Triple Talaq, Sonu Nigam and Sri Sri, but not Gujarat’s ‘land scam’ on Indian TVs


We are back with tonight’s Prime Time TV debates.

Although Friday’s biggest story has been the revelation on Gujarat chief minister, it remains to be seen how channel treat this story.

Many on social media have expressed reservation saying the channels may not want to discuss this development as it tends to portray the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi in an extremely poor light.

But we will see.
