    Every channel except zee and DD news are corrupt , I think they get fund from foreign and Gulf countries to campaign against India , Their TRP is only due to their anti hindu viewer of Gulf countries , Indian People hat news channel like Aajtak , Abp Indian peole

  • Rajesh

    It is fact . Arvind Kejariwal was conducting movement for Lokpal , he resigned from Delhi CM as he was not be able to pass Lokpal in Delhi assembly, due to insufficient majority and got sympathy of people .but when he got full majority with public sympathy and blessing and campaigning of corrupt and paid news channel like Aaj tak ABP, NDTV , then he easily forgot passing Lokpal in Delhi , he was also claiming to bring revolutionary change in law and system , but for this he have not given post of law minister to Mr Prasant Bhusan who was well known law expert but given post of Delhi law Minister to such a person named Jitendra singh Tomer whose degree of law was completely fake .and Arvind Kejariwal’s law Minister is now in Jail . Now what is wrong if Zee news is talking truth about cheater Arvind kerariwal . why this site need to criticize zee news as pro BJP , and anti Kejariwal ? . I proud of Zee news who is showing truth to public and not run behind money from gulf countries , and don’t care for TRP at any cost.
