India Today says the Rahul Gandhi interview was recorded by Congress, and party has not given recording to the channel

As soon as the India Today interview of Rahul Gandhi was published, rumours took root that perhaps India Today withdrew the video interview and published a print interview instead

Earlier today, an interview of Congress president Rahul Gandhi was published by India Today channel. As soon as the interview was published, rumours took root that initially, India today was about to telecast a video interview of Rahul Gandhi, but since the interview was so bad, Congress insisted that a text interview be published instead.

Now, India Today has tweeted a clarification regarding the entire fiasco by asserting that there was never a video interview that was recorded.

India Today clarified that the channel was always publishing a print interview and that India Today has no video recording of the same.

The channel also clarified that Congress, however, recorded the entire interaction and that the channel, India Today, has no access to it.

Earlier, OpIndia had published an article with three pieces of evidence that suggested that perhaps India Today did intend to telecast a live interview of Rahul Gandhi but pulled out of it in the last minute. The evidence included a video segment from the channel that claimed that viewers would be able to watch the interview with Rahul Gandhi at 6:30 PM on 2nd May 2019. What is not yet clear from India Today’s explanation is why the television channel advertised for its viewers to ‘watch’ the interview on India Today TV on 2nd May, while the print interview was then published on 3rd May.
