NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi lauded media for propagating his pet scheme to clean India - Swachh Bharat Abhiyan – saying it has propagated the idea which is only set to grow in the coming days.

Modi met a large gathering of journalists at the party headquarters, first time after becoming the Prime Minister. BJP had arranged Diwali Milan programme to celebrate party’s win in Haryana and Maharashtra.

Speaking to journalists, most of them who had covered the party over the years, Modi reminisced the good old days when he had time to interact with the newsmen.

“Media persons and I had a relationship which goes long back. I used to put up chairs for you. Those were different days when we interacted freely. That relationship continued to Gujarat, when you used to come there,” Modi said referring to his days as party general secretary and interaction with reporters on the BJP beat.  "Hopefully, I will find a way to interact with media more often as personal meetings throw up more ideas, and I get information."
