NDTV does what it does best: First spreads falsehood over Vande Bharat Express, now twists PM Modi’s statement

The Vande Bharat Express had successfully completed its first commercial run on the very next day without any snag. However, the people who were so vocally mocking the failure were nowhere to be seen to appreciate the successful commercial runs of India's fastest train.

Keeping up with their past record of twisting statements and creating fake news, the controversial media portal NDTV has again twisted a statement by the Prime Minister and made it into a misleading headline.

The controversial NDTV, often known for propagating fake news deliberately indulged in propagating false claims after it twisted the statements of the Prime Minister to suit its political narrative. NDTV, in its attempt to target the PM, reported with a misleading headline indicating that PM Modi sought punishment against people whosoever mocked Train-18.

A misleading headline by the NDTV to target PM Modi

In reality, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday had hit out at people who were mocking Vande Bharat Express, the fastest train of India, which had faced an external hit on the trial run on Saturday and stopped for a while. He had termed the comments against the train an “insult” to efforts of engineers and technicians.

The PM had said, “I salute engineering professionals, who will in future make a bullet train in India and run it too. I am getting a letter of people who are hurt”, the PM said asking them, “Is it right to insult engineers and technicians? Is mocking them right. Can they be pardoned? Should they not be given the right punishment at the right time?”

However, the PM’s statement was for the people to ‘punish’ the naysayers and mockers of hardworking Indian engineers and technicians. It is clear from his statement that he was asking the people of India to ‘punish’ the politicians by not voting for them.

NDTV’s sly attempt to peddle anti-Modi propaganda with a misleading headline was also called out by many on social media.

Congress President Rahul Gandhi, SP chief Akhilesh Yadav, and many others had used the event of technical slag of Train-18 to target the NDA government. They had even gone ahead to brand ‘Make In India’ a failure and had mocked Prime Minister Narendra Modi over reports of India’s fastest train, Vande Bharat Express suffering a breakdown.

Earlier, In a rush to discredit the success of India’s fastest train ‘Vande Bharat Express‘, the Congress-backed left-wing channel had deliberately ignored the fact of the cattle hit and presented their report as if Train-18 had stopped due to an internal technical fault while trying to discredit NDA government for its successful initiative.

The Vande Bharat Express had successfully completed its first commercial run on the very next day without any snag. However, the people who were so vocally mocking the failure were nowhere to be seen to appreciate the successful commercial runs of India’s fastest train.

The report was retweeted and shared by actor-turned-politician Divya Spandana, who is also Congress IT cell chief,  to not only propagate fake news but to pass some insensitive statements regarding the recent Pulwama terror attack.
