The senior BJP leader and Rajya Sabha MP had slammed Goswami in his tweet. Firstpost writes that Swamy told the publication that his advice of not naming the venture ‘Republic’ was ignored by media baron and BJP MP Rajeev Chandrashekhar – one of the investors in Goswami’s venture.

On January 28 Goswami wrote to the I&B Ministry stating that the name of the venture has been changed.

 

 

Swamy tweeted the letter on January 30 with a jibe at Goswami.
