Rock star PM

IN Media Watch Briefs | 18/03/2018
Prior to Narendra Modi's address at CNN TV 18's Rising India summit on Friday, the Group's Editor-in-Chief Rahul Joshi made such a flattering  introductory speech about the PM that even Mr Modi  looked a trifle embarrassed. He narrated how much the PM had achieved while leading from the front, and said the network's channels were there for him to use to put out his message.  He introduced him as India's rock star prime minister. Mr Modi then  went on to do a power point presentation about the achievements of his government and said there was "darkness" in the country before he took over the reins of power in 2014.
