The Prime Minister shed light on his perspectives regarding the absence of a global news channel originating from India. He remarked, "If more global TV channels like AajTak are created, I would be the first one to applaud. It's surprising that even after 75 years of independence, not one global news channel from our country has emerged."

Making a special mention about the India Today group, the Prime Minister said, "I expect that AajTak and its editors are able to study and showcase the real extent of elections." The group is known for its in-depth interviews with senior politicians, celebrities, and influential figures.
