“I want this government to be criticized” : PM Modi in London

Speaking about criticisms, PM Modi said that democracy cannot be successful without constructive criticism.

Speaking from London’s Central Hall Westminster, Prime Minister Modi said that when he was taking the oath, he had mentioned that he has a lack of experience so he might make mistakes.
Prasoon Joshi, the famous Indian writer and Censor Board chief interviewed Prime Minister Narendra Modi during the program ‘Bharat ki Baat sabke saath’. Prime Minister Narendra Modi openly expressed his opinion on several issues in this interview. Speaking on the Kathua and Unnao rape case, PM Modi said that a rape is a rape and it should not be politicized.
Prasoon Joshi further asked the Prime Minister about his life journey. He asked, “Your life started from a railway station, and you have come to the Royal Palace for this event. What do you have to say about your life’s journey?”
Responding to this, the Prime Minister said that his life at the railway station taught him a lot. “It was about my personal struggles. When you said the Royal Palace, it is not about me, but about 125 crore people of India,” answered PM Modi.
He further said that the person in the railway station was Narendra Modi. The person in the Royal Palace in London is a servant of 125 million Indians.” The railway station is the golden page of my life which taught me to live and fight,” said Modi.
The Prime Minister said that his intention is not to get a name in history. He also asserted that he is just one of my hundred and fifty million people.
Speaking about criticisms, PM Modi said that democracy cannot be successful without constructive criticism. “I want this government to be criticized. Criticism strengthens democracy. I have no problem with criticism,” PM Modi responded. However, he said that it is important to research and find the right facts to criticize. “Sadly, this is not happening,” PM Modi quipped.
Prashant Dixit asked the Prime Minister – the work (from your side) is being done, but still there is some degree of impatience. What do you feel about this?
The Prime Minister responded saying that impatience is not a bad thing. Elaborating his point, he said, “If a person has a bicycle, then a person desires a scooter. If a person has a scooter, then a person is aspiring for the car. India is becoming increasingly aspiring. The moment the feeling of satisfaction arises, life does not progress further. Every age gives momentum to something new in every era.”
He further said that it is important to be emotive.” “I am glad that today there is a sense of hope and resolution in the minds of 500 million people and people have expectations from me,” said PM Modi. He said that people expect from him because they believe that he will definitely show them the result. He added, “It is my energy to be impatient and when you go for the resolution of ‘Sarvajan Hitay, Sarvajan Sukhay’ then there is no talk of despair.
When Prasoon Joshi asked the Prime Minister that you are working hard, but can you change the country alone, Prime Minister Modi said that I am working should not be the issue. “If I do not work then it would be a subject,” he said. He further said that I am like ordinary citizens, my capital is hard work, credentials and love of hundreds and a half million people.
He said, “I had assured the countrymen that I can make mistakes but I will not do any work with the wrong intention.”
“My trust in the power of hundred and fifty million people and the changes that are happening in the country today are the results of this,” said PM Modi.
