Reporters' Diary: Keeping media at bay

UP Chief minister Yogi Adityanath also does not take questions in his press conferences that are, in any case, few and far in-between.

Simmering with rage, Mr Khan now stays away from party functions, including iftar, does not communicate with party leaders and has stopped meeting Mulayam Singh Yadav.

The spokespersons have conveniently forgotten the murky bungalow episode and are not even bothering to ask the Yogi Adityanath government to produce the inventory about items that were claimed to have gone missing when Mr Yadav vacated the bungalow.

Reporters' Diary: Happy holidays!

A number of social organisations also made the similar demand.
