The Press Council of India has taken suo-moto cognisance over a statement made by Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot on 16 December 2019. 
 
Gelhot has allegedly said 'Vighyapan chahte ho toh hamare khabhar dikhao' (if you want advertisements, show us our stories). 
 
The Press Council has sent a notice to the chief secretary of Rajasthan in this regard as it believes such a statement is contrary to the values of a democracy and affects the reliability and freedom of media.
