Did NDTV journalist Nidhi Razdan spread fake news?
Press and media is often accused of twisting news. This time after interviewing the Prime Minister of Norway, NDTV journalist Nidhi Razdan tweeted that Prime Minister Erna Solberg said that Norway is ready to mediate between India and Pakistan on the Kashmir issue if both sides want it.

Soon After that the Norwegian ambassador to India Nils Ragnar Kamsvåg tweeted and refuted NDTV’s claim “PM @erna_solberg has not offered to mediate between India and Pakistan as has been erroneously reported.”

BJP member and Director at Public Policy Research Center, Sumeet Bhasin accused NDTV of spreading fake news.
Has this becoming habit of @ndtv @Nidhi to manufacture fake news on a daily basis. Time .@Ra_THORe ji initiates stringent action against such forces who just to oppose PM have sold their soul. pic.twitter.com/QHWmiU9mYp— Sumeet Bhasin (@sumeetbhasin) January 7, 2019
Although, NDTV journalist Nidhi Razdan has refuted that it is not a fake news, but many are asking who is correct Nidhi or Norwegian ambassador to India Nils Ragnar Kamsvåg?
