Yogi Adityanath faces first big test today.” “Litmus test for Yogi Adityanath-led BJP govt as counting of UP Civic Polls underway.” Media appears to have gone berserk with continuous coverage on UP Civic Polls.
Switch on any news channels today, such headlines would give you impression as if today is the result day of General Loksabha Election 2017 held in Uttar Pradesh. No news about Cycline Ockhi in Kerala and Tamilnadu. Even darling of media, Rahul Gandhi shouting, “I am Hindu” disappeared from news channels today.
“BJP is leading in 13 seats out of 16,” is not a news. What is news is that 3 non BJP candidates out of 16 are leading. And the three non BJP leading candidates (out of 16) have given big setback to Chief Minister, Yogi Aditya Nath. Media don’t breathe until they find fault with Yogi and Modi. Indeed, some reporters are literally panting when they report that how 3 non BJP candidates are leading.
UP Chief Minister, Yogi Adityanath is minutely scrutinised by the media the same way Narendra Damodardas Modi has been scanned and analysed since years. Media is targeting Yogi with same weapons from their arsenal with which they have been attacking Modi. What Media forgot that every weapon aimed at Modi backfired. Media’s desperation to defame Yogi is making Yogi Modi 2.0 or more fierce version of Modi.
