Prime Minister Narendra Modi gave his "first interview to a private news channel" after securing one of the biggest mandate in Lok Sabha elections. And the lucky winner was... Times Now's Editor-In-Chief, Arnab Goswami (surprise!).
#PMSpeaksToArnab was the top trend on both Twitter and Facebook all throughout Monday and the 85-minute interview was aired twice at 6 pm and 9 pm, inviting a whole lot of hysterical reactions.
"Actually there are 3 Qs..if u allow me, but u'r speaking very well...please sir"Arnab wasn't this polite even while buying his 1st condom— Gabbbar (@GabbbarSingh) June 27, 2016
UNESCO has just voted the interview that Modiji gave to Arnab Goswami was the best interview ever given by any PM. Be proud. Pl share.— Salil Tripathi (@saliltripathi) June 27, 2016
The most shocking thing we got to know from #PMSpeaksToArnab is that Arnab Goswami can speak politely.— maithun-RBI Governor (@Being_Humor) June 27, 2016
Arnab also shockingly "agreed" to lot of the answers of Modi.
It's also a first for Arnab Goswami's wife to hear words like 'Absolutely', 'Agreed' in their married life. Thanks to Modi. #PMSpeaksToArnab— Debarati Majumder (@debarati_m) June 27, 2016
These amusing illustrations brilliantly summarize what lot of people felt on social media.

Of course, when anything has Modi even remotely involved in it, it has to feature Kejriwal...
After Arnab-Modi interview, Kejri must be thinking of sending Ashu back to media so that he can do an interview & make him look like hero— Ram Prasad (@ramprasad_c) June 28, 2016
There were some who were wondering whether Arnab should be officially called a bhakt...
There were also those who wondered if it was an interview or a date...ahem ahem...
ArGo blushing & praising NaMo's speech in the US, NaMo giggling — feel like I'm watching a date. Such shy, much coy, vaav #PMSpeaksToArnab— Deepanjana Pal (@dpanjana) June 27, 2016
