The Print’s founder and Editor-in-Chief Shekhar Gupta shared the latest column of Yadav Wednesday evening.
Now, here comes the interesting part.
The Print’s columnist Abhijit Iyer-Mitra has written a sexually loaded tweet in June last year. Social media uproar followed.
Result? Iyer-Mitra was dropped as a columnist at ThePrint.
He is known for his anti-Left views.
Yadav has been trying hard to deflect any accountability for misdeeds in the farmers’ protest.
