Rajdeep, all media houses including yours have interviewed and questioned Opposition Party leaders, right from the smallest MLA to the Leader of Opposition (LoP). The two LoPs; Arun Jaitly and Sushma Swaraj in-fact are so accessible, and are even very vocal about their views on blogs and even on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter. You have also question even the tallest leaders of political party in the opposition. Be it L. K.Advani or Narendra Modi , Nitin Gadkari or even the BJP Party President Rajnath Singh. It is a totally different matter whether the questioning is done rightly or wrongly, but it is done- in a robust manner.
But why is it so that never in this existing life have Indian’s seen any media house or journalist including you question the Party Leaders of the ruling party with the same vigor? Why is it that you take such a partisan stand and never question the President of the Ruling party Sonia Gandhi ever? And Rahul Gandhi too shielded until few weeks ago- (not shielded after he shot his mouth off in a questionable number of times).
Why is it that you have allowed Sonia Gandhi to be untouchable to any media scrutiny? And not just Sonia it goes for many congress members, like Ashvini Kumar’s return to normal work with the PM even after vetting the CBI report before submitting it to the Supreme Court, Abhishek Manu Singhvi Returned after the ugly episode of him in the the Supreme court Chambers, and the list is endless.
This comes as a stark contrast when we see debates after debates on what Modi’s one sentence or one flip flop – in a two hour long address become breaking news. Which often become media fodder for days and weeks. Also invoking intervention from such a diverse backgrounds. So it is difficult to not attribute motives to media, when you see people and journalists with colored agendas, representation from minority communities, or NGOs with little credibility, they all find space on your tv panel discussions. It is almost as if the MEDIA is building up hate for BJP – Modi on all sections of people on one hand and The one-who-cannot-be-named policy for Sonia Gandhi with ZERO Questions Asked. She is in public life and cannot escape responsibility if journalists like you worth your salt go behind her. And as the phrase goes, which applies to Sonia, Manmohan, Rahul and the ruling congress the most is
”if you cannot stand the heat (media questioning) she shouldnt be in the kitchen?”
So in short – ”Rajdeep, why is it so that never in this existing life have Indian’s seen any media house or journalist including you question and goes after the Party Leaders of the ruling party specifically party president Sonia Gandhi the way in which you (as in media in general) hound Narendra Modi ?”
