Maharashtra government mulls action against Arnab Goswami over leaked chats

The purported WhatsApp conversations between Republic TV’s Arnab Goswami and former BARC CEO Partho Dasgupta, annexed in a supplementary chargesheet filed by the Mumbai police in the TRP scam, have enabled us to take a good look at the power games that have mushroomed under the Narendra Modi government.

They have also confirmed what many have long suspected: that behind the jingoistic clamour of Indian TV news rests a network of opportunistic brokers and middlemen whose sole ambition is to line their pockets and hanker after power.

However, the revelations have also produced speculations that are half-baked. The most popular one so far is that Goswami’s chats establish that the anchor had prior knowledge of the Balakot air strike of February 2019, and possibly, the revocation of Article 370 six months later. In other words, he was privy to a top secret military operation and a political decision with grave security implications.
