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.

Reporters' Diary: Angrily yours

As the probe began, the SP chose to turn a blind eye to the development and did not issue a single statement in support of Mr Khan.

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.

The ones that are available are in townships that are developing on the outskirts of the state capital and are not ready to move in.
