Social media slams Rajdeep Sardesai for his soft-ball interview of the Yadavs

A few months back, Rajdeep Sardesai, had conducted a completely lame-duck “interview” of Sonia Gandhi. While India Today promoted it as the ‘Biggest interview of the decade’, it turned out to be the ‘fixed interview of the decade’. Questions were asked to Sonia Gandhi about Indira Gandhi and the various aspects of her life which Sonia remembered with surprising clarity. Rajdeep’s tone and body language remained extremely docile, supportive and probably sycophantic. He even repeated his “fought like a tigress” accolade for Sonia, revealing the tone of the interview.

Come 2017 Rajdeep seems to have repeated this feat with another soft-ball interview. This time it was a PR campaign an  interview with the Chief Minister of poll bound Uttar Pradesh Akhilesh Yadav. And to make sure he conveyed the family man image to the masses, Sardesai thought it apt to include Yadav’s wife and kids in the interview as well.

Social media though saw through his act and panned him:

Rajdeep asked some tough questions like: “Do you get to go on family holidays”, “favourite vacation spot”, “what is your favourite animal”. In all of this, Rajdeep missed out on the environment of the interview, which was an indoor sports facility replete with all sorts of sports gear, while the average Uttar Pradesh resident is still fighting for the basics.

Many on social media reminded Rajdeep Sardesai of his previous outbursts when he slammed other such “love-fest” interviews:

Some even pointed out the obvious difference in tone and tenor between Rajdeep’s above “love-fest” and his interview with Smriti Irani:

Perhaps its time for Sardesai to repeat his tweet from July 2014 once again, this time, targeting himself:
