Modi Press Conference: Prime Minister Narendra Modi attended his first press conference in five years at BJP headquarters on Friday. However, the hype around the press conference was short lived as PM Modi didn’t take questions from the media. It was BJP president Amit Shah who responded to media queries.
Speaking at the press conference on the last day of campaigning for Lok Sabha election 2019, PM Modi exuded confidence that the BJP will return to power with a bigger mandate than 2014. “I am overwhelmed by the public support during election campaign. We will retain power will a bigger mandate,” PM Modi said.
PM Modi, however, told media persons that he will not take any questions as the presser was being addressed by party president. “We are disciplined soldiers of the party,” PM Modi said.
Responding to a question regarding BJP’s Bhopal candidate Sadhvi Pragya’s remark describing Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse as a ‘patriot’, Amit Shah said the party disapproves of such statement and it has issued a show cause notice to her. “Action will be initiated as per the party constitution,” the BJP chief said.
