Industrialists and Modi

pm’s meetings remain top secret

sept14-img-3IT is not easy to understand Narendra Modi’s style of functioning. He communicates to the media only what he wishes to share and nothing more. There are only a few who can sense what is happening in South Block. It has been observed in the last 100 days that the media has reported only whatever he wanted to deliver and prove to the public, while other developments have surfaced as rumours, creating a furore in the government set up. India Inc was also watching, though the top industrial houses were in touch with Modi much before the elections were announced. But, whenever a new Prime Minister takes over the country’s reins, the top industrialists make courtesy calls. This is a routine affair for the last 67 years. Earlier, it was observed that photographs of the meetings used to be released either by the Prime Minister’s Office or by the public relations agency of the industrial house. Modi did not follow the formula. Even the top functionaries within the government are not aware that the Prime Minister has met most of the key industrialists on a one-on-one basis. Neither the PMO nor the industrialists mentioned these meetings. Clearly, it’s no longer show time.
