NDTV, which has in past appeared to be using ‘ads for call girls’ for attracting revenue traffic and then denying and blaming it on oversight, has won ‘Best English News Channel’ award at the ENBA event concluded last night. However, looking at the jury members who conferred the award, many Twitter users took it as an opportunity to take a jibe at NDTV. Among other jury members, two names which stood out were Raghav Chadha, National Treasurer, Aam Aadmi Party who likes to give defamatory statements in his free time, and Sanjay Jha, Congress spokesperson who also shares fake pictures on Twitter.
Some of the reactions of twitterati were amusing.

While others brought in the data.
5th in the BARC ratings n 1/4th the viewership of @republic (Republic itself will have a fraction of Hindi channels). Seems only the jury watches this Congi channel or poll was done in Pakistan. https://t.co/Xt5o3Az25d

While NDTV may have won the award, we all know which channel most people tune in to, to love it or hate it.
