Arnab Goswami and Prashant Bhushan belong to that stratum of national personalities who stay in the news for their blunt words and fearless attitude when it comes to criticizing. This is not the first time that these men felt inclined to comment on each other’s ethics. Prashant Bhushan is back with even more scandalous comments on the right wing’s favorite journalist, Arnab Goswami.
A renowned lawyer and founding member of Swaraj Abhiyan, Prashant Bhushan has attacked the Republic channel and called its star journalist, Arnab Goswami, a “terrorist”, a “pseudo-nationalist”, and a “lapdog of the government” which is a direct remark on his affiliations with BJP.
Goswami’s ‘Republic’ is a ‘terrorist’ channel masquerading as media.Pseudo Nationalist,Jingoistic lapdog of the govt https://t.co/vv3xDyMhG8Advertisement

Prashant Bhushan’s tweet seemed full of wrath and not at all subtle. His statement came in the light of a recent complaint submitted to a press conference by anti-nuclear activist Dr. S.P. Udayakumaran. He said that Republic TV and its reporters are harassing him and his family.
Read the full report in Dr. S.P. Udayakumaran’s Facebook post below.
Prashant Bhushan has been receiving mixed reactions on the inflammatory tweet posted by him. The influence of Arnab Goswami and his idea of nationalism have gained a number of supporters throughout the country. Keeping in mind the fact that our current government professes the idea of nationalism and patriotism over everything, the formation of polar groups is not surprising.
It is notable that only a few days back, he accused Republic TV of being funded by the NDA. However, for now, the Swaraj Abhiyan politician has received a counterattack from Twitter trolls. Check them out:

आप तो वो महान संत हो जो आतंकवादी के लिए रात तो कोर्ट खुलवाते हो, और टेररिस्ट Republic चेनल को बोलते हो. पैसे के लिए तुम देश भी बेच सकते हो
