Clarification: The Vinod Dua Show – Episode 7
HW News Network on 20th December 2018 had aired the 7th Episode of Vinod Dua which carried a clipping of an interview with Road Transport &Highways, Shipping and Water Resources Minister Nitin Gadkari. That clip was erroneously sent incomplete to Mr Dua, based on which Mr. Vinod Dua conveyed his comments. Mr Dua sends his anchor links from Delhi and insertions of clips and graphics etc is done in Mumbai.
Hence, as corrective measure we have pulled down the episode and will reload the corrected version very soon. We would like to point out that we continue to air the entire interview with Mr. Nitin Gadkari on all our channel platforms .
