(THE NEWSMAN OF INDIA.COM) Raipur, 05 March 2020
The news report being broadcast today with reference to the income tax raids by the Income tax department in Raipur is completely baseless and fake. In the news report, the news channel can be seen levying various false allegations on top officials and on the role of Chief Minister’s Secretariat. It is noteworthy, that Income tax department in its statement issued on March 2, 2020 has not mentioned anything about these allegations. This clearly proves the fact that the news channel is using it as an opportunity to malign and harness the corruption-free image of the government of Chhattisgarh. The news report is completely fake, baseless, inaccurate and non credible with no evidence.

During the raids also, the news Channel purposely broadcast fake news to tarnish the reputation of the Chhattisgarh government and government officials. The reports aired live, were a gross distortion of facts aimed at sensationalizing the subject. Instead of being objective and unbiased, the reporting done by the news channels were derogatory and degraded to the lowest level by being biased and judgmental. The state government’s statement was neither sought before broadcasting nor the sanctity of the profession of journalism was maintainted. The channel sacrificed the ideals of the profession for grabbing the highest TRP. The news channel breached the boundaries of professionalism, making it a sort of media trial where the sole purpose was to mislead the viewers by compromising with the ethics of Journalism. The Government of Chhattisgarh is all set to lodge a complaint against the channel in front of press forum about baseless and uncorroborated news being broadcast.
