It has barely been 3 days since Republic TV started its new venture and some very powerful people are feeling the heat already. While Lalu Prasad Yadav has locked himself up in his home, his coalition partner, Bihar CM Nitish Kumar is very uncomfortable. Shashi Tharoor is tweeting hysterically!
Exasperating farrago of distortions, misrepresentations&outright lies being broadcast by an unprincipled showman masquerading as a journalst

However, the man hurt the most is Delhi CM, Shri Arvind Kejriwal. Yesterday, Aam Aadmi Party’s cadres had assaulted some Republic TV crew members. The Media house revealed the information in a tweet:

As per latest information, there is no police case filed as yet. The anarchists are roaming free despite terrorising the media.
Another thing that was prominent was the silence of the champions of “Freedom of Expression” and the so-called “activists” advocating “Free Press”. But it was expected, as the unveiling of Republic TV means a death knell to other media houses.
