Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s second interview to an Indian television news channel after assuming office in 2014 will be telecast today. Modi will speak to  Network 18’s Group Editor Rahul Joshi. This comes after his first interview to Times Now’s Arnab Goswami, who was widely criticised for conducting a ‘soft’ interview with Modi and not asking the prime minister any ‘tough questions.’

According to the promos put out by the news channel, Modi will purportedly speak on a wide range of issues in this 90-minute interview. “Spoke about a wide range of issues in an interview with , which will be aired tonight at 9 PM,” the PM tweeted.

In the teaser, PM Modi can be seen speaking about the challenges to India’s economy, Uttar Pradesh elections which are due next year, and Dalit vote bank politics.

PM Modi will also be seen speaking about his relationship with the media. “Whatever I am today, media played a big role in that,” he is heard saying in the interview promo. This seems to be his first acknowledgement of media’s role in his political life. PM Modi has shared a rather uneasy relationship with the national media ever since he became chief minister of Gujarat in 2001. He has often accused the media of running a campaign against him.

The interview will be telecast at 9 pm this evening.
