In a recent telephone conversation, Prime Minister Narendra Modi engaged in a lengthy discussion with senior journalist Love Kumar Mishra. During the call, the Prime Minister expressed confidence that they would meet during his upcoming visit to Patna.
The conversation also touched upon the tragic October 2013 Gandhi Maidan bomb blast, where Prime Minister Modi recalled meeting a young man injured in the blast, who unfortunately succumbed to his injuries.
Mishra, a seasoned journalist with nearly 40 years of active service, currently resides in Patna’s Kankarbagh area, engaging in independent writing after a long and distinguished career.
The article sheds light on Mishra’s extensive experience, having spent a considerable amount of time in Ahmedabad and establishing a friendship with Modi during the 1990s when the Prime Minister was a propagator for the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).
Acknowledging their longstanding friendship, Mishra revealed that he received a call from the Prime Minister’s office around 10 PM on Friday. Despite having a history of friendly relations with Modi, Mishra was initially surprised by the unexpected call.
Prime Minister Modi, after exchanging pleasantries, initiated the conversation by stating, “The sun has risen in the west for me today. I’ve got your number. Now, let’s keep the conversation going. When I visit Patna next time, I will definitely meet you.”
According to Mishra, a brief discussion also took place on Saturday night, where the Prime Minister referred to their conversation the previous night. Mishra expressed his astonishment at having a candid conversation with his dear friend, akin to the legendary meeting between Lord Krishna and the impoverished Sudama.
