After almost two decades of joining NDTV, prominent Indian #Presstitute and sold out columnist Barkha Dutt has resigned from her post as Group Editor, as per sources.
The reports confirm that Barkha Dutt is going to step down from her position at NDTV in order to start her own media company.
She has been working with NDTV since she was only 23 year old and has gained prominence due to her work as well as due to the various corruption charges against her. However, her rise to the top was due to her reporting of the Kargil War where she unknowingly disclosed positions of Indian Soldiers to Pakistan and allegedly led to firing on those positions. She is hated by the right wing for her biased reports against BJP, RSS and Hindus.
The right wing has trolled her so much in the past that she has had to write tweets such as the below one:
Yeah I'm Agusta Patrakar & a Presstitute & a Sickular and Anti National. And I have two Muslim Husbands. Now? https://t.co/Q4fqjNBqqf

Her name had also cropped up in the now infamous Niira Radia tapes controversy in 2011 but she had refuted all allegations of being a conduit but as we all know, she is most likely guilty.
Founders of NDTV Radhika and Prannoy wrote an email announcing Dutt’s stepping-down for her post.
Here’s what they said:
Barkha Dutt was only 23 when she joined NDTV as a young reporter cum producer. NDTV was the first place she ever worked in and for two decades we have seen her evolve into one of our most prolific reporters. She has been a key member of the NDTV family and a big part of our memorable journey from a production house that created a nightly news bulletin for doordarshan to what we are today. She has worn many hats for NDTV: journalist, anchor, editor and NDTV has been both her learning ground and her second home.
Now twenty years later we wish her all the very best as she embarks on yet another role with us. Barkha will be moving to the role of Consulting Editor. She will remain as closely associated with NDTV as she has all these years as the anchor for Buck Stops Here on weeknights and We The People on weekends. She will also be available as always for analysis and inputs on big news events and stories. While her TV relationship with NDTV remains unchanged, in her new role she will be setting up her own multi media content company and policy group. We have literally seen Barkha grow from a child to an adult professional and look forward to our close bonds only strengthening further as she embarks on this new venture.
I know you will join us in wishing Barkha the very very best.
Radhika and Prannoy
But it feels like, NDTV has fired barkha Dutt then she herself resigning.
