Ritu Dhawan and Rajat Sharma on QW Naqvi's departure

India TV, in an official statement, has confirmed that its Editorial Director, QW Naqvi has resigned. Ritu Dhawan, MD & CEO, India TV confirmed, “We have accepted his resignation and have asked Naqvi to serve his notice period.”

She further said, “We are surprised at the reasons being attributed to it in the social media. Such reasons are baseless, and we condemn the effort being made to use it for political gains.”

Rajat Sharma, Chairman, India TV noted, “There is a continuous attempt by some people to defame the electronic media, which has been officially condemned by broadcasters. We, in the news media, have covered several elections in the past and will cover many more; we cannot allow our industry to become a tool in the hands of interested parties during elections.” 

As reported earlier, Naqvi has put in his papers as Editorial Director, India TV. He had joined India TV in October last year.
