Narendra Modi has neither forgiven nor forgotten the TV wallahs who brought ‘Gujarat 2002’ to our homes

Why is Republic TV, backed by BJP MP Rajeev Chandrasekhar, the only news channel to get a “license” in the four years of Narendra Modi?

Why is former Network18 promoter Raghav Behl’s application to start a channel still pending with the information and broadcasting ministry?

How is former NDTV presenter Barkha Dutt being prevented from advising promoters, who already have a license, from offering her expertise?

Why is she being asked to “sit out” till 2019?

Why are the television industry bodies silent on a member of the fraternity being prevented from pursuing her livelihood, through veiled threats and insidious intimidation?
