The recent comment of one TV news anchor calling Aditya Thackeray Shiv Sena’s Rahul Gandhi, ridiculing both Thackeray and Rahul Gandhi is the clearest sign of the dismal state of the fourth pillar of democracy. Though she later on apologized to Aditya Thackeray and Shiv Sena, she didn’t do the same for Rahul Gandhi. The anchor must have realized the audacity of the protests she might face from Shiv Sena, though the same cannot happen from Rahul Gandhi. The pose Rahul Gandhi maintained despite the mockery tells a lot about his composed character.
