Watch: Republic TV journalist misbehaves with Pradyuman’s father to get exclusive interview



Republic-TV journlist

Gurugram, Sept 13: What we can call the situation when journalists cross their limitations and misbehave with any person to get the exclusive leads.

Adding one more feather to its cap of controversies, a Republic TV journalist was caught on camera while trying to get the interview of Vishal Thakur, father of 7-year-old Pradyuman Thakur who was brutally killed inside the toilet of Ryan International School.

The reporter allegedly misbehaved with Vishal Thakur during the interview that went live on TV on Monday.

According to Times Now, Thakur had decided to give a live interview to their channel first. Times Now is Arnab Goswami’s erstwhile TV channel where he used to host its prime time show before he launched Republic TV.

Soon the room turned into a boxing ring, with representatives of two different media houses tussled to get Thakur’s bites.

First, the Republic TV guest coordinator (identified as the woman dressed in black) appearing to be agitatedly talking on her phone, suddenly removed the lapel mic pinned to Thakur.

The Times Now reporter, dressed in grey, flung herself onto the woman in black, physically holding her back, in an attempt to let the interview run smoothly. But they were unaware that the entire action-adventure was aired live on TV.

On Wednesday, the Bombay High Court granted interim protection to Ryan International Group of Institutions’ founders Augustine Pinto and Grace Pinto from arrest till September 13. Meanwhile, the two arrested top officials of the Gurugram school were remanded to two-day police custody.

Lucknow, Feb 21: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday announced that the government would establish a defence industrial production corridor in Uttar Pradesh at an estimated cost of Rs 20,000 crore that would also generate 250,000 jobs.

“I am making an important announcement. In this year’s budget, we had announced that we will establish two defence industrial production corridors. One of them will be in Uttar Pradesh,” Modi said addressing the ‘Investors Meet’ here.

The event organised by the Yogi Adityanath government is aimed to showcase the investment opportunities in the state. Corporate honchos are attending the summit.

The Prime Minister said the decision was taken keeping in mind the developmental requirements of Bundelkhand region.

The corridor will link Agra, Aligarh, Lucknow, Kanpur, Jhansi and Chitrakoot, he said.

The government had earlier announced that it would develop two such corridors. The first of the two runs between Chennai and Bengaluru – connecting Kattupalli port, Chennai, Tiruchi, Coimbatore and Hosur.

Modi also praised the Uttar Pradesh government for curbing red tape and rolling out a red carpet for investors and taking decisions that have linked industrial development with employment generation.

“There is no dearth of resources and opportunities in Uttar Pradesh where you find ‘Lucknowi chikankari’, ‘Banarsi zardosi’, brassware of Moradabad and glassware industries of Firozabad,” Modi said.

He also asked the Uttar Pradesh government to compete with Maharashtra in achieving a target of one trillion dollar economy.

“I set this challenge before Uttar Pradesh to compete with Maharashtra and let us see who will become the first trillion dollar economy,” he said.

He said Uttar Pradesh today was the number one state in the production of grains, wheat, sugarcane, milk and potatoes in the whole country.

It is also the second largest producer of fruits and third largest producer of vegetables in the country.

Amritsar, Feb 21: Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Wednesday met visiting Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau here. Both leaders discussed the strong bond that exists between the two places, largely due to an influential Punjabi community settled in the western nation.

After meeting Canadian Prime minister Justin Trudeau the Punjab Chief Minister said, “I raised the issue of Khalistan as it is the primary issue, as there is money coming in from various countries including Canada.”

He also said that Justin Trudeau assured us about our militancy concerns and they will look into this matter.

Besides the Trudeau-Amarinder meeting, which remained uncertain till Monday evening, the other highlight was the Chief Minister meeting Canadian Defence Minister Harjit Singh Sajjan, who was born in Punjab’s Hoshiarpur district and is the first Sikh to handle the defence portfolio of a western country.

Amarinder had refused to meet the Canadian Defence Minister in April 2017 during the latter’s visit to the state and even dubbed him and other ministers of Punjab-origin in the Trudeau government as “Khalistani sympathisers”.

On Wednesday, the Chief Minister not only met Sajjan but also shook hands with him and both leaders smiled at each other.

The Amarinder Singh government went all out to accord a red carpet welcome to Trudeau and his entourage, including his wife and children, during their four hour trip to the Sikh holy city of Amritsar.

Trudeau arrived here from Mumbai on Wednesday morning and offered prayers at the Golden Temple complex, at the holiest of Sikh shrines in the ‘Harmandir Sahib’.
