Home Editor's picks Congress spokesperson Sanjay Jha threatens Arnab Goswami after his appointment to Nehru Museum

Congress spokesperson Sanjay Jha threatens Arnab Goswami after his appointment to Nehru Museum

Carrying forward the legacy of 'press freedom' and glorifying dissent in a democracy like Indira Gandhi did in her days, Jha has indeed spoken like a true Congressi.

Arnab Goswami has been a constant thorn for many a secular, liberal, dynasty admirers. For years, he has been screaming his way into their comfort zones of blissful sanctimony. As if the humiliating interview of Rahul Gandhi back in 2014 was not enough, the man has been rather hell-bent on dragging skeletons out of the Congress closets and has been questioning their eminent eliteness every evening with his insufferable ‘The nation wants to know’.

Now, like salt rubbing on their already painful wounds, the central government has appointed Goswami as a member of the coveted Nehru Memorial Museum and Library society, the powerful body which controls the Teen Murti Estate. JMML is now tasked with making a memorial for all the prime ministers of India, not just Nehru. Goswami is to replace Pratap Bhanu Mehta.

The outrage was bound to come. An interesting thing about the outrages was how brazenly can the critics of Arnab hail his appointment as a reward for his alleged ‘RSS sponsorship’ without admitting willfully that the people who were replaced were there because of a certain political favouritism. Well it seems, the cabal has the impunity to do it and defend it too. Because in the ‘idea of India’, some appointments are secular while some are communal.

The most remarkable outrage has come from Congress spokesperson Sanjay Jha, who has seemingly dismissed all subtlety and has shared a statement that is basically the Twitter way of saying ‘Dekh Lenge Tereko‘.

Arnab Goswami should be proud. He has just been added to the distinguished list of goals that Congress wants to accomplish if they come to power in 2019. Judging by the seriousness of Jha’s words, sacking Arnab should feature right on the top of the list, amongst establishing mobile factories in Bhopal/Chitrakoot/Jhunjhunu.

Carrying forward the legacy of ‘press freedom’ and glorifying ‘dissent in a democracy’ like Indira Gandhi did in her days, Jha has indeed spoken like a true Congressi.

There were others who criticised Arnab’s appointment, though none of them matched Sanjay Jha in terms of viciousness.

Arnab Goswami should be worried. With the kind of confidence Jha has about come back to power in 2019, he might as well be sacked from the channel he owns and he most certainly, will be sacked from his appointment to the Nehru Museum. One wonders if this outrage is about Arnab Goswami, the fact that Goswami refuses to toe the Congress line or that they believe Goswami would support turning the Nehru Museum into a place that showcases all past Prime Ministers of the Country and not just the liberal favourite Nehru.
