Modi seeks debate on intra-party democracy, targets Congress

Media Played Pivotal Role in Making Swacch Bharat Campaign a Success, Says PM Modi at Diwali Milan Event

Modi paid his gratitude to the media for its "positive role" in making the "Swachh Bharat" (Clean India) Mission a success, despite criticising the government over other issues.

Narendra Modi today called for a debate on internal democracy in political parties but appeared to complain that the BJP, unlike in the past, was not speaking in one voice.

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".

There needs to be transparency in the recruitment of political parties, the prime minister told the journalists gathered.

Veteran party leader and former Union minister Yashwant Sinha had recently attacked the government for messing up the economy. "It is important to discuss democracy in political parties", he added.

The Prime Minister also thanked the Indian media for supporting and lauding with great enthusiasm Centre's cleanliness drive 'Swachh Bharat Abhiyan'. The funding of political parties is a point of media discussion and many things come out in the open.

In his short remark before Modi's address, BJP chief Amit Shah noted that Diwali marks the beginning of the New Year in Gujarat, a State from where he hails from, and said the country has met various challenges successfully during the last year and moving ahead in the new year with "lot of positivity".

BJP president Amit Shah will also be at the forefront of the party's campaign as he launches the "Nava Karnataka Nirmana Parivarthana Yathre" yatra in Bengaluru on November 2. He said both the ruling party and the media may have expectations as well complaints from each other but they have to get along happily amid these differences. There are so many different types of media nowadays. "But overall, how they are formed, how they function, how they recruit, their values, their ideologies and their weaknesses, what is the reason behind such weaknesses... all this should be debated", he said, adding that political parties evolving "with a true democratic spirit is necessary for the country, necessary for a democracy". That was the time when I wanted to speak to you but could not find you.
