NEW DELHI - Almost a week after Zee News promptly shut the Congress on false charges of doctoring a video, a live video done by editor-in-chief Sudhir Chaudhary went viral on social media with the audience appreciating his stance.
A video last week showed 'Pakistan Zindabad' slogans being raised at an election rally addressed by senior Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu. After Zee News brought to light the video, the Congress leaders remained defiant and instead accused Zee News of playing a 'fake video'.
After the stand taken by Zee News amidst the accusations by Congress, Sudhir Chaudhary made a live video on social media platform Facebook and reiterated that the stand taken by the media organisation is influenced by truth and truth alone. The video has garnered the support of thousands of people on the social media platform.
