People on ground have better understanding than 'political pundits': PM Modi

After offering prayers at the Kashi Vishwanath temple, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers in Varanasi. PM said, "Political pundits/experts were relevant for the 20th century but not the 21st century." "Even the poor person on the ground has a better understanding than those with 50 pages of biodata, so many degrees and research papers and what not under their name, but Bharatiya Janata Party workers in Varanasi have better understanding than them," he added further.
