Rohtak : Former Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal alleged that an industrialist was attempting to control some newspapers and TV channels. He claimed that a section of media has been told to cover Narendra Modi and Rahul Gandhi and "defame" him. Accusing the media of "denigrating" him by saying that he resigned as he could not govern, Mr Kejriwal said he had stepped down as he did not want to compromise on principles after the Congress and BJP prevented the introduction of Jan Lokpal Bill in the Delhi Assembly.

"Certain newspapers and TV channels are saying that I quit because I wanted to run away from governance. I am willing to give my life but I will not compromise on principles. I have showed that I have no love for the chair," he said.

 

Mr Kejriwal claimed that an editor in chief of a TV channel had met him on Saturday and told him that he had resigned as he was allegedly under pressure to only show Mr Modi and Mr Gandhi, which went against his conscience. He asked AAP workers and commoners to call up media offices if they felt that there was a hidden agenda behind a particular news item.
