UP CM Yogi Aditynath’s visit to a hospital in Moradabad sparked controversy after reports emerged that a group of journalists were locked up in an emergency ward and weren’t allowed to cover his visit.


According to a report by News18, the media persons who had come to cover Yogi Adityanath’s visit were locked inside the room for around 20-25 minutes. And the door was unlocked only after the departure of the Chief Minister.

Reports suggest that the District Magistrate didn’t respond to the journalists’ plea did not give any reason for restricting the media.


Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi slammed the Adityanath government for not responding to public’s questions. 

However, Moradabad DM Rakesh Kumar denied these allegations and said that no such incident occurred.
