“Nation wants to know if Arnab will resign and quit journalism”


A day after veteran journalist Rajdeep Sardesai called out Republic TV’s Arnab Goswami’s lies on Gujarat coverage, the latter’s video had mysteriously disappeared from YouTube.


Meanwhile, Sardesai, now a consulting editor with India Today TV, has gone jugular against his former colleague asking him if he will resign and quit journalism now that his lies had been put out in the open.

India Today has announced its plan to do a prime time show on the reported lies of Arnab Goswami tonight at 10 PM. Rahul Kanwal, a managing editor with the India Today group, tweeted, “The Nation Wants to Know: Is Arnab Goswami a big liar? Will he apologise now that his blatant lie has been caught out?”

This was after in a series of tweets, Sardesai wrote, “I now ask a simple direct question: nation wants to know if Arnab will resign and quit journalism if his story turns out to be false?”

Sardesai also claimed that his cameraperson, accompanying him during the Gujarat riots coverage will soon speak the truth on camera.

He wrote, “First lie, now cover up with more lies. Rupen Pahwa, cameraperson in car when we were attacked, coming on cam to tell all! Watch this space!”

Sardesai went on to add, “If someone chooses to defend the indefensible, leaves me with no choice but not to end this but expose the brazen lies till formal apology.”

On Tuesday, Sardesai had called former journalist, Arnab Goswami’s claims of being in trouble while covering the Gujarat genocide of 2002 ‘fekugiri’ implying that there was no truth to the latter’s claims. Hours after Janta Ka Reporter first published this report, Arnab’s video had mysteriously disappeared from the YouTube.

While posting an old video of Goswami, where he’s seen narrating how he was in trouble while covering the Gujarat riots for the NDTV in 2002, Sardesai wrote, “Wow! My friend Arnab claims his car attacked next to CM Res in Guj riots! Truth:he wasn’t covering Ahmedabad riots!!”

He added, “Fekugiri has its limits, but seeing this, I feel sorry for my profession.”
