“Arnab Goswami is the biggest intellectual terrorist of India, take him to Agra immediately”

A video of Republic TV founder Arnab Goswami getting hysterical after opposition parties questioned the reliability of EVMs has gone viral evoking strong reactions from journalists and politicians alike. Leading the charge was AAP’s Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh, who said that Arnab Goswami ought to be admitted into a mental hospital since his case was ‘very serious’.

Arnab Goswami

Singh wrote, “Take this Arnab Goswami to Agra (mental asylum). Very serious case.”



In his subsequent tweet, Singh wrote, “Arnab Goswami is the biggest intellectual terrorist of India and country must be protected from him. Watch this video to understand.”



Singh wasn’t alone in criticising Goswami. While there was no reaction to Singh’s attack for Goswami from anyone representing his channel, Pradeep Bhandari, who carried out one exit poll for Republic TV, lashed out at the founder of Alt News website after he took a dig at Goswami. Bhandari wrote, “A successful entrepreneur who runs 1000 people strong organization, has 18 crore reach is being given sermon by a person who lives off alms thrown at him from a silicon valley company famous for subsidizing trolls?”



Goswami’s antics evoked angry reactions with many accusing him of suffering from an illness. Others asked him to seek a medical treatment.

The counting for this year’s Lok Sabha polls is being held today 23 May.

There’s very little doubt that Arnab Goswami has been acting as the biggest sympathiser of the BJP in the Indian media. Not only did he launch his channel Republic TV with the help of BJP’s Rajya Sabha MP Rajeev Chandrasekhar, he allegedly allowed his channel to be used as a propaganda tool for the saffron party.  On Tuesday, Goswami plunged into a state of hysteria after a panelist questioned his channel’s exit poll forecast giving BJP-led NDA more than 300 seats. In his anger, he began singling out Congress President Rahul Gandhi and his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra for his insulting jibes as he said that the two had been thrown into a dustbin!

Ever since exit poll predictions predicting resounding wins for the BJP, opposition parties have begun raising doubts on the reliability of EVMs. Their apprehensions were further compounded by the emergence of several videos showing suspicious movements of EVMs. As many as 20 opposition parties met the Election Commission on Tuesday while raising their suspicions on EVMs. Former President Pranab Mukherjee too issued a statement raising serious doubts over the reliability of EVMs.

Reacting angrily to the opposition parties’ doubts on EVMs, a visibly hysterical Goswami launched a tirade against the Gandhi family and opposition parties as he kept moving around his TV studio. He said, “Just because Modi has been predicted to win more than 300 seats, you call elections fake. Just because Narendra Modi will become prime minister again, so the election was fake. Because people have thrown Rahul Baba and Priyanka Vadra into a dustbin, so the election was fake. Since Kejriwal will not get more than 100 votes in Delhi, so the election was fake.”

His hysteria continued as the camera began to follow him everywhere. At one point the camera was circling him frantically as Goswami remained busy launching his rant. It was almost as if a dramatic Bollywood sequence was being shot.

Goswami returned to the desk, where his TV guests anxiously waited for him to end his diatribe. Addressing a panelist from a non-BJP party, Goswami asked for an apology for calling the election fake. What he didn’t expect was that the guest in question will choose to reply to him with equal aggression as he called the election rigged and accused the Election Commission of having sold themselves. What appeared to irk Goswami the most was when the panelist said, “sold out media” in a direct reference to Republic TV.
