Cornered journalists

August 02 2015

“Controlling” and “reining in” are two words that the country’s all-powerful person likes the most. And now after having used this on the party people, ministers and Parliamentarians, he wants to try it out on journalists. It is worth remembering that this is the same media that had crossed all limits when it came to singing the Modi-song during the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. Today, Modi government’s attitude on the same media has hardened, somewhat. Sources reveal that the home ministry has sent a recommendation to the information and broadcasting ministry, saying that journalists recognized by the Press Information Bureau (PIB) will have to get their PIB recognition renewed every year. Arun Jaitley, who is liked by the press, is not agreeable to this idea by his own government. Thus, he is holding on to the file for now, but how long can one do that?
