Padma Shri Barkha Dutt met some common men at the India Gate. But the utterly shocked hi-fi TV journalist had to face a strong protest then and there. Reason: They were agitating-celebrating during activist Anna Hazare-led protests against corruption, and the ordinary people didn’t want anybody like Barkha to kill their high.
NDTV star journalist Barkha has been accused of political leanings in the 2G scam, a charge she vehemently denies. Here is the first tweet dated 9th April, 2011 in which Barkha shared that she was going to report on Anna Hazare from India Gate.
And here’s the video showing people’s outburst against the TV journalist.
And what about the show she did for NDTV? Watch it here wherein she asks the people if the Lokpal Bill is the best way to weed out corruption?
Well, I had earlier reported as to how Barkha had got Vanity Fair to update its website, presumably because one of its stories portrayed her in poor light vis-à-vis her reporting on Mumbai terror attack. But how do you justify such an attack on a journalist? And how do you justify such methods against corruption? And what do you think… how corrupt are We, The People of India?
