Rahul Kanwal held an interview with Madhya Pradesh chief minister Kamal Nath and extracted his views on India’s internal matter (CAA) and even economy, thereby proving his intention to spoil India’s image on the global platform
Bengaluru: India Today journalist Rahul Kanwal has made a mockery of himself after the telecast of the orchestrated #JNUTapes with a malicious intent to besmirch the reputation of and fix the ABVP in the violence that rocked JNU on January 5.
While the Twitterati tore him apart, it is very evident that he has not learnt his lessons.
You might all be aware that the World Economic Forum is taking place at Davos, Switzerland. It is a place where India should be selling its prospects in a big way so as to ameliorate its nosediving economy.
But instead of improving its economic prospects, Rahul Kanwal put out a tweet, interviewing Madhya Pradesh chief minister Kamal Nath and going the extra mile to put India in a bad light.
‘In all the decades that I have coming to Davos @wef have never seen the buzz around India being so subdued. Everyone I meet is asking about the falling economy and growing social unrest. Central Govt is to blame for this mess.’ says MP @OfficeOfKNath to @IndiaToday pic.twitter.com/fr2T7ESvVG— Rahul Kanwal (@rahulkanwal) January 22, 2020
And as usual, Rahul Kanwal dug his own grave as the brilliant Twitterati put him in his place, with their witty replies.
Why don't you run a sting on @OfficeOfKNath to find out whether he's responsible for Sikh genocide or not? Want someone to dare you? You can start with asking the victims of Sikh genocide and their family, take their confession and make a report. #bitch @rahulkanwal— Tisya Shreyas (@immortalkaiser1) January 22, 2020
Congress burning public property. Congress making the students vandalize universities n creating atmosphere of fear. Congress pushing the youth to join dem by bribing Rs.500 per day in blocking roads so tht ppl r unable to reach office. Congress is responsible 4 falling economic— Indira (@indib11) January 22, 2020
Some even showed him the mirror and questioned him the growth rate during the second tenure of Manmohan Singh’s government.
Of course, to you and your channel only the opinion of these losers will matter. What was the growth rate in the second tenure of the Manmohan Singh govt ?— Sonu Kaole🇮🇳 (@SonK0319) January 22, 2020
It is nothing short of being shameful. To put India’s financial position in a bad light on an international platform is nothing short of cheap tactics.
Take some Credit. Come on. You have worked day in and day out to demean the country's image. This is a reflection of your relentless pursuit to ensure our nation's brand value is impacted internationally.— Ajay Singh (@Ajay_HRX) January 22, 2020
Back to the issue of #JNUTapes India Today exposed itself as the time code of the sting operation dated back to October 22 of 2019 while the ruckus in JNU took place on January 5.
Rahul Kanwal’s endeavour to put India in a bad light also included his tweet on CAA.
‘PM talks of cooperative federalism. But states are not consulted before big decisions like CAA are rolled out. Youth of India are frustrated with PM Modi and this frustration will keep coming out in different ways. National CAA protests have hurt PM’s image’, says @OfficeOfKNath pic.twitter.com/NyUEah5mXH— Rahul Kanwal (@rahulkanwal) January 22, 2020
Seriously, was there any need for this journalist to talk about CAA on an international platform? Isn’t CAA an internal issue of India? Why should one mention and talk about it at an Economic Forum?
Moreover when CAA has been passed by both houses of Indian Parliament and the Indian Supreme Court has been hearing it, was there any need?
