Govt Puts NDTV India Ban On Hold After It Files An Appeal. This Is How Twitter Reacted

AP2TG Staff

The one-day ban on NDTV’s Hindi channel, which was ordered as a penalty for coverage of an attack in January has been put on hold by Information and Broadcasting Minister Venkaiah Naidu. The Supreme Court announced it would hear NDTV appeal on Tuesday.

The government had  earlier maintained that the channel’s coverage had been against the national interest. The only reason given for the sudden turnaround was that the channel had filed an appeal. The ban kept on hold when the head/s of NDTV met Venkaiah Naidu and the fallout of the closed-door meeting.
