“Congress has been a party with an ideology between right and left. But now it is being accused of not only including the ideology of the left but also their leaders. To understand my analysis and correct ideology on these issues, join my website #AageSeRight which will be launched on April 17 i.e. #Ramnavami,” he wrote on X.

While the reason behind Chaurasia’s Zee exit isn’t clear, Newslaundry earlier reported on a string of resignations and sackings at the network over a financial crunch. 

The anchor, who left News Nation amid controversial circumstances in 2021, was earlier expected to return to the television screen with a primetime show on Bharat Express.

However, an email sent to Zee News staff by the channel’s HR department in January announced his entry as a consulting editor and anchor.

Chaurasia, who has previously worked with Aaj Tak, ABP News and India News in a nearly three-decade career, had joined News Nation in 2019 and left in December 2021, shortly after anchoring a show in a purportedly inebriated state. He was the TV channel’s consulting editor at the time.
