Modern media is not Aam Aadmi Party. Delhi’s chief minister Arvind Kejriwal should learn this and understand the difference.

For raising voices, Kejriwal managed to throw out his party leaders like Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav. But Kejriwal cannot act in such a manner with the modern media.

The modern media is not just newspapers or TV channels. The internet or the web is leading the news flow and they cannot be stifled by a state chief minister, who incidentally happens to be product of the media.

Kejriwal had said on Sunday that he doesn’t care about media and that if election is held in the national capital today; the AAP would poll 72 per cent votes despite media writings.

 “Whatever comes in the media, but I conduct a survey every 15 days of my party in Delhi. If elections are conducted in the national capital, then we are likely to get 72 per cent votes. After the elections, our condition has improved a lot,” Kejriwal said, while interacting with party volunteers through Google Hangout.

“Media keep showing us in negative light but don’t worry about that as people of Delhi is happy with. Despite seeing media, people gave us 67 seats.”

On Saturday, Kejriwal had urged officials working with the Delhi Government to lodge complaints against 'defamatory' news items which 'damage the reputation' of the government with the principal secretary of the home ministry.

Kejriwal said the AAP government is going to complete 100 days in its office on May 24 while the Narendra Modi government will complete its one year on May 26.

It is a fact, and then Kejriwal switches to fiction. He sought to compare the performance of his 100 days old government with that of one year of Narendra Modi government. Kejriwal seems to forget that he is a chief minister of a city-state and Modi is heading India the nation.

“I think there should be comparison of work between Modi’s and our governments. There should be comparison as to what we have done in the last 100 days and what Modi’s government has done in the last one year,” Kejriwal said.
