From where does Vinoda get the idea that Modi hates the English media? From the fact that Modi does not give interviews or takes the media on a free junket on his plane whenever he goes abroad? Maybe Vinod is missing out on all the free Scotch that is galloned off during these trips abroad to the mediamen on the plane. He is too used to free loading and so he has his pet gripe. If as Vinod claims that Modi has an elephant's memory and nurses grudges, then how come Sonia Gandhi and Vadra has not been put in the dock, when so much of evidence is lying all over? This is a bogus statement that 'Modiâ€™s likes and dislikes are his own business, but when his prejudices become the basis on which his government is run, the country is in trouble.'. Now, which person on earth or a PM/ President does not have a grudge and that plays a role in his or her interaction. This is like cranking in ridiculous arguments, just to fill column space and act cute and knowledgeable. Now, if newspaper or current affairs television drown with in gushing prose eulogising every aspect of the PM â€” from his wardrobe to his frugal diet to his skill in presenting Indiaâ€™s case to foreign audiences across the globe, is it the fault of Modi. I thought he does not interact with the media. So, obviously Modi has not told the media to talk about his choice of underwears or has Modi? And anyway, it appears the since Vinod does not have easy access to Modi as he has and had with Sonia Gandhi, is he feeling left out that he, the great Vinod the mediaman is not being able to dictate the fate of the nation as he could in UPA times? If the media has to go to US 'at great personal expense' to cover Modi, then they were only doing their job and what is so disastrous in spending money to furthering your work? I presume Vinod wants all things free since it has become the alter ego of the media men. I love the way free loading Vinod Mehta has been put in his place and that of an inconsequential non entity. He has good reasons to crib.
