Congress General Secretary KC Venugopal made the announcement at a press briefing following the meeting.

“The coordination committee authorised the sub-group on media to decide upon the names of the anchors on whose shows none of the INDIA parties will send their representatives,” he said.

AAP leader Raghav Chadha on Wednesday said,”All alliance parties will participate in the public meeting (to be held in Bhopal) and raise issues of price rise, unemployment and corruption. There was also consensus over the caste census. We have also authorised our media committee to release the list of TV anchors on whose shows leaders of our alliance parties won’t participate,”

The first meeting of the coordination committee was held at the residence of NCP supremo Sharad Pawar in New Delhi.

The boycotted channels will be “observed over the next few months” and the ban will be withdrawn “if there is improvement”, the committee member told media. “In case of no improvement, measures like ban on advertisements for these channels can also be adopted.”
