Rajat Sharma posted a cryptic tweet, which implied that he was critical of the outgoing US President Donald Trump, but netizens felt that the India TV founder was targeting Arnab Goswami for his desperate plea seeking the Supreme Court’s intervention in the matter of his custody. The development came days after Goswami launched an unprecedented tirade against Sharma, challenging him for a ‘face-off’ on the latter’s TV channel.
Sharma on Monday tweeted, “He ridiculed and abused media, lied on camera, had no basic decency, was mean to everyone, faked popularity, now he wants SC to rescue him and media to support him! What a bully…!!!Concede and go now, Mr Trump.”

No sooner did Sharma post his tweet, an overwhelming majority of Twitter users felt that the veteran TV anchor was targeting Arnab Goswami with his cryptic social media post. Goswami too has ridiculed other media outlets calling them ‘Lutyens media houses’ and also faced allegations of manipulating TRP to boost the ratings for his TV channels. Soon after the Maharashtra Police had shifted Goswami to Navi Mumbai’s Taloja Jail, a desperate Republic TV founder was seen urging the Supreme Court for its intervention alleging that his life was under threat.
Reacting to Sharma’s tweet, one user wrote, “Remove the name mentioned in this tweet and the resemblence to Arnab seems purely intentional.” Another user wrote, “For a split second, I thought this is a rant about Mr Goswami.” Radio Jockey Sayema wrote, “Same here :)” “At first I thought Rajat Sharma has grown a spine and posted about Arnab Goswami,” commented another Twitter user.
Last month, Goswami had launched a tirade against India TV founder Rajat Sharma and dared him inviting the former to his TV channel for a ‘one-to-one’ face-off. This was days after Goswami called actor Salman Khan a senior citizen and an elderly person.
