Mamata slams media for spreading distorted information

kolkata Updated: Sep 17, 2012 22:15 IST

A day before the crucial meeting of the Trinamool Congress parliamentary party tomorrow which is scheduled to take a call on the hiked diesel price, cap on subsidized LPG and FDI in multi-brand retail, party chief Mamata Banerjee today hit out at a section of the media for disseminating "distorted and concocted information".

"It is utterly unfortunate to see that two three negligent channels are disseminating distorted and concocted information at the behest of certain business interests," Banerjee said on her Facebook page.

"This is totally unwarranted in a democratic set-up," she said and added, "I condemn this mis-representation of information from such spineless and negligent section of channels".

Her comment came in the backdrop of reports that the Trinamool Congress was conducting back-channel negotiations with the Congress to diffuse the situation arising out of TMC's ultimatum to the UPA government to roll back the decisions on diesel price, LPG and the FDI in retail.
