BJP boycotts NDTV over news gaffe

The NDTV has falsely attributed a tweet to Sushma Swaraj in an article on its website.

The Bharatiya Janata Party on Saturday published a press release on its website stating that they have “decided to keep away from panel discussions of NDTV for present.”

The NDTV Twitter account has falsely attributed a tweet to Sushma Swaraj. NDTV, last night, confirmed that they haven’t reported the story on TV. The unverified tweet pooh-poohs “Modi-wave” and NDTV tweeted it without confirming the source of the tweet.

The BJP said in its press release that the “Tweet being manufactured by a channel in order to hurt BJP is unprecedented.”

Both the NDTV and Editor and Journalist Barkha Dutt apologised on Twitter for the “erroneous tweet”.
