National Register of Citizens

DIRTY WAR AS REPUBLIC UTTERS PRINT, PRINT, IMPRINTED, UNPRINTABLE
WAR ON TV - “Quit the profession, Dammit!”— Arnab Goswami tells Shekhar Gupta
05.04.19 - PT MEDIA DESK
WAR ON TV - “Quit the profession, Dammit!”— Arnab Goswami tells Shekhar Gupta



A DIRTY intra-media war broke out on Indian news television as Republic TV's Arnab Goswami warned, dared and asked senior journalist Shekhar Gupta and a couple of other journalists to quit the profession and threatened to expose them over their alleged role in the coverage of the AgustaWestland VVIP chopper deal scam. 

"If you think today that I will stop at anything, I won't...I will take down these dirty editors and their dirty reporters brick by brick. You may not name them, I will," Arnab Goswami told the nation, as he is fond of referring to his audience.

Shekhar Gupta, on the other hand, was quoted in The Indian Express as saying that "the rigorous and pathbreaking investigation into the deal" that he and his team did when he was at the helm of affairs at The Indian Express, "speaks for itself."

"(T)here was absolutely no question of any influence," Gupta told The Indian Express on Thursday. By late evening, Arnab Goswami was spitting fire, his natural mode of fulmination over issues of national interest.

He kept referring to "these dirty editors and their dirty reporters" but did not name Gupta, while making sure that no one is left in any doubt. Shekhar Gupta, a media entrepreneur, now heads The Print, and is a well known and widely highly regarded journalist with considerable presence in the electronic as well as print media. 
Republic TV on Journalists 
 
The full-frontal war of editors was triggered after the Enforcement Directorate’s latest chargesheet claimed that Christian Michel has "admitted hiring services of Guy Douglas to influence the media.” The chargesheet, sections of the media reported, mentioned the names of senior journalists Manu Pubby and Gupta. Both worked for The Indian Express at the time of reporting this scam.
 
Republic TV on Sonia Gandhi  

The AgustaWestland deal was cancelled in 2014 after the scam hit headlines.

"I will not stop till our team of journalists will expose the dalals who constituted the dirty brigade of top editors and reporters of Lutyens Delhi," Goswami shouted at the top of his voice.
Republic TV on Sonia Gandhi

And then he refused to pause. Instead, he dared "that dirty editor and his dirty reporter, and that dirty editor who took money, the three of them, to own up before it is too late." 

Republic TV on Pranab Mukherjee 
 
It was very clear that Goswami, currently a darling of the regime, was levelling serious allegations of corruption against one of India's top journalists, but he was still not naming him, while all the time saying, "If you think that some subtle references will be made, I won't. I don't give a damn when it comes to things like this."

But then he shied away from taking names. Instead, he chose a different route, spewing and spouting long-winded malformed sentences that were peppered and punctuated throughout with the word 'print', or better still, 'PRINT'.
 
Republic TV on then PMO 

Listen to Goswami working hard to somehow insert 'print' with every breath, and some more in between: 

"Remember, you may PRINT anything, you may put anything to PRINT, you may choose not to put it to PRINT, it may not be in PRINT, but it will be in PRINT one day. The truth will be PRINTED, because it must be in PRINT, the truth must be IMPRINTED into our nation's memory, and those in PRINT must PRINT the UNPRINTABLE TRUTH because what is UNPRINTABLE must be PRINTED with EXPRESS vision and EXPRESS speed. If there is any COURAGE in those who talk about how EXPRESS they are with the news, I want it to be in the PRINT."

Republic TV on Journalists 
 
There he was, the quintessential Arnab Goswami, never shy of a good fight, or a bad and dirty one, and he seemed ready to take upon not just Gupta but also the Indian Express.

"I am only giving them advance warning and I know, some of them will file caveats in the Delhi high court tomorrow -- Republic TV should not name us, save us!... The nation will get to know your names," he promised.

And then he directly addressed the journalists he was trying to put in the dock: "Did you meet Guy Douglas? Did you and your reporter meet Guy Douglas?" 
 
Profile of Shekhar Gupta in Caravan 

And soon, he laid out his own demand charter, telling these journalists who have built their reputations over years of work: "They should not open their mouths, they should seal their lips for the rest of their lives."

Described by the Caravan magazine once as "an omnipresent newspaperman in the age of celebrity television anchors," Gupta, "the son of a minor bureaucrat" turned "one of the best-connected, and richest, journalists in the country," accepted the Padma Bhushan award in 2009 and is known for his proximity to power.

Goswami seemed to have a particular issue with Shekhar's wealth. "These people who build farm houses and make enormous amounts of money, want to lecture us? They should leave the profession," he said, before deciding to make it rather more succinct: "Quit the profession, Dammit!"

Shekhar Gupta on Rafale scam 
 
Shekhar had earlier been dismissive of another scam, the Rafale scam. He wrote: "Rafale deal is no scam. It’s just a glaring example of the BJP government’s pusillanimous, unimaginative ... handling of defence purchases."

He, in fact, claimed that "any major defence deal" in India "is bound to be called a scam" and if "there's a humongous scam in the Rafale deal, it is called stupidity."

The media world, or as Goswami refers to it 178 times every evening, the Lutyens' India, is now waiting to see what IMPRINT has it left on the senior journalist. As for Republic TV, Goswami seemed sure of just one fact: that people do not go to Claridges hotel to have a milk shake with a man called Guy Douglas.

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE MANIFESTO
Congress releases manifesto for 2019 Lok Sabha elections

Congress releases manifesto for 2019 Lok Sabha elections



With 2019 Lok Sabha elections less than two weeks away, the Congress party on Tuesday announced its manifesto for the polls naming it ‘Jan Awaaz’. The manifesto was released in the presence Rahul Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi and former prime minister Manmohan Singh. Priyanka Gandhi and other big leaders were also there. 

Congress president Rahul Gandhi while releasing the manifesto, emphasised that the manifesto reflects the voice of people which will focus on wealth and welfare.

"When we started this process about a year back, I spoke to Mr Chidamabaram, Mr Gowda & gave two instructions. I said this is not a manifesto to be made in closed rooms but this should reflect the wishes of the people of India," said Gandhi.
 
Former finance minister P Chidambaram was the head of the manifesto committee. Speaking at the press conference, Chidambaram said that the manifesto will set the narrative for the polls. "The BJP may be the ruling party today but the party is trying to take the narrative to five years back ...to divisiveness and hyper nationalism....Our manifesto is focussed on real issues of jobs," Chidambaram said. 

Chidambaram said unemployment, farmer distress and security of women are top three issues. The theme of the manifesto is how to marry wealth and welfare, he added. 
 
Let's take a look at the highlights of the manifesto:
 
Minimum Income Guarantee:
The Congress has promised to implement Nyuntam Aay Yojana (NYAY) to eliminate poverty. To ensure a life of dignity to all Indians, Congress will introduce the Nyuntam Aay Yojana (NYAY) under which Rs. 72,000/year will be transferred to the poorest 20 per cent households in India. It will be transferred to the woman in the household, as far as possible.
 
Universal Healthcare:
The Congress promised to enact the Right to Healthcare Act and guarantee every citizen free diagnostics, out-patient care, free medicines and hospitalisation, through a network of public hospitals and enlisted private hospitals. It said, "We will double expenditure on healthcare to 3 per cent of GDP by 2023-24.”
 
Employment:
To the youth of India, Congress pledges to make jobs our no.1 priority, both in the public and private sector. The party has promised 34 lakh jobs in the public sector if elected to power by filling all 4 lakh central government vacancies before March 2020, persuading the state governments to fill their 20 lakh vacancies and creating an estimated 10 lakh new Seva Mitra positions in every gram panchayat and urban local body.
 
Taxation:
Congress has also promised to enact the Direct Taxes Code in the first year of government; review and replace the current GST laws with the GST 2.0 regime based on a single, moderate, standard rate of tax; abolish the e-way bill.
 
Farmers And Farm Labour:
The Congress has promised to put the farmers "on the path from "Karz Maafi” (loan waiver), to "Karz Mukti” (loan-free)”. The manifesto also promises to present a separate "Kisan Budget” every year. "We will also establish a permanent National Commission on Agricultural Development and Planning,” says the poll document of the Congress.
 
Quality Education For Every Child:
The Congress has said it will make school education from Class I to Class XII in public schools compulsory and free if elected to power. "We will double the allocation for Education to 6 per cent of GDP by 2023-24,” the party said.
 
Electoral Reforms:
