NDTV changes headline after their dishonesty is caught on Twitter

This is not the first time that NDTV has resorted to spreading fake news

In a tweet, NDTV claimed that a BJP leader, Gyan Dev Ahuja, was caught distributing money at a rally and charged with violation of poll code. However, he had quit the party after being denied a ticket.

Twitter users were quick to point out the flaw in NDTV’s tweet.

NDTV then tweeted the correct version of events as a reply to the previous tweet. The original tweet which claimed Ahuja is a BJP leader hasn’t been deleted at the time of writing this report.

This isn’t the first time NDTV has spread Fake News. We have documented NDTV’s incompetence extensively here at OpIndia.com. In the past, they have even shared a satirical piece by UnReal Times as authentic news.

Update on 23rd November 2018: Just three days after Gyan Dev Ahuja had resigned from the party after being denied a ticket, he has rejoined the party. He had filed his nomination as an independent candidate and that too has been withdrawn by him. He has now been appointed BJP’s state vice president for Rajasthan.
