PATNA: BJP President Amit Shah today asked people to be "cautious" about the news dished out by a private Hindi TV channel apparently helping Aam Admi Party to win the Delhi assembly elections.             

"The TV channel is having an agenda to launch Aam Admi Party and help Kejriwal win election in Delhi...there cannot be a bigger example of yellow journalism than this," Shah told reporters here.           

The BJP chief's statement came in response to a question by the channel reporter as to why the party has "borrowed" Kiran Bedi for Delhi election.      

When some media persons mostly of TV channels asked angrily as how he could decide which channel public should watch, Shah said "I have expressed my opinion and its on the people whether to take it or not."            

He defended inclusion of Kiran Bedi into the party and said BJP had always been in favour of inclusion of eminent personalities from different walks of lives into its fold.  

On a question about taking cricketer Saurav Ganguly in the party to take on Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in West Bengal, Shah said it was not yet decided.             

"Party leader Sidharth Nath Singh has already clarified from party side on its approach on Saurav Ganguly," he said.
