Bharti apologizes for Modi-paid media remark
Delhi Law Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Somnath Bharti on Saturday apologized for alleging that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)'s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi pays the media for defaming him.
"I apologize if my statement hurt anyone. I did not mean what was projected. I respect the media. Media is a crucial pillar in our democracy," said Bharti.
"I withdraw my comment," he added.
