Times Now slammed for stoking a needless controversy over bureaucratic ‘behaviour’ in MP

English news channel Times Now on Tuesday decided to take the case of the Women and Child Development department in Madhya Pradesh’s Devas, over some of its employees celebrating their colleagues’ birthday in the office by dancing while a song was playing in the background:

With the tagline, “Women and Child department turns party hub” flashing on the screen, the anchor was seen commenting that less work and more celebration was going on in the office. The correspondent too toed a similar line by commenting that the government officials needed to understand that it was more important to work than make merry. He also claimed that following the incident, the District Magistrate has promised a probe.

Soon questions were raised by various social media individuals over the officials being unnecessary targeted for what looked like an innocent bit of fun on a joyous occasion:

Parallels were also drawn with the private sector where some companies encourage a daily dance activity for five minutes to induce positive energy in the employees:

People also called out the “holier than thou” behaviour of the media, when it itself is known for organising various festivals or events, some of which have been marred by molestation charges:

It remains to be seen as to what are the findings of the probe by the District Magistrate and whether the administration would be forced to take some action following the unnecessary focus by the media.
