When The News Minute asked Times Now chief Arnab Goswami yesterday about the tough questions he asked the Prime Minister in his interview, the star anchor paused a bit and said, โWell, he addressed everything, but it is for all of you to judge and I am sure you will.โ
Goswami, who is otherwise known for his fiery attacks on the interviewer, is under immense criticism for not asking tough questions and allowing the PM to get away with some non-answers.
Along with #ArnabSpeaksToPM, hashtags like #ChamchePeCharcha and #QuestionsArnabDidNotAsk were also being used.
Here is how he is being critisized online.

Arnab wasn't this polite even while buying his 1st condom
It's also a first for Arnab Goswami's wife to hear words like 'Absolutely', 'Agreed' in their married life. Thanks to Modi. #PMSpeaksToArnabโ Debarati Majumder (@debarati_m) June 27, 2016

I want what Arnab and Modi have, what they had on this lovely romantic date of an "interview". #RelationshipGoals #LoveInTheirEyesโ Dipannita Saha (@mental_Aunty) June 27, 2016
However, not everyone was dissatisfied with the interview.
On a very honest note, you may criticise PM @narendramodi, but his remarks on Raghuram Rajan on #PMSpeaksToArnab are mature, praiseworthy.โ Aditya Raj Kaul (@AdityaRajKaul) June 27, 2016
