Days after forming government in the national capital, the maiden press conference of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) was left in total chaos on Monday.

Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia left the press conference after journalists wanted party’s clarification over media’s entry inside the secretariat.

According to media reports, journalists were furious over the complete ban of media inside the Secretariat premises.

As media persons protested and demanded an answer to the ban of even accredited journalists inside the Delhi government office, Sisodia, without giving any answer, just walked-off from the press conference.

Meanwhile, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said, “Very unfortunate showdown between media and AAP government.”

In 2013, the AAP government had restricted media entry inside the secretariat. Mediapersons were not allowed to visit the rooms of ministers and other offices inside the Delhi Secretariat.
