On Friday evening, Prime Minister Narendra Modi appeared in a press conference for the first time in his five-year-long tenure. It was a bizarre press conference as he didn’t take a single question from the press. Modi and party president Amit Shah both condemned Bhopal BJP candidate Pragya Singh Thakur’s comments about Nathuram Godse but refused to take action against her. In fact, her candidature has been termed as a satyagraha (peaceful agitation for truth)!
There is a turmoil going on in the Election Commission of India (ECI) because of many complaints against Modi. Amid all this, he chose to go on a pilgrimage to Badrinath-Kedarnath.
Senior journalist, Urmilesh takes on all these issues in this episode of ‘Hafte ki Baat’.
