The Director General of Medical Education in Uttar Pradesh wrote a letter to the state's 24 medical colleges, saying the PPE they were given is so substandard they should not use them. This letter leaked to the media. Guess what the great democrat Yogi Adityanath did next?
Great democrat Yogi has asked the UP Police's elite STF to investigate how the letter leaked to media. timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/lucknow/u…
The STF usually chases organised crime. This is apt, because journalism for Yogi is organised crime. And commentary is terrorism.
If there was a state-wise ranking of press freedom in India, I bet UP would emerge as the second worst, the worst being Jammu & Kashmir. The harassment of journalists, FIRs against them have become so rampant that the media in UP is afraid to do any story that may displease Yogi.
The chilling effect has begin showing in the UP media, which reads like an unending Yogi press release. There isn't much difference between the media of such a state and that of a dictatorship like China. That's where we are headed.
