Barely a day goes by when the Aam Aadmi Party chief is not in news and most of the days it is for wrong reasons. Not that he cannot be in news for right reasons – he was when as 49-day Delhi chief minister his controversial decisions were reported by all sections of the media. But there again he occupied it more for wrong reasons.
Since the self proclaimed anarchist former chief minister already believes that media is sold out and we are getting paid by political parties, lets put the record straight.
There are people who get it right everytime. But then even Mr Perfectionist took his own sweet time to arrive where he is. As far as Arvind Kejriwal is concerned, the only thing that he can do or thinks he can do is make noise. It could be anything. But make noise. The media will grab it, he will get his audience and that’s how it has been working so far. And yet, he accuses the media of being biased.
Kejriwal knows how to use the media but the media does not know that it is being used to his advantage. He would stage dharna – media will cover it. He will travel by metro – media will cover it. He will travel by autorickshaw – media will cover it. He will say media is sold out – media will cover that too. See? Media will report anything that he does and yet he is claiming that media is biased.
We reported everything – when he was sick immediately after taking over as Delhi chief minister to his diarrhoea to his house hunting to his Aam Aadmi rides in his boxy car or metro. We even reported when he slept on the road or when he called Republic Day parade as waste of time or whatever. And yet he accuses us of being biased.
We reported every single question he asked either the Congress or the BJP and yet you call us biased. But are we really biased? If you were to analyse, the media gave you more time when you were in power and even now when you are staging your drama in different parts of the country. Gujarat and Mumbai visits being the latest example.
If the media was really sold out to any single party your Gujarat drama would not have been reported so extensively and on a daily basis. If we go by what you alleged, the visit should not have been covered at all. Right? But we did. And yet you call us biased. We reported what you said – in as many words. Are we at fault when we reported what you said or did? But we did the same when it came to Rahul Gandhi or Narendra Modi too.
We covered all your 49-days in office with a passion and devotion like a newly wed couple in their early days of marriage. But like in all marriages sooner or later, the wife eventually starts complaining… Aap to aise na the.
