Hothead jurist Markandey Katju again raked up a controversy by writing on his Facebook that many top journalists in India have sold their souls to Mammon and that many have acquired mega expensive entities to satisfy their Mammon as a result the country cannot expect fair news reporting of happenings.
Mr. Katju, well-known for his hardline takes on many issues went on to write, “Many of the top journalists in India have sold their souls to Mammon. They own huge bungalows, have huge bank balances, and have fancy chauffer driven cars. One is said to have acquired a huge house in Delhi reportedly worth Rs. 52 crores, another has a huge farm house near Delhi reportedly worth Rs. 50 crores”.
Katju lamented that, “Can one expect objectivity and fair reporting of the real problems of the people from them? Was Gen. V.K. Singh wrong?”
