Shiv Sena slams BJP, seeks action against Arnab

Mumbai: Shiv Sena attacked the Centre over the leaked WhatsApp chat of Republic TV editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami, saying it is a breach of country’s internal security and demanded action against the TV journalist.

In its party mouthpiece Saamana, the Shiv Sena targeted the Bharatiya Janata Party over Arnab Goswami’s latest chat leaks.
Shiv Sena said that if talking about national knowledge is anti-national and it is an ’emergency-like situation’ to act on such issues, then it is important to investigate their concept of nationalism.

The purported WhatsApp conversation between Goswami and then Broadcast Audience Research Council chief executive Partho Dasgupta show that the former was apparently privy to the Modi government’s plan to launch an air strike on Pakistan’s Balakot in retaliation against the Pulwama terror attack, three days before the Indian Air Force bombed the terrorist camp on 26 February, 2019.
