IN Media Watch Briefs | 30/03/2018
Karnataka BJP MP Prahlad Joshi  mis-translated BJP President Amit Shah's pre-election rally speech to say: 'Prime Minister Modi has done nothing for the poor and dalits, he will destroy the nation' when Shah actually said, in Hindi, that Cong Chief Minister Siddharamaiah had done nothing for Karnataka! Times Now has a clip on the meeting but sadly, the clip ends abruptly just at the crucial part!
