New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Sunday (July 18, 2021) hit out at Newsclick and said that their only agenda is to defame India. Addressing a press conference, BJP’s National Spokesperson Sambit Patra said that Newsclick is a portal which ‘tries to portray itself as a media house’.
“The only agenda of these so-called portals and Newsclick is to spread the propaganda of a foreign nation and defame India. Some foreign powers and Indian politicians have teamed up to spread unrest. This is a part of an international toolkit,” Patra said.
The BJP leader also alleged that Newsclick received crores of rupees from abroad in a suspicious manner with a motive to portray India’s system as a failed one and spread foreign propaganda in India.
He also commented said that the Supreme Court and the High Court have given permission to carry out the Central Vista project, but still some people went ahead with their agenda of demeaning the project.
“It is only because of foreign funding,” the BJP spokesperson added.
