Republic TV is going to support the politics of nationalism and governance played by BJP.
In short it will support the BJP thoughts regarding nationalism and governance.

Republic TV is going to give sleepless nights to all opposition parties as indirectly RT is nothing but the BJP TV.

Rarely viewers will get to see anything against BJP.

Republic TV will give tough competition to zee and times now and NDTV.

Republic TV will show that Congress Party needs its own television channel even if congress supporters demand that I do not think Congress will start the Congress TV.  For me Congress Party is sleeping do not know what they are planning regarding 2019 elections.

All BJP supporters and Trolls will indirectly support Republic TV and they may start to Troll the heads of other news channels onwards 6th May 2017
