    The Newshour Debate: VIPs and visits - 2


    by timesnowonline

    Many politicians are flocking to Uttarakhand for a photo-op and at the same time they are questioning each other. 48 hours after Gujarat CM Narendra Modi, today (June 25) it was Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi's turn to make a sanitised visit to the flood hit areas. But, what is the distinction between their visits? Why can't they all simply stay away and let rescue teams do their job?

    In a debate moderated by TIMES NOW's Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami, panelists -- Dr Chandan Mitra, Editor-in-Chief, The Pioneer & MP, Rajya Sabha, BJP; Jaynarayan Vyas, Senior Leader, BJP; Renuka Chaudhary, Natl. Spokesperson & MP, Rajya Sabha Congress; Shaktisinh Gohil, Leader, Congress and Rahul Narvekar, Spokesperson, Shiv Sena -- discuss the issue whether a distinction be drawn between Narendra Modi's visit to to Uttarakhand on Sunday and Rahul's visit today.
