Sahai disappointed at media for wrong presentation

Ranchi: Union Tourism Minister Subodh Kant Sahai on Friday expressed disappointment on a section of media for "playing up" his visit to an entertainment show in New Delhi on the evening of July 13, coinciding the Mumbai triple blast.

"Bharatiya Janata Party's national general secretary and former union minister Ashok Pradhan is a good friend of mine. I went there on his request that his daughter is making her debut in that show.

"But as soon as I got news of the Mumbai blast, I immediately rushed out with anxiety as my family stays Mumbai," Sahai said in a press release, issued here by his media in-charge Ravikant Kapoor.

Unfortunately, Sahai added, a section of the media presented it in a 'wrong way' as if he were insensitive to the blasts.

"They presented in a way that I did not worry about the blasts. They would not have showed it that way had their family members been there," the release said.
