AG: Indian government must make Jammu a separate state, Kashmir and Ladakh as Union Territories … means there can be no political parties and will be controlled forever by the Delhi based governor . Order in the next week. The curfew will be imposed two days before the order. It will automatically repeal Articles 370 and 35 A.
CEO: A large
AG: Sir, I have set Platinum standards for breaking and this story is ours. NSA and PMO meeting Monday
(The announcement was made to Parliament on August 5 and the Prime Minister, who met a delegation from the National Conference on August 2, denied any such plan.)
5 AUG 2019
AG: Operation Cashmere. Updates live from Ground Zero with 10 journalists through J&K… The Republic of Bharat receives live updates on the situation in the valley starting at 6:12 am.
CEO: Do not understand – just an increasing number of police in front of the houses of Omar and Mehbooba – does that mean house arrest? Did an official call him house arrest?
AG: Gazab ka hai din… socho zara
Omar: Hmm bhi akele
Mehbooba: Hum bhi akele
Amit Shah: Maza aa raha hai?
Audience: Kasam Se
CEO: Lodha Developers move in… Kashmir is now renamed Upper Haryana
CEO: Just a suggestion… don’t mix Hindi in the English channel. Southern viewers can start to change.
AG: Because my first flurry of journalists landing in Srinagar was from Bharat… today I was called by the NSA and asked me how I got the news… Doval met me before taking off for the Cashmere.
(Shows that Goswami used his advanced knowledge to position teams in Kashmir)
OCTOBER 14, 2019
Arnab Goswami: Chairman: Sourav Ganguly; Secretary: Jay Shah; Treasurer: Arun Dhumal. It really puts Rajat in his place. Has no influence and is now facing an investigation into corruption within the DDCA. No need to worry about him and his sub-standard channel.
Partho Dasgupta (CEO): But still on the IBF board … some seniors still think he is powerful.
AG: They will know after that. He had announced that he was taking over BCCI. Now he looks like a complete idiot… the solution is first to stop letting him get away with playing with the BARC system. He’s a cheater and now a cheater that even a member of Parliament doesn’t care about. Owner of a single channel with fading image.
CEO: Why does Uday keep him on the IBF board of directors?
AG: Because he told him that he will be the head of the BCCI.
(The BCCI election took place on October 23 and Ganguly and Shah, sons of Home Secretary Amit Shah, were elected president and secretary.)
The additional indictment filed by Mumbai police against former BARC chief Partho Dasgupta and Republic TV editor and owner Arnab Goswami includes conversations between the two over the past five years . Several hundred pages of discussions also include discussions between BARC officials and others. Goswami still has to deny them
