Kapil Sibal, wife face allegations from top journalist
Barkha Dutt, one of the most prominent journalists in India, has taken to Twitter to make a series of allegations against Kapil Sibal and his wife. Sibal, a senior Congress leader and former Union Minister, is a promoter of Tiranga TV, an English-language news channel.
As per Barkha, Sibal and his wife have decided to shut down the channel without paying the salaries of about 200 employees! "An appalling situation in Tiranga TV, promoted by Sibal and his wife, where more than 200 employees have had equipment confiscated and face sackings without even a 6-month payout. Man who acts holier than though in public has treated journalists in a hideous way. Most people here gave up other offers or left jobs on an assurance from Sibal of a professionally-run newsroom and a minimum tenure of two years. Neither husband nor wife have even showed up to talk to staff," Barkha tweeted out.
As per latest reports, Sibal has called for a meeting of the 200 employees.
