Refrain from making 'irresponsible' statements, PM Modi tells BJP MPs, MLAs

But have we ever thought that we provide "masala" to media through our own mistakes? The moment we see a camera, we jump to make a statement as if we are great social scientists or experts. and then these ill-informed statements are used by media.

Last week, Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb became the toast of social media after he claimed that Internet was not gifted to mankind by the U.S. and it was invented lakhs of years ago and the knowledge of satellite communication existed during the period of Mahabharata.

Certain things are hard, but needs to be told, said Modi in a almost 2-minute message about speaking to media.

He also urged the party leaders to utilize the full potential of social media in connecting with the people.

The PM claimed around the need to focus on energy advancement and highlighted the power of Mudra Yojna in supplying financial support to create an inclusive and sustainable entrepreneurial tradition from the country.

During the hour-long interaction, the Prime Minister also answered questions on various issues including skilling the youth, rural development and farmers' welfare.

A BJP release quoted Modi as saying that the party has managed to win over support of the rural masses as he also made a reference to the party's win in local polls in Jharkhand.

"Sometimes our workers blame the media". In conferences we get to know new procedures and medicines. "Engaging in small talk and maligning the entire medical fraternity in India with a broad brush on foreign soil was certainly not expected out of the prime minister of the country.IMA expresses its displeasure on your unfortunate remarks", IMA Secretary-General Dr RN Tandon said to ANI.

Mr Modi, who is now visiting the United Kingdom, had claimed on Wednesday that before making the news of the "surgical strikes" public, India had repeatedly attempted to contact Pakistan government to inform them about the operation.

Speaking to news agency ANI, Gangwar said, "Such incidents [rape cases] are unfortunate but can not be stopped. Government is taking effective steps.Whatever is necessary will be done", he said on Saturday at Bareilly, Uttar Pradesh.

Santosh Gangwar is the Minister of State for Finance.

Earlier this week, reacting to "Patgate", Tamil Nadu BJP leader S V Shekher said that one can't become reporter without sleeping with big shots. Citing an example, the PM said following the Lok Sabha elections, there were 8-10 MPs who used to make offhand remarks, but after he spoke to them, they have stopped making controversial statements.
