New Delhi: The Doordarshan journalist who conducted Narendra Modi interview, which has become a subject of controversy, has tweeted that the entire version of the interview should have been telecast.

He, however, added that he is not the final authority.

In a post on twitter on April 30, Ashok Shrivastav said, "the original interview was 56 minutes but I got half an hour chunk. (so) We telecast 34 minutes."
He posted more tweets on the same day adding that he felt that full version should have been telecast. "Professionally I feel we should have telecast full versions."

In another post he said the important portion of the interview should not have been edited.
"And professionally I also feel that portion is important shouldn`t edited. I am not final authority," he said.

Shrivastav had interviewed Modi for Doordarshan. The interview became a subject of controversy as the channel did not show portions in which the BJP leader had spoken about Priyanka Gandhi and Ahmed Patel.
