Republic TV managing director Arnab Goswami has recently claimed that he was attacked by a mob near the Gujarat’s chief minister’s residence along with his team members while covering the Gujarat riots in 2002. Immediately, journalist Rajdeep Sardesai who was his colleague at that time in NDTV revealed that Arnab wasn’t even in Gujarat during riots and he is simply lying.
Sardesai wrote: “Wow! My friend Arnab claims his car attacked next to CM Res in Guj riots! Truth: he wasn’t covering Ahmedabad riots!!” He further called Arnab a feku, “Fekugiri has its limits, but seeing this, I feel sorry for my profession.”
Not only Sardesai, other journalists such as Sanjeev Singh and Nalin Mehta also disclosed that Arnab was lying about the incident. Mehta tweeted: “Amazing: because actually this incident happened with @sardesairajdeep in Guj riots. We know cos we were there.”
Singh added: “Astonishing revelation considering Arnab wasn’t in Gujarat when this incident took place with @sardesairajdeep.”
On a lighter note, Twitteratis came up with all sorts of reactions. They without Arnab’s permission sent him to the places where he apparently covered every major event in History. They started trolling Arnab with the hashtag #ArnabDidIt.

Arnab has not given any statement yet on this controversy. The Nation definitely wants to know why Arnab is silent? It seems that all the recent allegations that have been faced by him or his channel, Republic TV have made him a different person.
