PM criticises media, says has pre-set agenda during interviews

PM criticises media says has preset agenda during interviews Prime Minister Narendra Modi criticises media, says it has a pre-set agenda while asking questions that often leads the person interviewed to give the answer media wants.

“This is our experience in interviews, we have to reply at every roundabout and nook and corner. In most of the interviews, the person asking questions has already decided on the answers. The person will not let you go unless you give him the answer he wants. Once you give the answer they want, they lose interest in you,” Modi said.

Modi was addressing a gathering to mark 21 years of popular TV show ‘Aap ki Adalat’ hosted by senior journalist Rajat Sharma on India TV. President Pranab Mukherjee was also present on the occasion.

Appreciating the show, he said this is one place where the “accused” is not led into answering something pre-decided.

“It is not required to force people to answer the way you want,” he said.

President Pranab Mukherjee also lauded the show saying 125 crore Indians have appointed Sharma as their “public prosecutor”.
