Jamnagar, Nov 15: Zee News journalists and the production team were attacked by Congress workers on Tuesday during the filming of its show ‘Game of Gujarat’. A question on the purported sex CD of Patidar leader Hardik Patel provoked the workers to take law into their hand. They threatened that they won’t let the shooting happen on Wednesday. However, undeterred Zee News staff has said that they won’t let their voice be muffled, and they will record the show.
Zee News anchor Aman Chopra, reporter Vishal Pandey and other members of the Zee Crew were holding a debate in Jamnagar. They were interrupted in between. The attackers including women held Aman Chopra by his collar. Zee News employees showed grace and caution even in the face of adversity as they sought to calm the agitators down. However, they say that nobody can stop them from asking questions.
Aman Chopra and Vishal Pandey said that the behaviour was shocking. They said they will continue asking tough questions.
Congress leaders have condemned the incident, but they have not apologised for their behaviour. Uttar Pradesh Congress president Raj Babbar, communication cell head Randeep Singh Surjewala and MLA Akhilesh Pratap Singh refused to comment on the incident. Many leaders said that they had no information about the incident.
