Chief Electoral Officer Praveen Kumar on Saturday said his office had received a complaint regarding ‘paid news’ and that the media committee would discuss it in the meeting scheduled for April 1.

Addressing a press conference at the Secretariat, the CEO said the media committee was headed by him and comprised representatives from Doordarshan, All India Radio and an independent journalist.

Asked to name the media involved in the complaint, the CEO said, “The complaint was lodged by an individual belonging to a political party. I don’t want to disclose the name of the media house against which the complaint has been made.”

The CEO said if the charge is proved, it would be reported to the Press Council of India or Broadcasting Council of India for further action. The entire expenditure involved would be added to the expenditure of the candidate concerned.
