The Congress party shocked everyone when it decided not to send its spokespersons to television debates for a month.Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said in a statement, “The Congress has decided to not send spokespersons on television debates for a month. All media channels/editors are requested to not place Congress representatives on their shows.”Though the party has not made clear the reason behind this decision, it looks like the party doesn’t want to engage until a consensus is reached on Rahul Gandhi’s resignation.There are also views that the decision was made to protest “pro-Modi”, “Godi media”.Whatever be the reason, while some Twitter users applauded this decision, others argued it isn’t fair nor does it look good for the party.Journalist Sanjukta Basu said it is a “strong sensible decision from Congress.”“I would say, make it long term. Let us see where would media find its fodder then,” she added.Journalist Manisha Pande took a sarcastic dig at TV channels. “I don't think the pro-Modi section of TV media even needs Congress spokespersons to continue to punch at the party/Opposition,” she tweeted.Journalist Rajdeep Sardesai had a different opinion. “Can understand the aversion to media ‘lynching’ being carried out in the guise of ‘news’ on some channels but a total boycott is no solution either,” he said.But a few Twitter users disagreed. Journalist Nikhil Wagle said “Godi media has become more sycophantic after 23rd May.”“What is the option when most of the anchors act as BJP spokespersons,” he asked.“Why don’t you guys have only BJP people,” another Twitter user asked.Journalist Bhupendra Chaubey said the first step towards solving a problem is first to identify the problem itself. “Indian democracy will improve if Opposition regains its mojo,” he said.Journalist Abhinandan Sekhri said that the news media is the one that has to regain its mojo if the Indian democracy is to be served better.Then there were some sarcastic tweets too.AAP MLA Saurabh Bharadwaj said, “Those liberal left leaning "Punching Bags" who join Arnabs debate should also shun.” We'll get through this!
