Controversial journalist Rajdeep Sardesai thinks that among others, Prime Minister Narendra Modi should also thank Masood Azhar for contributing to the BJP win.

Rajdeep Sardesai’s snide remark was on a show on The Lallantop, a ‘new age channel’ owned by the India Today group. Sardesai could be heard saying “Amit Shah ko thank you card dena chahiye, Rahul Gandhi ko, Congress party ko, Masood Azhar ko, jis tarah se unhone apni atankwadi gatividiyan ki. Phir ek thank you card hai media ko, Election Commission ko…”
Sardesai said that PM Modi should thank the party president Amit Shah, Congress President Rahul Gandhi and the Congress party for contributing to his victory. He even said that Modi should thank Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Masood Azhar for his terrorist activities.
He was referring to the Pulwama terror attack which claimed lives of 40 CRPF jawans in February this year which was carried out by the Pakistan-based terror organisation Jaish-e-Mohammad. Sardesai is implying that it was because of the terror attack that the BJP swept the Lok Sabha elections.
Rajdeep has for the longest time been a faithful soldier of the Congress party within the media. He lies regularly, demonises Modi and even has a long illustrious career of spreading propaganda. He has paltry respect for other journalists who don’t wish to behave like ruffians like himself (one recalls his punching fiasco at Madison Square Garden) and conduct interviews with dignity when it comes to PM Modi while he himself crawls in front of the Dynasty.
Clearly, Narendra Modi coming back to power has not really sunk in well for Sardesai.
