Bhubaneswar, Oct 16: BJD MP from Keonjhar, Chandrani Murmu today accused Odia channel OTV of trying to shield one of its reporters who was questioned by the police on Thursday for his alleged involvement in circulation of a morphed obscene video of the MP.
The MP said that when the police questioned the reporter of the channel, OTV and their owners are trying to save him by claiming that this is an attack on its journalists by the Government.
“ The owners of the channel are friends with powerful people in Delhi and are using their connections to run media stories that the questioning of the reporter was an attack on media and journalism,” said Murmu.
The MP further demanded justice for herself. “If today the youngest MP of India who is also a tribal lady is crying before the public to get justice because channel like OTV is using its media connections to divert my story, you can then well imagine the fate of women in India,” she added.
