Development 1: Most media channels black out Kapil Sibal's press conference on Amit Shah's son. Among the newspapers, save the Hindu and Indian express, all other main newspapers have framed the story as Amit Shah's son being the 'person in distress' who is now going to sue The Wire. They have decided not to report the figures cited in The Wire story about the windfall for Jay Shah's company.
You can't expect much from 'godi media'.
Development 2: A government lawyer, Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, will fight Jay Shah's case and surprise, surprise, there are special laws for this to happens. Section 5(a) and (b) of the Service Rules of 1987 allow him to do so legally.
Development 3: BJP IT cell, India's most hated troll-terror group, is rolling ahead with its usual 'target the accuser' campaign:
Step 1: Discredit the author (call them fake news agents and go in their past)
Step 2: Label them with the usual 'commie' word (They have called The Wire a left lunatic outlet, the The Wire's founders as naxalites)
Step 3: Explain why there's nothing wroting with what was done.
They are tweeting there is nothing wrong with a commodities business (loss making ) being given generous funding for a renewable energy project. (FYI, a Reliance person gave the generous loan)
The BJP IT Cell have dutifully created a hashtag campaign and gotten their 'troll army' to copy paste tweets that have come straight from a template factory outlet.
The time is near when the Streisand effect will make sure more Indians will become aware of the shit they will try to scare off. FYI, the Streisand effect is the phenomenon whereby an attempt to hide, remove, or censor a piece of information has the unintended consequence of publicizing the information more widely, usually facilitated by the Internet.
