Prominent Indian journalist Abhigyan Prakash is stirring controversy on the internet after being caught smoking a cigarette in the midst of a live debate on news channel Times Now.
Journalist caught smoking on live news debate
Just when you though Major General GD Bakshi’s explicit comments were outlandish enough on live TV last week, viral footage has emerged of Abhigyan Prakash, Senior Executive Editor of ABP News, seen smoking a cigarette prior to his introduction on the ‘Nation Wants To Know’ segment on the Times Now channel, hosted by its Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami.
A lot of viewers took to the internet to share their rage after seeing Prakash’s move, putting Times Now’s credibility and appropriate television standards into question. Some joked it isn’t the first time a guest debater has been caught off guard, while some laughed it off as a blooper.
