Prime time:PM tears move news anchors

time debates Tuesday were spoilt for choice — from the Maharashtra government’s probe into tweets by former cricketer Sachin Tendulkar and others celebrities on the farmers’ protest, to PM Modi’s emotional moment in the Rajya Sabha.

On News Nation, Bharatiya Janata Party’s Sambit Patra was “shocked” that a debate was being held on PM Modi’s teary farewell to Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad in the Rajya Sabha, while Anjana Om Kashyap on Aaj Tak questioned why celebrities who had raised their voices against an alleged foreign conspiracy, and displayed “desh prem” are caught up in a political storm.

Speaking on the subsequent online trolling of Tendulkar and singer Lata Mangeshkar and others for their tweets, journalist Sanjay Kapoor said, “What the Maharashtra government is actually doing is to embarrass the BJP”.

RSS thinker Desh Ratan Nigam added, “They tweeted for the integrity and sovereignty of India and to remain united. And nobody should have any problem with this.” He said inquiries against such tweets are “illegal, unconstitutional and unlawful”.

Aaj Tak’s prime time debate was headlined — “Uddhav Thackeray and BJP again face to face?”.
