Anjana Om Kashyap trolled for entering hospital's ICU
Twitter did not like Anjana Om Kashyap's 'hospital journalism'.
The state of Bihar is reeling under severe encephalitis outbreak killing 126 children. Of them, 108 are from Muzaffarpur. The Bihar government is being criticized for the lack of preparedness for this crisis which has taken so many innocent lives.
This is journalism of courage by @aajtak. Heckling the nurses and doctors and creating nuisance inside a hospital award. If they show even one hundredth of this aggression in questioning politicians, then it'd be quite an achievement. pic.twitter.com/BSEyiwNnTZ— Pratik Sinha (@free_thinker) June 18, 2019
To report on this epidemic Aaj Tak anchor Anjana Om Kashyap entered the ICU room of Sri Krishna Medical College and Hospital of Muzaffarpur and started questioning doctors for their alleged inability to attend the patients. This kicked up a controversy on social media with many lambasting Kashyup for disturbing the patients and heckling doctors during the treatment.
Netizens are also censuring the anchor for not asking the tough questions to the politicians in power.

Ask this question from ur favourite Party, its allys & your favourite PM too !
This journalist was not trying to address the actual issue of poor health infrastructure in our country,, rather she was very rudely talking to the only doctor who was putting his life there in treating those sick children. #AnjanaOmKashyap pic.twitter.com/duPegV2lbk— Rishabh Rathore (@RishabhRathore_) June 19, 2019
