  • A word of advice for Barkha Dutt, Arnab Goswami: Your childish fight makes us want to gag ourselves

    Is there something that you have seen or heard in your life that you could not give a toss about?

Then, as we sold our souls to the company store, it became a bit of a dog-eat-dog equation. But this unseemly open fight between Arnab Goswami and Barkha Dutt is the absolute pits and a total disgrace to the profession of journalism. You are both making a mockery of the fourth estate and it is the most shamefully self-indulgent exercise possible. Like Caesar said to Casca the two of you are fat and sleek

After he was denied the ticket from Amritsar by the BJP in the 2014 Lok Sabha election, he was merely biding his time to hit back at rivals within the party. Although he was nominated to the Rajya Sabha three months ago, Mr. Sidhu was by no means mollified. Just days after he took oath as member, he said he had earlier refused a Rajya Sabha seat offered as compensation for vacating Amritsar for Mr. Jaitley, and that he was again open to staying away from the Rajya Sabha.
