An Indian-origin British MP who had lodged an official complaint with the BBC over its “one-sided” coverage of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has now taken the matter to higher authorities in the UK.
Priti Patel, appointed ‘Indian Diaspora Champion’ by PM David Cameron, had written to BBC Director General Tony Hall last month expressing her concerns over a Newsnight programme aired on May 16, the day India’s general election results were declared.
The programme’s editor has now responded denying any bias in BBC’s coverage on the day but Patel termed the as response “dismissive” and “smug” and has written to UK Culture Minister Sajid Javid.
Patel, a Conservative Party MP from Witham, has also urged the Indian community in Britain to continue registering their complaints to the BBC. Patel also claimed the coverage offended many Indians in the UK.
