Rahul Gandhi Condemns Arrest Of UP Journalists, BJP Cites Karnataka "Hypocrisy"
By Ndtv 12-Jun-2019
A post by Congress chief Rahul Gandhi condemning the arrest of journalists by Uttar Pradesh authorities on defamation charges sparked off a war of words on social media today, with the BJP calling him "hypocritical" for overlooking similar actions by his party's coalition government with the Janata Dal Secular (JDS) in Karnataka.
It all started when Rahul Gandhi tweeted around noon today that the Yogi Adityanath government's action of arresting five people, including Delhi-based journalist Prashant Kanojia, amounted to gross overreaction. "If every journalist who files a false report or peddles fake, vicious RSS/BJP sponsored propaganda about me is put in jail, most newspapers/news channels would face a severe staff shortage. The UP CM is behaving foolishly & needs to release the arrested journalists," his post read.
