Condemning the arrest of Republic Media Network’s Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar said that his arrest is against the interest of a democratic institution.
The Haryana CM added that Arnab’s arrest was an attack on press freedom and should not have been done.
Addressing a press conference he said, “In a democracy, everyone has the freedom of expression. There is a limit and if no one is crossing that, then it is fine. Even Opposition leaders speak against each other. He (Arnab) has not breached any limit. Through his channel, he just puts his view forth. His arrest is not in the interest of a democratic institution. He should not have been arrested. If anyone had any issues, they should have filed a complaint. The way police had arrested him, it should not have been done.”
