Hon’ble Mr.Justice Markandey Katju (retd),
Chairperson, Press Council of India
GRO, Grievance Redressal Officer

Dear Sir,

As per Times of India report ( Narendra Modi flies in Uttarakhand, goes in a huddle with his crack team and then sends 15000 Gujaratis back to safety in one night.

How, I ask, when even the Army has been able to rescue just 20000 in a week. The questions are-

1- How did Team Modi selectively locate these Gujaratis apart from all those stranded from 27 other Indian States and 7 Union Territories?

2- Did Modi’s choppers and Boeings and luxury buses were given priority landing rights? If yes, did they choose Gujaratis over those more in need?

3- That is if Team Modi disposed all rules of rescue that define the order of evacuation- seriously sick first, followed by children and elderly, followed by women and able bodied men?

4- If the answer to the above questions is yes then this act of privileging Gujarati victims over all above is a criminal act and those responsible should be prosecuted.

If no, then ToI is lying in plain and simple terms and It should be punished for masquerading Paid Advertisement as news.

  1. appne state ki madat to kari 15000 nahi 1500 hi le gaye ho le to gaya.
    aur sirf gujrati hi le gaya to kya vo bhi insaan hi thay na. u.p ke kaun se minister ne aisa kaam kiya aisi bakvaas baaton ko naa karke vaha pe fase logon koi madat kar sakte hai to kare.

  2. कांग्रेस पार्टी ने इतना रुपया जमा कर लिया है कि वह देश विदेश के किसी भी अखबार को खरीद सके। नरेंद्र मोदी ने पहले जो किया वह बहस का मुददा हो सकता है, लेकिन उन्हें गालियां दे कर अपनी छवि चमकाने का एक फैशन सा चल पड़ा है। कुछ नेता और उनके दरबारी बुद्धिजीवियों ने मोदी को गाली देना, धर्मनिरपेक्षता और सदभावना का पैमाना बना दिया है, जो सिर्फ उनके स्वार्थ को ही सिद्ध करता है और इसके दूरगामी बुरे नजीते हो सकते हैं।
