26 CRPF personnel have been killed in a dastardly attack by Maoists in the Sukma district in Chattisgarh. Reportedly, the attack took place at around 12.25pm between the Burkapal-Chintagufa area in south Bastar. From Kashmir to Bastar, there’s an uptick in separatist attacks and Naxal attacks despite PM Modi assuring us that demonetization had neutralised Pak-based terrorism, Separatism in Kashmir and Naxalism in the Maoist-affected areas. Shouldn’t this be considered a failure of Home Minister (HM) Kanhaiya Kumar and National Security Advisor (NSA) Umar Khalid? Shouldn’t they resign because people now claim that PM Modi’s claims vis-a-vis demonetisation were nothing but attempts to bluff the Indian populace? Please watch the following clip where Times Now peels the skin of Mr Kumar’s and Mr Khalid’s back for their complete failure as HM and NSA.

Times Now has never shied away from questioning the Govt. They are the only channel which has consistently questioned the powerful. In April 2014, when an attacked happened in the same region, Times Now had boldly questioned UPA Home Ministers P Chidambaram, Shivraj Patil and Sushil Kumar Shinde.

For such bold journalism, people flocked to Times Now’s Twitter timeline and showered them with praises. We have captured some of the wonderful comments left by admirers of Times Now.
Even Rajdeep Sardesai, a consulting editor with India Today, was over-joyed with Times Now’s journalism and appreciated their effort. India Today’s Gaurav Sawant must not be happy that a Senior Editor from his channel is appreciating a competing channel’s journalism style which is usually his forte.
Enthused by the unprecedented love showered by Times Now enthusiasts, Times Now has pledged to carry their bold journalism forever and ever. They will not rest till Home Minister Kanhaiya Kumar and National Security Advisor Umar Khalid tender their resignation. Bravo!
