Modi addresses first press conference in five years, takes no questions

Though Modi didn't take the questions, he intently listened to questions, including the one on Congress chief Rahul Gandhi's reported remarks that he wanted to "destroy the image of Modi".

Narendra Modi, Amit Shah press conference in Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president, accompanied by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, addressed the media at the party headquarters in New Delhi, on Friday just six days before the results for the Lok Sabha elections 2019 are scheduled to be released on May 23, 2019.

Before Narendra Modi gave a speech, Amit Shah addressed reporters and said that BJP alone will cross 300 seats in this election.

Shah's only reference to present and future allies was that when the BJP formed the government after 23 May, the current allies would be part of the government and "our doors will be open to those who support our principles and policies".

While the "Modi Lies" website's launch date is unknown, its Facebook page describes itself as "a repository of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's lies and false claims, right from the time he assumed power in May 2014". "We fielded her as a candidate as part of our silent protest (satyagraha) against those who attempted to define Hindus as terrorists" he said. "Her statements have not only brought disgrace but also hurt the sentiments of people in India & across the world", Congress said in a statement posted on Facebook.

"In the past five years, Modi was seen going to every place across the world, but he never bothered to meet farmers of his own country", Gandhi said on Thursday.

Having been criticised for not addressing a single press conference in his five-year tenure, Friday's interaction came as a surprise to many.

Rejecting allegations levelled by Congress president Rahul Gandhi against the BJP on Rafale fighter jet deal, Shah said that Rahul could have proved it. It was held in a positive spirit.

The PM, to the very first question addressed to him, said: "I am a disciplined soldier, party president is everything for me".
