New Delhi: Times Now Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami is being provided Y-category security by the government on the basis of a threat from a “Pakistan-based terror groups”, the Hindustan Times reported.
The television journalist has always been accused of being very soft and quite selectively partial towards the RSS and the Centre’s BJP government will now get round-the-clock protection from around 20 security personnel including two personal security officers.
His harsh and heavy shouting behaviour and letting nobody answer on screen has earned him plenty of flak from his critics.
After the news of Arnab Goswami being considered for Y category security cover appeared, hashtag #TommyGetsSecurity started trending against the Times Now anchor and has became a top trend in no time.
Here are some of the social media reactions;
We pay highest taxes
High fuel prices
High rail fares
High commodity prices
