PM Modi Hosts Meeting for Journalists


New Delhi: A day after meeting Congress president Sonia Gandhi and former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, PM Narendra Modi organised a luncheon meeting with the representatives of the media fraternity on Saturday.

Several Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders, including party president Amit Shah, and journalists from across media organisations were present at the function.

Union Ministers M Venkaiah Naidu, Nirmala Sitharaman are attended the event. The event was a ‘Diwali Milan’, originally slated to be held earlier, but could not happen reportedly because of PM’s busy schedule.

In 2014 as well, PM Modi had organised an interaction with the media fraternity. The event was planned earlier but Modi’s foreign trip and other engagements forced the party shift the date.

This will be the second time when Modi will be meeting journalists after assuming the office in May 2014. Earlier, he had met journalists at the party headquarters on the occasion of Diwali Milan in the last week of October last year.
