Mumbai: The Maharashtra Government has sent a 60-page notice to Republic TV Chief Editor Arnab Goswami for continuously attacking the government in Sushant Singh Rajput case.
According to a Republic TV report, the Shiv Sena government has threatened to jail Arnab for false allegations against the ministers of the state without any evidence.
The privilege motion was moved by the Shiv Sena against Goswami in both the houses.
In response to the privilege motion moved against him, Goswami stated that he will continue to question Uddhav Thackeray and the elected representatives and contest the notice.
“I want to speak to the people of India. The Maharashtra assembly has sent me a 60-page letter asking me why I am questioning the chief minister, and threatening me with jail and breach of privilege. I have decided to fight this. I will continue to question Uddhav Thackeray and elected representatives and I will continue to fight them. I will fight them in the court, but never give in to such undemocratic practices. The constitution is not a gift given to anyone, it is the right of every citizen. I will continue to uphold that right, ask my questions and exercise the right to report,” read the statement released by Arnab.
