Investigative journalism is need of the hour in Haryana
Investigative journalism is more needed in Haryana schools than recitation of Gayatri Mantras and Geeta shloks.

Haryana government led by RSS Parcharak Manohar Lal Khattar has made recitation of Gaytari Mantras and Geeta shlokas compulsory in schools. Having covered Haryana for forty years and having closely watched the style of functioning of successive chief minsters of the state, I feel that that investigative journalism is more needed than these gimmicks.

Unholy nexus of politicians and officers is looting the state's resources. An honest journalist has the credibility and honesty to publish the information contained in top secret government documents that come to him. I daily read about twenty Hindi, English and Punjabi newspapers covering Haryana but only occasionally find any investigative report. Mainstream media is hungry for TRPs. So, social media remains as the only silver lining in this dark era.
