Cong's media agenda against free press, warns Jaitley


A'hostile media' was clearly one of those reason why credited by most Congress leaders privately because of the 2014 survey debacle.  At the summit of Anna Hazare motion whose obtaining ending was Congress, '' the afterward Congress Lok Sabha MP in Mandsaur Meenakshi Natarajan, a former aide in Rahul Gandhi experienced suggested to introduce a private member's invoice"The Printing and Digital Media requirements and Legislation monthly bill, 2012", that experienced stricter provisions such as punishment and fine for those press businesses.

Certainly the allusion was on the tenure of Modi administration when Congress spoke about"immediate past".
