Snippets

Desperate for publicity, out of power politician requests Arnab to conduct an 'Expose' on him

30, May 2017 By Santosh Pradhan

Arnab Goswami, one of India’s leading journalists recently launched his own TV channel, Republic TV. As expected the channel started with a bang, making public tapes of RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav and gangster-politician Shahabuddin. After that he conducted a series of Exposes on ISIS, Shashi Taroor and many more. So much so that he made politicians and other news makers famous overnight by conducting the exposes. Recently a U.P politician who is out of power has requested Arnab to conduct an expose on him to gain such much needed publicity.

Congress MLA from U.P Mr. Shwetank Srivastava has been out of news since last 10 years as congress doesn’t have a subsequent base or a strong hold in U.P politics nowadays. Shwetank tried a lot of things like ‘burning Modi effigies, sitting on dharnas, creating violence in the name of caste but all in vain. Finally he realized the most effective way of self-promotion i.e to appear on Arnab’s expose. For this, he has sent a formal request to the channel and has even submitted evidence against himself to get exposed.

Faking News reporter caught up with Shwetank and he had this to say, ” Arnab is continuously exposing people who are of national importance. Where will people like me go who belong to a degrading party and a city no one bothers to care about. Even we should get some footage, at least once a week. I have also committed crimes, taken law into my own hands, then why am I not being exposed. This is my request to Arnab Goswami, if he has the guts to carry my expose and maintain his TRPs. I will provide him all my phone recordings, documents, my contact list which includes all the goondas of U.P, he just has to expose me. The task is simpler for him now.”

Congress party has sent a show cause notice to Shwetank and explained him that his antics can bear severe punishment if he doesn’t back down.
