Ritu Dhawan, India TV MD & CEO confirmed the development. “We have accepted his resignation and asked Naqvi to serve his notice period,” she said, adding: “We are surprised at the reasons being attributed to it in the social media. Such reasons are baseless, and we condemn the effort being made to use it for political gains.”


India TV Chairman Rajat Sharma added: “There is a continuous attempt by some people to defame electronic media which has been officially condemned by broadcasters. We in the news media have covered several elections in the past and will cover many more, we cannot allow our industry to become a tool in the hands of interested parties during elections.”


Mr Naqvi, a seasoned campaigner in news television, had joined India TV in October 2013. While we are not sure of where he’s moving next, there are rumours that he may be in discussions with a political party to contest the elections.
