PM Narendra Modi hails media for Swachh Bharat

Taking an indirect jibe at dynasty politics and one-man rule in political organisations, PM Narendra Modi on Saturday called for a debate on internal democracy in political parties, asserting that the growth of “true democratic spirit” within them is necessary for the country’s future.

PM Narendra ModiThough the Prime Minister made no reference to any rival party, but his comments come against the backdrop of reports that the Congress may elevate its vice president Rahul Gandhi as chief in place of his mother Sonia Gandhi.

The BJP has often accused the Congress of practising dynasty politics and juxtaposed that with the rise of its party workers to top echelons to project itself as a party with a difference. He also praised the media for its support to ‘Swachh Bharat’ project, saying it has spoken in one voice over the issue even if it might have been critical of the government over other matters.
