Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi is controlling a large chunk of media, while reacting to a tweet that said no mainstream media has covered Rana Ayyub’s book “Gujarat Files: Anatomy of a Cover Up”.

“What does that tell us? “It tells us that Modi controls a large chunk of media, especially the owners,” Kejriwal wrote on Twitter.

Journalist Rana Ayyub met bureaucrats and top officials in Gujarat who held key positions in the state between 2001 and 2010 and brings to light the involvement of the state and its officials during the Gujarat riots in her recent book, “Gujarat Files: Anatomy of a Cover Up”.

The book investigates the alleged fake encounters that happened under Modi’s watch as then chief minister of Gujarat between 2001 and 2010.
