The recent appearance of Akhilesh Yadav, Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, on India TV’s show ‘Aap Ki Adalat’ hosted by its Editor-in-Chief Rajat Sharma is getting attention for his candid speak. The young minister was quite uninhibited while commenting on his relationship with media and the upcoming elections.
Speaking about his equation with media, Yadav said, “I am known because of the media. While the media often portrays incidents in a big way I feel we should be careful and discreet while dealing with the media.”
When asked to comment on the fact that most TV Networks in India are based in the Noida District of his state, Yadav said, “I have never allotted the land to these media houses, had it been the case my relationship with media would have been completely different.”
