The ruling Aam Admi Party and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal are sacrosanct. So, media must not make any commentary on their wrongful action. Kejriwal’s law minister Jitendra Singh Tomar has not submitted his forged law degree because he has given explanation in a letter to him that no wrong has been committed in acquiring the law degree. Now it is final. This is Kejriwal’s quality that whenever any charge is leveled against his minister or government, he makes the guilty his own judge to pronounce judgement. Now it is for the people to believe how much truth is in it. It is nothing but his farce. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal became satisfied with Tomer’s explanation and took no time in blaming media for raising the controversy out of proportion. He says that it reflects that media has taken supari to finish off AAP. If he has his way, the death of farmer Gajendra Singh at APP rally at Jantar Mantar in Delhi also was not because of inciting by his party workers and leaders but of some other causes. If he is to believe, APP leaders were delivering speeches from the dais at that time and they were completely oblivious of what was going on the tree on which the farmer Gajendra had climbed for committing suicide. So he thinks that media must not raise and give coverage widely only because the incident had taken place at APP rally. If media had done his way, it would have been praised by him. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal wants media to write only those things which please him. When he along with his party leaders was agitating and getting wide media coverage and he had become its darling, he had all praise for it. But when he came to power and media started to make critical commentary on the functioning of his government, it has become his eye-sore. Delhi CM Kejriwal must know that it is media that made him leader of the stature of what he is today. Media is the fourth-estate. It is not dependent on the government and its prime duty is to become the eye and ear of the people. It is only exposing Delhi AAP government’s malfunctioning before the Delhiites as well as the nation. If ruling AAP continued to function as authoritatively as it is doing, it will finish off itself and media need not take supari to do it. It is Kejriwal desperation that he has charged a large section of media to conspire to finish AAP off. Kejriwal has been of the approach of his way or my way. Whatever he says is correct and whatever is said against him is incorrect. His attitude is like British monarch about whom it is told that king can do no wrong. So according to him, he can do no wrong. Media will continue to make positive commentary on the functioning of the government in Delhi. Whenever the government does well, the media highlights it. What does Kejriwal want media to do? Should it not expose his government to public scrutiny by presenting the facts before them? If media report is wrong about the forged law degree of law minister, why does Kejriwal government not set up an enquiry committee to look into it? Kejriwal’s blame on media for conspiring to finish off APP has born out of his desperation.
