Why is Sakshi Joshi trending on Twitter?
Amid the ongoing election in the state, an audio clip of the journalist Sakshi Joshi discussing about Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee went viral. In the audio, Sakshi Joshi seems curious about the CM’s toilet routine. Journalists like Arfa Khanum Sherwani, Rohini Singh, Swati Chaturvedi and others were also part of the group.
The independent journalist, Sakshi inquired, “I was wondering as a woman. Mamata Banerjee arrives in a helicopter, speaks on the stage for an hour, returns back to her helicopter and then lands at a different venue. Even there she speaks for an hour on the stage. When is she going to the washroom? When is she going for herself? This is my question. “
“I was thinking that we (journalists) have to (use the loo frequently) due to the excessive heat and intake of a large quantity of water. We have to go somewhere or the other. I have never seen her taking any breaks,” the Lutyens’ journalist continued. An embarrassed Prashant Kishor jokingly asked, “Am I expected to answer this also?”
She further said, ““What is her (bathroom) schedule? How it has been made? I mean what is she doing. Wherever she goes, I have never seen her being lodged in someone else’s home. She directly comes to the venue and then goes away.” Kishor, who was expecting questions on the lines of ongoing elections in West Bengal laughed over it.
