    After the Faux Pas on Twitter where Rajdeep Sardeai wrote that due to 21 deaths Assam coverage was less than Gujarat where over a 1000 died in the communal violence, now he is making an attempt to justify the low level coverage of the Assam riots.

    Tyranny of distance Why media covered Guj more than Assam - Page 1 | Firstpost

    Lies and half truths make up the whole article.

    Mr.Sardesai writes,
    For Mary Kom, all the major channels were able to land a her village in Manipur in matter of hours. OB vans or no OB Vans. M.Sardesai, Indian medai has covered events in Egypt, Libya where there were no OB Vans present so how come you could not cover the Assam violence. It is further difficult to understand that there must be a stringer attached to IBN Network in NE. Also the national media could have picked up the feed from the regional channels as they do in cases of masala news.

    I would suggest M.Sardesai to come to DFI and read the various links posted by members here which have proved beyond doubt the demographic explosion of a particular community.

    written by Rajdeep Sardesai, another PAID news media slave trying to protect his boss tarun gogoi's inept handling of the situation and shifting the blame onto others.

    Who made Bodos a minority in their own land, mister rajdeep sardesai?
    Its the congress party which invites foreign nationals to settle, in return for votes.

    Now who should be held responsible for the assam violence mister rajdeep?
    Answer truthfully
