The Questions Media Asks To Our Politicians

For the hundredth time, let me tell you I like the scene from movie Nayak where Anil Kapoor asks direct questions to the Chief Minister and makes him answer them on live TV show. Why doesn’t this happen in reality? Maybe the politicians have bought the media.

I was watching IBN Lokmat news channel and stumbled upon Nikhil Wagale interviewing Deputy CM, Mr. Ajit Pawar. The interview veered into the discussion on Gujrat development and how Mr. Narendra Modi, despite the litigations against him is responsible for the development of Gujrat state. Mr. Wagale asked Pawar whether he’s considering introduction of “Single Window Clearance” for the businesses. Now, instead of answering in ‘yes’ or ‘no’, Mr. Pawar touched upon ‘How we should do stuff’ and never answered the direct question. I expected Mr. Wagale to be direct in his questions and get a ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ from the minister.

But I was disappointed.

I wonder why Mr. Wagale didn’t ask direct questions or questions related to public’s interest. He went on to ask Mr. Pawar whether he aims to become the CM and other irrelevant questions.

I believe IBN Lokmat isn’t an independent news channel. Maybe it’s indirectly controlled by the government.

What do you think?

    Hey Biggie all news channels are bound to government, they will not go against anyone unless they already have any protection.
