#HangoutWithArvind: Government willing to support ‘honest and independent’ media

During an interactive Google Hangout session with his party volunteers on Sunday, Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal, said that his government is willing to help the journalists who want to start their own ‘honest and independent’ news channel.

Addressing the Aam Aadmi Party volunteers, Kejriwal said, “Media shows us (as being) very aggressive.”

“We don’t want to start any media (of our own). But, I think that several good people in media are also sad over the goings on. If some big people working in media start their own new channel or a newspaper in a joint effort, the Delhi government is ready to help them. We want an honest and independent media, which show news, not false news…If anyone wants to start a good media, Delhi government would help them,” he added.

During the hangout session, Kejriwal also asked the party volunteers to compare his government’s performance to that of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Kejriwal also claimed that the Delhi government’s popularity has been on the rise.

Kejriwal stated, “24 May will be 100 days of the AAP government in Delhi and 26 May will be 365 days of the Modi government. I feel it will be interesting if someone did a comparison of the work that has been done.”

“The party’s popularity is increasing. Every 15 days, I do an internal survey on the party. Our popularity is increasing. The survey shows that if elections were held today, 72% of the people in Delhi would have voted for us. This was around 50% in February,” he said.
