On Saturday, Times of India and Economic Times prominently carried a report each on how the income of BJP’s Rajya Sabha candidates in Gujarat had experienced phenomenal jump. According to the report, the party’s president, Amit Shah in particular, has had his income jumped by a whopping 300%
The Times of India Report, authored by Himanshu Kaushik and Kapil Dave, said that Shah’s assets had grown by 300% in the last five years.
The same report also informed how Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Smriti Irani conceded in her election affidavit that she had yet to complete her bachelor’s degree.
However, within hours of the story going viral on social media, the links to both ToI and ET mysteriously disappeared from the web because it was FAKE news and offered no apology
Then why they have deleted these news ? check the below tweet of “The Hindu” media news journo’s tweet:
