New Delhi, Sep 25 (TIWN) Two Congress leaders' families have moved the Supreme Court seeking to intervene in the Sudarshan News case. The families say the present state of the electronic media bears "unhappy and undesirable parallels with Nazi Germany".

The applicants include the widow of Congress politician Rajiv Tyagi who died recently of a heart attack after participating in a TV debate, and Congress spokesman Pawan Khera's wife. The applicants urged the top court not to give the benefit of Article 19 of the Constitution - freedom of speech and expression to such TV anchors and purveyors/peddlers of "hate speeches".
