Abstract:
The purpose of this paper is to look into the role media can play in foreign policy and focuses on how media has been a tool for Prime Minister Narendra Modi's public diplomacy and foreign policy initiatives. The first part of the paper is a qualitative analysis of how media has served as a tool for PM Modi and the second part of the paper is a qualitative analysis of the Press reports during PM Modi's visits to foreign countries. The paper attempts to bring out how PM Modi has effectively used various media platforms, for his foreign policy initiatives and for gaining public support. However, the criticism of PM Modi's relation with the media leads to questions which could create different opinions on PM Modi and the media.
