video put out by the website jantakareporter shows an ANI journalist being asked by cops to remove his black jacket at the entrance to a rally in Varanasi which was to be addressed by the UP CM Yogi Adityanath and BJP President Amit Shah. Even as he refuses, pointing out there's nowhere to leave it an organiser after some argument with the cops, waves him in. The Balia SP says everyone had the instructions to see that "no one shows black cloth to Yogiji." Meaning what, black flags? Will the UP media protest?

The journalists initially agreed but when Mevani still insisted that the Republic journalist leave, the Chennai media decided to boycott him.
