Don’t blame media, your ‘masala’ hurts party image, PM Modi tells BJP motormouths

In a strongly worded statement to BJP lawmakers who resort to foot-in-mouth remarks, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday asked them to avoid making controversial statements before the media, which, in turn, boomerangs to hurt the party as well as one’s image. While interacting with BJP MPs and MLAs through the NaMo App, Modi said party members should not always blame the media for blowing things out of proportion since it was them who provide “masala” to the press.
