"The media has projected Durga as Durgaji. Otherwise in such cases, officers from the level of managing director (MD) to chief engineer get suspended and not even a single line is published," Azam said.

The minister said the issue of Nagpal's suspension has been blown out of proportion by the television news media and added that there would have been no dispute if the district magistrate had also been suspended.

Regarding reports claiming that Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav was in darkness over Nagpal's suspension, Azam blamed the district magistrate of not giving a clear picture to Yadav and keeping him ignorant of the real situation.
