Why did former President Pranab Mukherjee slam and force journalist Rajdeep Sardesai to apologise?

Getting trolled, bashed and slammed is not new for the journalist Rajdeep Sardesai. Till date, who ever were trolling him was labelled as ‘Bhakts’ but this time he cannot to it. The reason is that Rajdeep was ripped apart by the former President of India, Mr Pranab Mukherjee.

Mr Rajdeep has a peculiar habit of poking his tongue time and again to interrupt his invitee on the show. This time he had invited former President Pranab Mukherjee on ‘India Today’. Rajdeep interrupted several times when Mr Mukherjee was answering for the bizarre question posed by Rajdeep.

When this nonsense interruption of Rajdeep went to an extreme level, Mr Mukherjee decided to warn this journalist in the fiercest way.

You are intervening the former President. Please have the necessary courtesy. Don’t interrupt. I am not eager to appear on the screen. You have invited me. Firstly you cannot raise your voice.

After hearing these words, the face of Rajdeep Sardesai was like airless balloon. He immediately tendered an apology so that he can save him from further embarrassment.

In the interview, Mr Mukherjee also mentioned few fascinating things between him and Modi. Mr Mukherjee said that he had an excellent relationship with PM Narendra Modi. He further said that PM Modi gave him respect despite of the political differences between the two leaders.

He praised Modi and also said that majority governments are better than coalition governments which are a result of compromise. This was a huge blow to the people who said that majority to a political party is dangerous to the democracy of India.

Mr Mukherjee also said that he cannot criticise GST and demonetisation move by the Modi govt.

This was not the first time when Rajdeep got bashed by an eminent personality. Prime Minister Modi had done similar task of decimating Rajdeep Sardesai years back.
