Prime Minister Narendra Modi will give an interview on Friday morning, three months after his last major television interaction. The twitter handle of Republic Bharat announced Thursday that Prime Minister Modi’s interview will be broadcast on the channel Friday at 8 am.
While PM Modi’s last interview was to Asian News International, he has given interviews to news channels Times Now, Zee News, and News18 in the past.
PM Modi was last interviewed by ANI editor Smita Prakash in January this year. The interview received a mixed response from the political spectrum with Congress president Rahul Gandhi alleging it to be a ‘staged interview’. While the BJP demanded an apology from Rahul, National Union of Journalists (India) said it was unbecoming of the Congress president to mock the interviewer.
In the interview, PM Modi had remarked about the upcoming Lok Sabha Elections, where Prime Minister Modi said, “It is going to be ‘Janta’ versus ‘gathbandhan’.
