When I watch your questions and topics then i happy much time.your voice is very good .it always improvement my courage and hesitation.thank you l like you
you are doing good job.well done
I like her most the way she grills politicians and administrators. She must continue her fire brand image . She must keep in mind the downtrodden public when she is performing her duties . She must more pungent in debates . She can only rag the powerful personalities . Today in corona lock down , common public is wandering here there in want of foof,water,rehabilitation. All of a sudden lockdown done , public got no chance to return to their villages . They stuck between working place and home .
You are very brilliant,bold , commitment,speed,passion etc value and you are one across the india,I will praise you.aapaki vasase me aaj tak channel dekhata hu.
Chitra madam you are great… Aapka Show hum dhekhte hai aaj tak par. Aap jab markaj tabliki Muslim chup karati ho tab hamko bhahut aacha lagta hai. God bless you madam.
मुझे तो चित्रा त्रिपाठी बायस्ड लगती है, यह एन्टी मोदी है, यह कांग्रेस का पक्ष लेती हैं, यह राहुल का फ़ेवर करती नज़र आती है, ओर मेरी नज़र में यह एक घटिया पत्रकार है। पत्रकार का काम ईमानदारी से रिपोर्टिंग करना होता है और जो रिपोर्टर ईमानदारी से रिपोर्टिंग नहीं करता,बायस्ड रिपोर्टिंग करता या करती है वो बहुत ही घटिया बात होती है।
Good chitra ji. Going great in aaj tak channel. God bless u .keep going on. MY BEST WISHES TO U FOR UR BRIGHT FUTURE.
