Retired Justice Markandey Katju who is always in news for his witty comments on his Facebook account and amazing wisdom is once again in news for taking down the Prime Time screaming anchor Arnab Goswami after he was provided ‘Y’ Security by Government over some threats he received.
Mr. Katju said “This joker who has nothing in his head except his arrogance will get 20 guards night and day by the Govt. for his security
Hari Om” in his Facebook post
and continued by saying “Why should Arnab Goswamy be provided Govt. security, and that too of the Y category, which means 20 guards will be with him day and night. Who will pay the salaries of these guards ? It will be the government, which really means the public, because these salaries come from the taxes we pay. So we will have to pay for Arnab’s security.
Arnab is surely getting a huge salary from his employer. Why should he not pay for his security from his own pocket ? There are many private security agencies which provide armed guards. Why did Arnab not hire them ? Or else his employer, which is a very affluent business house, could have done so
I believe some other mediapersons wh,o toe the govt.line have also been provided similar security by the Govt. Is this not deplorable ? Must the public for these hired ‘tattoos’ and buffoons ?”
Even Twitterati took down on Arnab Goswami with hashtag #TommyGetsSecurity yesterday which was trending for a while.
