"You (the media) show us (the politicians) what we need to focus on. There are so many different types of media nowadays. Coming here, among you brings back memories when I was working in the Party HQ and spent time with many of you. Nowadays, though, you complain that we do not get to sit and chat like we used to. The times have changed and that has created a crunch for us to interact with each other," says PM Narendra Modi.
