  • Merely a few hours after the Election Commission issued a notice to media houses who aired Congress President-elect Rahul Gandhi's interview, Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala held a media briefing on Wednesday and attacked the BJP.
  • The Congress in the same press briefing also goes on to support the media by saying, “We will become the shield for your rights.”
  • But the question that we are asking on Republic TV is- Can Congress which blocked media and attacked Republic TV multiple times claim to be the ‘media saviour’?

Hardly a few hours after the Election Commission issued a notice to media houses who aired Congress President-elect Rahul Gandhi's interview, Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala held a media briefing on Wednesday and attacked the BJP.

The Congress in the same press briefing also goes on to support the media by saying, “Whether journalists write against us or for us, whether they praise us or criticise us, we are duty bound to protect your rights, just as Rahul Gandhi said.  We will become the shield for your rights.”

But the question that we are asking on Republic TV is- 

Can Congress which blocked media and attacked Republic TV multiple times claim to be the ‘media saviour’?

Here are the various instances where Republic TV has been assaulted by the Party leaders.

  1. Mani Shankar Aiyar snatches the Republic TV mike from the reporter and says ‘f*** off’ later.
  2. Shashi Tharoor unleashes goons on the Republic TV crew.
  3. Republic TV physically blocked from attending a Congress press conference at the AICC headquarters.

Watch in the video above, all the incidents when Republic TV crew has been blocked, heckled and physically assaulted by the Congress party.
