Mumbai: Hundreds of media persons who have arrived at the Grand Hyatt to cover the INDIA bloc conclave are being shabbily treated. They are not allowed entry even into the hotel lobby. They have been asked to stand under the hot sun in the hotel compound with no toilet facilities.
According to media personnel's account from the venue, the press meet was scheduled at 3.30 pm. However, the media persons were asked to line up at a side entrance at 2 pm itself. When they arrived at the appointed time, they were first asked to come at 2.30 and then the time was changed to 3 pm at the last minute. This resulted in great inconvenience to all the media people present there.
