Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal unleashed a scathing attack on media on Monday saying the journalists are taking bribe to finish off his Aam Admi Party.

Accusing the media of trying to tarnish the party's image, Kejriwal also called for a public trial of the media groups.

A very large section of the media has accepted 'supari' for finishing off AAP. There can be a public "trial," he said.

Kejriwal made this sharp remarks while defending Law Minister Jitender Singh Tomar who has been in the middle of a fake degree row.

A university had claimed in a court that Tomar faked his degree.

"The media's aim is not to know the truth but to get Tomar sacked. I am not Tomar's relative or friend. I had sought an explanation from Tomar on the controversy. He gave a satisfactory answer and said he wasn't at fault as his degree is genuine," NDTV report quoted Kejriwal as saying.
