“PM @narendramodi visited the Press Trust of India headquarters in New Delhi earlier today in his first visit to any newsroom since he assumed office in 2014, and saw from close quarters the news agency’s newly-launched video service,” wrote PTI on X.

“During his one-hour stay, PM Modi interacted with the entire PTI staff in batches, and also spent time with the senior editorial and executive staff, discussing in detail the challenges and opportunities before the media,” added PTI.

 

In fact, PTI, traditionally an agency of text and pictures, started its video service in February this year. PM Modi had reached there to see this service closely. This might be the first time after becoming Prime Minister that Narendra Modi has met so many journalists simultaneously. However, even in this meeting, journalists were not allowed to ask questions.
