Chants of 'Modi, Modi' filled Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium as Prime Minister Narendra Modi walked in to take questions from India TV Editor-in-Chief and Chairman Rajat Sharma.
From politics to personal life, the Prime Minister took on a bunch of questions at the mega event, organised and hosted by India TV.
This one-of-a-kind interview took place in the presence of thousands of spectators at the JLN Stadium that resonated with cheers for PM Modi. The show will be telecast at 8 PM on Saturday, May 4.
In the show, the Prime Minister spoke about a wide range of issues concerning the country. From hard-hitting responses to Pakistan including India's successful surgical strike and airstrike against terror camps to tongue-in-cheek replies to questions on Congress chief Rahul Gandhi, PM Modi was seen in a never-seen-before avatar.
PM Modi also responded to a question about Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) chief Masood Azhar's designation as a global terrorist in the United Nations sanctions list after China lifted its technical hold. He tore into the Opposition for raising questions over the recent development and mockingly asked if the Election Commission should have issued the international body a notice before taking the step?
Taking a cheeky jibe on Rahul Gandhi, Modi said he spent an entire day inside Parliament as he was told an "earthquake" was imminent. "It never came," he said. The Prime Minister added that while previous governments wrote 'love letters' to Pakistan, PM Modi sent warplanes.
PM Modi said Islamabad readied deployment at the border after surgical strike. "We, however, said 'Bajrang Bali ki jai' and conducted airstrike thereafter," he added.
