AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal has been caught in a controversial situation just a day after he accused media of taking money from big business houses for arranging publicity to the BJP PM candidate, Narendra Modi.
A YouTube video showing him in this embarrassing situation went viral on social networking sites on Monday. The video shows that Kejriwal issued certain directions to the reporter to highlight certain aspect of his discussion soon after the interview was over.
"Please play it up more," he tells the TV anchor referring to his opinion on the Indian corporate during the interview.
The interviewer promptly agrees to the request. The interview replies, "Yes, we will play it up. The Bhagat Singh (comment) is good. We will get a lot of reaction to this."
Earlier Kejriwal had stated that the media took money from industrialists Ambani and Adani to give publicity to the BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.
"Media has been claiming for the last one year that Modi has carried out a lot of development work. Media is lying because they have taken money from Ambani and Adani," Kejriwal had said. (With inputs from agencies)
