The media craze over Pradyot Manikya, the royal scion and Tipra Motha chief, still runs high amid the awaited assembly election results in Tripura. In a recent development, Pradyot Manikya has slammed Agartala journalists for spreading fake news about his meeting with Central leaders, especially Home Minister Amit Shah. He clarified that there was no such meeting and that the newspapers that published the news claiming his travel to Delhi were spreading false propaganda.
“I want to make it clear that I did not have any meeting with Amit Shah or any other Central leader. The news is entirely fake, and I don’t know where the media is getting their information from,” said Manikya.
The Tipra Motha supremo expressed his disappointment with the Tripura media for spreading such false propaganda and vowed to hold them accountable for their actions. He went on to say that if he ever produced a fiction movie in the future, he would consider hiring these journalists as scriptwriters.
“I am appalled at the level of fake news being spread by certain media outlets in Tripura. If they are so good at creating fictional stories, I will hire them as scriptwriters for my movies,” he said.
Manikya’s comments have once again highlighted the growing distrust between the media and politicians in the state. The media has been accused of being biased towards certain political parties and spreading propaganda to influence the voters’ opinions.
The incident serves as a reminder of the importance of responsible journalism and the need for the media to be held accountable for their actions. The media’s role is to report the facts and not to create stories that are misleading or false.
