On 16th August yesterday, India’s former PM Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ji took his last breath. This day shall be marked as the most emotional day in Indian politics. While Indians were flooding social media with poems and quotes written by Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee, journalists running behind on their monthly target, took the opportunity to write multiple articles about the greatness of Jawahar Lal Nehru instead.
It has been over half a century since India lost Nehru, however, some journalists have kept him alive far longer than his secret ailments should have ever allowed. If sources are to be believed, many media houses have been strongly advised to talk about Jawahar Lal Nehru as he might be feeling insecure up there, especially after seeing the widespread admiration for Vajpayee Ji.
Soon after people started declaring Atal Ji as the best PM, notorious journo couple Rajdeep and Sagarika were spotted showing early signs of constipation. As a result, they spent an entire night gulping down laxatives while simultaneously relieving their bowels, by ‘dropping’ a ‘load’ of articles. The duo ‘dug deep’ and managed to find rare moments where Atal Ji had remotely praised the Gandhi dynasty.
While articles started pouring in support of Nehru, there was one person who couldn’t live up to her employer’s expectations. Rupa, a journalist working for an infamous media house, was sacked after she failed to mention Nehru in her write-up commemorating Atal Ji.
Our internal sources got their hands on a copy of the article which was later removed, citing irregularities with the core principles of the media house. Not only did Rupa make a blunder by forgetting to hail Nehru, she also went on to praise Atal Ji’s decision on the Pokhran’s Parmanu Test, thus inviting more trouble. After reading this, her boss fired her from office and threatened others to strictly follow the guidelines they get from 10 Janpath, lest they face the same consequences.
This is not the first instance where a journalist has been fired for a small mistake. Earlier a cameraman was fired after he focused the lens on Congress President Rahul Gandhi, who was seen smiling at a funeral.
