Taking to Twitter, Sanjay Jha wrote: "When he was in Times Now after one of our TV debates, Arnab Goswami begged of me to get an exclusive byte of Mrs Sonia Gandhi. I didn’t say yes or no because that was not my decision. But here’s the catch, Arnab promised to change his trajectory in return. More in my book."
Arnab Goswami had accused Congress Interim President Sonia Gandhi of being silent on the mob lynching incident which took place in Maharashtra's Palghar on the night of April 16. In a TV debate, Goswami said that Sonia Gandhi would not have remained silent if Christian padres would have been the victims.
