Pakistan’s number one news channel NDTV doesn’t gain much from India. Now that they’ve lost Barkha Dutt, they don’t even get TRPs (Terrorist Rating Points). The channel is endorsed by Hafeez Saeed (who probably prefers Ravish Kumar to Vikram Chandra) for obvious reasons. Remember, Hafeez Saeed once said there are good people in India. He named Barkha & a few others Pakistani brokers.
Nidhi Razdan, who was not appreciated by Hafeez Saeed, probably felt left out. She has directly taken over as Barkha Dutt’s successor at NDTV (just like Sabzar Ahmed succeeded Burhan Wani).I personally like Prannoy Roy. He is well behaved, soft-spoken, extremely patriotic (towards pak) & is directly related to India’s most hated author, Arundati Roy. NDTV which had earlier come up with slogans like ‘News over noise’ saw Razdan losing her cool, as she asked BJP spokesperson, Sambit Patra to leave the show.
BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra hit out at the channel during the course of a debate on NDTV. However, the NDTV anchor was hurt (Sach Kadva hota hai), after Patra accused the channel of being biased and carrying out an agenda. NDTV is totally unaware of ‘Athithi Devo Bhava’ (The Guest is equivalent to God).
But, how will a Pakistani based news channel understand Sanskrit. Sambit Patra was appreciated on Twitter for speaking up against the anti-national channel.

Razdan’s show had five panelists. One each from the BJP & the Congress, and three others who were discussing the incident where a cow was slaughtered in public by 8 members of the Kerala Congress.
