Alt News is a joint initiative by Unofficial Sususwamy and TruthOfGujarat. Alt News plans to be an anti-propaganda site and act as an antidote to the right-wing propagandists that have established themselves in the mainstream media. We will also cover news which the mainstream media often skips or provides inadequate coverage to such as caste-based atrocities, religious discrimination, labour struggles, farmer struggles etc. We plan to get subject matter experts to write on various issues such as public policy, legal matters and other trending issues.
TruthOfGujarat and Unofficial Sususwamy social media accounts have a combined reach of over 600,000 on Facebook and close to 180,000 on Twitter. We hope to utilise this reach that we have achieved over the past few years to bring focus on issues that the ordinary citizen of this country faces.
We are currently in the process of forming a registered company. We might reach out for donations to those who appreciate the work we do and would like to help us in this endeavour. Details about the company formation and more will be shared as soon as they are available.
The social media accounts of Alt News are as follows:
