The constituent parties of the opposition alliance ‘India’ decided on Thursday that they will not send representatives to the programs of 14 TV anchors in the country. This decision was taken in the meeting of the media related committee of ‘India’. After this, political reaction is continuously coming to the fore. Speaking to the media in Indore, Madhya Pradesh, Union Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia said that only those people who have a black heart do such things like blacklisting. He said that you will see what will happen with the role of India alliance from North to South in the country…the public is going to blacklist this alliance.

What did Pawan Kheda tell?

Congress media chief Pawan Kheda had released the list of anchors and said that shops of hatred are decorated on some channels every day from 5 pm. We will not become customers of the market of hatred. Our aim is hate free India. The released list includes Arnab Goswami, Amish Devgan, Chitra Tripathi, Rubika Liaquat, Sudhir Chaudhary, Aditi Tyagi, Aman Chopra, Anand Narasimhan, Ashok Srivastava, Gaurav Sawant, Navika Kumar, Prachi Parashar, Shiv Aroor and Sushant Sinha.

BJP criticized

Here, BJP President JP Nadda criticized this decision of ‘India’ and said that its constituents are doing only two things, one is cursing the Sanatan culture and the other is threatening the media. Union Minister Hardeep Puri compared this step of the opposition alliance to emergency. Union Minister Anurag Thakur said that this step shows his frustration. Every day the leaders of Congress and their allies say that they will destroy Sanatan Dharma and leave no stone unturned in insulting Hindus. Now they have also started boycotting journalists and filing cases. The National Union of Journalists termed the boycott as an attack on democracy.

What did Chirag Paswan say

Here, Lok Janshakti Party (Ram Vilas) President Chirag Paswan has reacted to the boycott of many TV news anchors by the INDIA alliance. He has said that all the parties come together and release a list of some journalists that we will boycott these journalists, is this an emergency situation or not? You will boycott those who do not agree with you. They should use these platforms. Boycotting the fourth pillar of democracy in this manner, isn’t it murder of democracy? Questions will not be asked as per your choice all the time. There are many journalists who are asking questions to the government, the opposition will also be questioned as to why they did not raise these issues. We condemn it.

Union Minister Prahlad Joshi said that Congress and the arrogant alliance people do not believe in the freedom of the press. If you have the correct answer then you come. Why are you afraid of questions? There are also channels where people speak against BJP but BJP never boycotted them because we have answers. Since the Emergency till now he has been against the press. I deny it.

BJP leader Sambit Patra said that I have to ask a question to the award wapsi gang who sell candles whether they will light them anywhere this evening or not… If the same list had been issued by us then there would have been less number of candles in the market. The candle would have been sold in black. Everyone would have been roaming around having bought candles from yesterday. Has a single candle been purchased or not? Will this award wapsi gang return even a single award?
