But what was the Congress tweeting about on the day that it is getting further wiped out in the North East? The PNB scam, the Rafale scam, and Smriti Irani's battle with DD. @OfficeofRG held its peace and did not tweet at all.

Doordarshan News did not adhere to Prasar Bharati's existing police guidelines of not covering political party functions live on August 15 this year, reportsThe Print.  It telecast live BJP president Amit Shah's efforts to unfurl the national flag at the BJP headquarters.
