Here are the highlights of his press conference.

  • Will ask for CBI probe on journalists killing
  • Today we will decide whether to hand over the case to CBI,this after request by the family
  • Agar kisi patrakar pe hamla hota hai toh hum ise apne oopar humla maante hain,mujhe Police par bharosa hai
  • People who campaigned using ‘Jungle Raj’ term were defeated and they cannot reconcile themselves now. So, they see everything from that prism
  • It’s natural for the those in government to face the flak when such incidents happen.
  • Let there be no doubt that we will not spare anybody who commit crimes
