claimed, adding the PM worked for every section of the society. According to him, the PM addressed a total of 1423 election rallies and held four road shows.
