VPP joining NDA a fake news, says channel

Party to file FIR

Shillong, Apr 18: Northeast Live TV has clarified  as fake screenshot on VPP joining NDA after the polls.

In a statement issued here on Thursday, the satelite channel sad, “It has come to the notice of Northeast Live TV, Guwahati, that a screenshot is in wide circulation in Shillong and other parts of East Khasi Hills showing a picture of a fake clipping attributed to our channel that says that Meghalaya-based regional party, VPP is likely to join the NDA after June 4. We would like to put it on record that the text in the content is doctored and Northeast Live has never broadcast or published any such news”.


The news editor Nabarun Goswami said upon careful examination, the channel wanted to emphasise that the screenshot does not align with “our standard practices of watermark placement and font usage. Our watermark is consistently positioned on the left corner of our visuals, whereas the screenshot displays a watermark on the right of the screen. Additionally, the font size used in the lower ticker and the half plate of the screenshot differs from our standard style, further indicating discrepancies”, said the channel.

“The circulation of this fake content just ahead of polls is shocking and unfortunate and seems to have been done with malicious intent. Northeast Live, the region’s only English and a Hindi satellite channel, believes in objectivity and putting truth first at all times.We strongly condemn the circulation of this fake content,done to malign the image of the channel. We further urge authorities to take appropriate action in the matter”, the channel said.


VPP spokesperson Batskhem Myrboh said  the party condemns the creation and circulation of the fake and doctored image implicating the Party to have an association with the BJP. The North East Live Channel has issued a statement proving the image to be maliciously created with an ill intention.

“The party strongly condemns the criminals responsible for such an illegal activity and stern action will be initiated against them. An FIR is initiated in this regard”, Myrboh said.
