Watch! What Nidhi Razdan and Swati Chaturvedi did on the NDTV’s Debate Show! Shocking!
December 30, 2016
The NDTV on Tuesday conducted a debate on a book written by Swati Chaturvedi who is well known for her abusive tweets. She had abused and threatened people on social media for questioning and criticising her. Chaturvedi has written a book ‘I am a Troll: Inside the secret world of the BJP’s digital army’ mainly aimed at attacking the social media activists who are exposing the mainstream media.
NDTV has been criticised for supporting terrorists like Burhan Wani, Afzal Guru, and Yakub Memon. This has resulted in the fall of viewership less than 2%. NDTV had also supported people like Kanhaiya Kumar who raised Pro Pakistani slogans in JNU.
NDTV’s senior anchor Nidhi Razdan, who conducted the special debate, quoted a passage from the book that said, “people have shown their power. An actor made this mistake….some of our people are very smart, there was a team on this, they were telling people you order and return..” According to the book, these words were of Manohar Parrikar.
Nidhi Razdan argues that Manohar Parrikar had said the “Our” word which indicates that BJP and government were leading a campaign against Amir Khan. And BJP has directed its supporters to social media to attack him with the Snap Deal.
However, Parrikar had never used the “Our people are smart”. The video had emerged in June 2016, where he actually said, “When this actor did this, the company for which he was advertising, was an online trading company. Many people broke relations with that their company. Many people quit from the lease, and some over smart people ordered goods and sent them back. There was a team, which I know, which was working on this. They were telling people you order and return it, this company should learn a lesson that to pull out his advertisement.”
In the month of August, Barkha Dutt herself conceded the fact that Manohar Parrikar had never used the word “our” or “my” in his speech. The question arises that why did Swati Chaturvedi and Nidhi Razdan lie about the statement? Is this NDTV’s attempt to spread fake propaganda?
