  • Need more internal democracy in political parties Narendra Modi

While Shah lauded the NDA government at the Centre for successfully fighting every challenge, be it at the borders or to improve the lives of the poor, Modi thanked the media for making a positive change by making the Swacch Abhiyan its own mission.

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

PM Modi said, "Democracy in political parties is a subject more people should know more about". "We are entering the new year with a lot of positivity", he said.

He said, "I remember how I used to spend time with you, most of you are from the same generation, lost in past memories is natural, there was no obstacle or difficulty at that time".

The Prime Minister also stressed out upon the significance of democracy asserting that all political parties must talk about democracy. But overall, the debate in the media must also focus on how they are formed, how they function, how they recruit and develop leadership and foster their values and ideologies.

Modi, who was speaking at the annual BJP "Deepavali Mangal Milan" organised for the media, appeared to be alluding to recent controversies like the one on Taj Mahal. It is true that the funding of political parties is a point of media discussion and many things come out in the open.

Though he did not mention the party, his attack was on the Congress which he and the BJP have repeatedly accused of being "dynastic" and "undemocratic", saying that a member of Nehru-Gandhi family normally occupies its top post.

"Whether democratic values are a part of the core values of political parties or not should be debated widely".

Union Minister Smriti Irani and senior party leaders including GVL Narsimha Rao, Sambit Patra were also present at the event. "In the past few days, all newspapers have been filled with the criticism of the government".

He said the media has expanded so much now that it was hard to meet all journalists.

They said, "Some of you say that Modi did not meet you, before we met you, knocked on the door and used to go in. We have a long association with each other and there is an understanding with which we all work for the country", he said.
