Barkha used this opportunity to clear up her image & asked Right wing troll to make fun of Sri Sri too.

???????? Funny part is the lady who was involved in Radia tapes scam, Kargil controversy, ending career of journo YK Sheetal for just protesting against her talking about Ethics of Journalism.
But Manak Gupta refused to remain silent & gave her a befitted reply.
How cheap. Lost whatever little respect I had. You expose yourself moment you get personal to avoid the issue. https://t.co/9PjKfw69ng
