Arnab Goswami had the Most Confidential information about the Pulwama & Balakot Air Strike. The information which has to be in between PM and IAF Chief only, A journalist knew about that. Who is Arnab Goswami? Deputy PM of India? 🙏#ArnabGoswami #RepublicTV pic.twitter.com/PYU45lhwZX— Rahul Bhardwaj (@_rahulism_) January 15, 2021
#ArnabGoswami, by all accounts, had prior information about the Balakot airstrikes, 3 days before it happened. The BJP govt has apparently been communicating crucial National Security decisions to Arnab so that he can prepare in advance to boost his channel's TRPs.

This whole #ArnabGoswami case should actually point at @narendramodi , if Pulwama was pre-planned & then Balakot was for elections then he must resign NOW. @ptrmadurai @mkstalin @Udhaystalin @isai_ @Anbil_Mahesh @DMKITwing pic.twitter.com/u04riJHr8B— Sam Anand (@anand_samuel) January 16, 2021
