Hindustan Times journalist accuses the media outlet of transferring her after Capt. Amrinder Singh’s complaint

Kaur alleged that she was transferred in the middle of her children's academic year and her contract was not renewed. She has also alleged that she has not been paid her August salary.

Sukhdeep Kaur, a journalist with Hindustan Times, has claimed that she was transferred to Delhi by the media outlet in the middle of her children’s academic session after Captain Amarinder Singh, Chief Minister of Punjab, complained to the chairperson of the company against her.

Kaur further claimed that her salary for the month of August was withheld after she refused to accept the transfer and her contract, which was due for renewal in September, hasn’t been renewed.

One of her reports from August speaks of an amendment to a bill that would have made the Punjab state government bear the tax liability for the perks enjoyed by Captain Amarinder Singh. The original bill passed by the Congress government earlier mandated that ministers in the state cabinet pay taxes on their own for the same.

While Hindustan Times is yet to issue a statement on the matter, it is a widely known fact that the nexus of Congress politicians and media houses run deep. While bigwigs in the media often accuse the BJP of undermining the media’s ability to report facts, Congress has long been known for gagging voices and using various tactics to create a compliant ecosystem.
