New Delhi: The Delhi Chief Minister’s Office has instructed the Directorate of Information and Publicity (DIP) to monitor content being broadcast by news channels.
The order directs DIP officials to monitor news channels from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. To start with, sources said, a team of three has been asked to keep tabs on news channels and send a daily report to the CMO.
They said a similar idea had in the past been mooted by the Sheila Dikshit government, but was dropped later.
“Besides recording everything going on air, the team has been directed to make a brief of all news items, especially those related to Delhi and the Delhi government,” said a senior official.
Over the last few days, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and party workers have accused a section of media of being anti-Aam Aadmi Party.
