Gujarat riots coverage: Rajdeep Sardesai attacks Arnab on #Fekugiri

NEW DELHI: Veteran journalist, Rajdeep Sardesai posted an old video of his ex-colleague, Arnab Goswami calling  him a ‘feku’ for his claims of being in trouble while covering the Gujarat riots for NDTV in 2002.

Sardesai, who worked in extremely difficult circumstances to report the Gujarat genocide of 2002, wrote, “Wow! My friend Arnab claims his car attacked next to CM Res in Guj riots! Truth:he wasn’t covering Ahmedabad riots!!” adding, “Fekugiri has its limits, but seeing this, I feel sorry for my profession.”

Sardesai has called it ‘fekugiri’ implying that there was ‘no truth’ to the former journalist’s claims.

Sardesai said that the incident which Goswami spoke about ‘how he was in trouble’ indeed had taken place but it is not Arnab and was Sardesai himself with whom the incident happened.

He wrote on Twitter, “Am told Arnab speech on Guj riots made to an audience in Assam when Cong in power! Am I surprised? Post truth society mein sab chalta hai!”
