Modi’s media equation

July 26 2014

In the past, Modi had put an end to this trend in Gujarat as well. When Keshubhai Patel’s government came into power in Gujarat, he started a special bus shuttle service between Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar to please the journalists. That is because there was a common complaint among the journalists that they have to make quite some effort to reach Gandhinagar from Ahmedabad. So Keshubhai Patel started a free AC bus service for them, which also served them snacks and cold drinks. As soon as Modi came into power, he made the daily bus service into alternate days, then weekly and gradually phased it out. Modi had a clear belief that while the government’s job is to work, it is the media’s job to cover it and there should be no need to give special services to the media for the same. But did Modi think about it during his election campaigns?
