TV Newsance Episode 96: PM Modi in Nimmoo

Your weekly dose of all the insanity that passes off as news on TV.

This week, we look at how TV news anchors got super excited about PM Modi’s visit to Nimmu in Ladakh. Sudhir Chaudhary, Amish Devgan and co. told us that this had never happened before in independent India, that no PM had ever visited a forward post. Fact check: That’s not true.
