New Delhi, Nov 15: Sonipat District Administration on Wednesday issued a notification asking media personnel to maintain distance from Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar.

The decision has been taken in a view of security reasons.

The notification stated that microphones and cameras too close to Khattar are a security risk and that security personnel find it difficult to safeguard the Haryana CM each time members of the media begin interacting/questioning him.

The  document further asserted that journalists should commence with group addresses rather than one-on-one interactions. Furthermore, the order states that journalists should not take byte more than once.

The letter ends with a warning that media persons will themselves be responsible in case of any negligence.

Reacting to this bizarre move, Senior Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala called it a‘Tuglaki Farmaan’.

Surjewala said in tweet ” Khattar government’s new Tuglaki Farmaan and asked  if journalists and photojournalists give electric shock to the government that they are ordered to stay away.
