In recent times, we have seen many articles by international media organizations criticizing PM Modi and blaming the central government’s mismanagement for the surge in COVID cases.
Now, an article of The Daily Guardian by Sudesh Verma is in light from Tuesday, May 11, after many senior BJP leaders, including some Union Ministers, shared it on their respective Twitter handles. These leaders include BJP’s national in-charge of IT department Amit Malviya, MoS for Finance Anurag Thakur, former Chief Minister of Jharkhand Raghubar Das, MoS for Home Affairs G Kishan Reddy, and few others also.
The article by Sudesh Verma titles in capital, “PM MODI HAS BEEN WORKING HARD; DON’T GET TRAPPED IN THE OPPOSITION’S BARBS,” and praises the efforts by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to control the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Meanwhile, Netizens started trolling The Daily Guardian after Sudesh Verma is found to be the member of BJP’s national media team and he is also the author of the book: ‘Narendra Modi The Game Changer,’ which is also clearly visible through his Twitter profile.
Now, in an exclusive interaction with The Liberal Journal, Sudesh Verma has reacted to all the controversy regarding his article. When asked about his affiliation with BJP, Verma said, “Yes, I am a member of BJP and it is public. I have never hidden this. BJP leaders have shared my article because it is totally fact-based and refects the truth, it has nothing to do with my political affiliation.”
“Only a section of people have problem with my article, who can’t listen a single word in favour of our Prime Minister. It’s their hypocrisy that when any international media criticizes our government, they praise it, but when an India media writes something to praise our government, then they have problem with it,” Verma further added.
In defense of The Daily Guardian, Verma said, “It’s not the first time when I have written something for TDG, I have been writing for TDG since months. There’s no political inclination of The Daily Guardian.”
Well, started in February 2021, The Daily Guardian is the daily edition of The Sunday Guardian, owned by the ITV Network.
