Media should understand its responsibilities: BJP

New Delhi: The BJP today took exception to a media report quoting Prime Minister Narendra Modi as having told a party gathering yesterday that “nationalists are with us” and “let us reach out to Dalits and backwards”.

In a statement, the party said that there were forces which were constantly trying to break the social fabric of the country by carrying out a disinformation campaign against the pro-development and pro-people Modi government.

Describing the media as fourth pillar of democracy, the statement said it should understand its responsibilities.
