NARENDRA Modi is the first Prime Minister of India who likes gadgets and digital media. Whenever he is free, he likes to be updated with the latest happenings of the world. But old habits die hard. He still regularly reads the newspapers (hard copy) in the morning at 5.30 a.m. He used to read the local newspapers in Ahmedabad when he was serving as Chief Minister of Gujarat, along with a glimpse at some newspapers published from New Delhi. He had especially made an arrangement from New Delhi to have the newspapers parcelled to him by the first flight.
Nowadays, the Prime Minister’s Office has made arrangements to get the Gujarat newspapers on the first flight from Ahmedabad. The PMO has also deputed staff especially to collect the morning newspapers from Connaught Place every day at 5 in the morning. No doubt, staying abreast of the news is essential.
