New Delhi: Sharpening attack on media a frustrated Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has accused the media of accepting a supari or contract to finish off his Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), in his sharpest attack yet on journalists. The Chief Minister also called for a “public trial” of media groups.
Kejriwal made the remarks while defending his Law Minister Jitender Singh Tomar, who is accused of faking his law degree, during the launch of a website.
“There is a need for a public trial of the media to expose their bias,” the Chief Minister said, alleging that “a large section of the media” had tried everything to tarnish his party’s image.
AAP had its back to the wall in the past few weeks over the alleged suicide of a farmer at its rally and a university’s claim in court that the law minister faked his degree.
