PM Modi meets mediapersons at Diwali Milan function, stresses on equality

Prime Minister Narendra Modi organized a much-delayed Diwali Milan function for mediapersons Saturday. He spoke of non-discrimination and equality during the function.

 “Celebrating a festival gives direction as well as strength to the society. I can’t imagine the number of stories that can be churned if we sit to analyse the impact of our festivals in our society. If you take the Kumbh Mela for example, a number of people come, it is like a nation has come, and assembles by the Ganga every day — that is (how many) people gather at the event. This signifies strength. The festival of lights (Deep Parva) is also a part of it. There is no discrimination in it. It also strengthens the value of equality,” he said.

After a brief speech, Modi went on to greet mediapersons individually. Soon enough, a journalist took out her camera and tried to take a selfie with the PM, who happily indulged. Modi posed for many selfies as the event progressed.

The event was also attended by BJP President Amit Shah, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and other party leaders.
