"We commit mistakes and give masala to media". "If everyone comments on everything then the conversation goes off the tangent, this harms the country, the party and our personal image". AMC also slammed government for lower budget allocation to health sector.

He warned all the legislators and said not to make any ill-informed statements which could later be used by the media and urged the leaders to use social media instead to connect with the people.

At a party conclave a year ago, Modi had asked leaders to "practice the art of silence". "Whatever be the issue, we start speaking, as soon as we spot a camera", ANI reported Modi as saying. "It is not the media's fault", the PM said, as per The Times of India. He said Mudra Yojna is also helping people and 11 crore people have already been benefitted from the scheme.

While speaking at a campaign meeting in Sulebhavi village a few days back, BJP MLA Sanjay Patil had said that the upcoming assembly election in Karnataka is not a fight for good roads or drinking water but is about Hindus and Muslims.


To a question on improving lives of people in villages, he laid stress on the collective power of people and referred to Anna Hazares village in Maharashtra where the social activist had focused on cleanliness and how the village had become a model for others to follow.

Those doing politics over employment figure may do so but the government will provide the masses with self-employment opportunities by developing skills of the youth, he said. BJP didn't come to power because of mistakes of Congress party but the party was given a chance to govern because it worked for the people.

During an hour-long interaction, the Prime Minister also shared his views on the recently launched "Ayushman Bharat" scheme. He said the government is focusing on education to children, opportunities for youth and medicine for elderly.

"There is a need to highlight that the recommendations of the Swaminathan Commission on Minimum Support Price have been implemented, so that the farmers can benefit from it", he said asking the lawmakers to organise workshops on the latest farming techniques in villages.
