Sagarika Ghose gets called out by the author she abused for asking tough questions to Rahul Gandhi

The story of controversial journalist Sagarika Ghose and Singapore based author Prasenjit Basu who posed a tough question to Rahul Gandhi during the latter’s visit to the county doesn’t seem to be ending.

We had reported yesterday how Ms Ghose had launched an abusive, elitist and anti-Hindu tirade against Mr Basu, for asking a question which stumped the Congress President.

The question posed pertained to asking Rahul why India’s per capita income grew slower as compared to the world when “his family” was in power. It was followed up by asking why did the per capita income see a much faster growth soon after Rahul’s family relinquished the Prime Ministerial position of the country. The Gandhi dynast failed to come up with a convincing answer and the Congress later put up a doctored video to mitigate the damage.

This “humiliation” had possibly caused a lot of grief who put out this tweet:


The hatred, contempt and elitism dripping from the tweet surprised many including Union Minister Babul Supriyo who expressed grief at Ms Ghose’s manner of expressing disagreement.

Prasenjit Basu the author, decided to respond to this tweet by revealing that he and Sagarika were students at the same college and had even acted in various plays together, including one which was directed by Sagarika’s father Bhaskar Ghose. He even claimed that they were close friends:


This “candid admission” though irked Ms Ghose who soon decided to refute his claims of being “close friends”, and co-actors in multiple plays:


Basu though wasn’t willing to take it lying down and proceeded to call out her “selective amnesia” by claiming that her father had directed the play Troilus and Cressida, where they had both acted. He then proceeded to mock her as a Congress stooge masquerading as a journalist:


Ms Ghose though hasn’t yet come back with a response to Basu’s latest allegations, which includes any sort of a denial of the same.
