Congress MP Gaurav Gogoi representing Kaliabor in Assam has turned down heavily on many media sections due to their alleged “exploitation” of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput for ratings.
Gogoi while launching a scathing attack on Twitter wrote, “Sushant Singh’s death could have been an inflection point to remove stigma around depression and start a positive debate on mental health esp given the influence of social media on youth. Yet we see a naked hunger and shameless exploitation for TRPs and political ambitions.”
Many of the MP’s followers agreed with him that the media circus around the actor’s death is nothing but a rat race for higher TRPs, others said that other angles such as murder can never be ruled out.
User Atul Asthana commented on Gogoi’s post stating, “Suffocating and now nauseating to watch this TRP race! What saddens more is that such talented journos can do so much for the betterment of the society but 99% of them are wasting their talent & time on trying to just please THE SHALLOW POWERED!”
Another user commented, “Yes, we cld have taught / learnt so much from the tragic death of a brilliant young man. Instead, we have exposed his weaknesses, his drug habits and financial excesses, his family issues and washed his dirty laundry in the media. This is disrespect for SSR, not justice for him.”
Meanwhile, NCB (Narcotics Control Bureau) while investigating the drug angle in the case told the Bombay High Court today that Rhea Chakraborty had brought in drugs and “concealed” Rajput’s drug habit. Hence Section 27A of the Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act providing punishment for financing drug trafficking and harbouring offenders was applicable against her.
