When I become the Prime Minister of India, I will introduce a series of constitution changing measures that will aim to severely limit the freedom of press in India.
First among those measures will be a special bill set to motion in the parliament called "The Ezhavu Bill". This bill will create a law banning the press from photographing or video graphing dead bodies, funeral processions, oppari sessions, crying relatives and friends, amavasya tharpanam, soundi related activities. They cannot even provide clips of 10th day or 13th day activities or interview soundi brahmins.
Barkha Dutt/Sardesai types who violate this law and intrude other's sacred privacy will have all the above activities expedited for them - all of which will of course be shown live in DD.
