Covid-19 crisis: why has Rahul Gandhi become a journalist?

May 01, 2020 00:19 IST

He has often accused journalists of not asking pertinent questions to the government. Enough of attacks on media, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has decided to take matters in his own hands. He has become a journalist.
