Hemantkumar Shah, a journalist with 14 years experience, was a “core group member” of the Swadeshi Jagran Manch till a decade ago, and a “loved child of RSS”.
He quit his post as in-charge principal when the management of his Ahmedabad college declined to allow the firebrand MLA Jignesh Mevani to use its auditorium.
The Indian Express reports:
“Shah recalled that in 2001, he wrote an article in a vernacular newspaper criticising the then Narendra Modi-led Gujarat government’s Samras Yojana for panchayats.
“The morning the article was published, I received a call from the editor, asking me not to write anti-Modi articles for the time-being,” he says.
