The Congress has decided not to send spokespersons for television debates for a month.
The move comes after the party's debacle in the recently concluded Lok Sabha polls.
The Congress has often accused the media of being "biased" towards the Modi dispensation.
"@INCIndia has decided to not send spokespersons on television debates for a month,"Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala tweeted.
"All media channels/editors are requested to not place Congress representatives on their shows," he said.
 
The Congress is currently facing a crisis with party president Rahul Gandhi adamant on his decision to quit after the poll debacle -- winning just 52 Lok Sabha seats -- and its state governments facing an uncertain future.
