Media has so far not been part of any foreign tour of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Unperturbed by the fact that this has not gone down well with it, Modi reportedly plans to opt a new strategy of taking regional media along in foreign visits.
If some highly placed sources are to be believed; PM Modi has realised that resourced crunched regional media are unable to afford the expenses incurred on PM’s foreign coverage.
On the other hand the buzz has been that through regional media Modi now wants to reach out to ‘Rurban & Rural India’ where he had not been able to reach so far. Mighty Modi knows well that the stronghold of the mainstream media is in ‘Urban India’ which is already with Modi as BJP’s main bastion.
Reportedly, a note in this regard (taking regional media on his foreign tours) has been sent to the concerned authority for necessary action.
