Punya Prasun Bajpai resigns from ABP News

New Delhi: Punya Prasun Bajpai who began his Journalism career with Lokmat Samachar in Nagpur almost 2 decades ago, has offered his resignation to ABP News within a few months joining it.

Nagpur Today has learnt of this through authoritative sources; and it seems unlikely that he will take back his resignation.

Bajpai , is a well known anchor and media personality of India. He was a news anchor and Executive editor at Aaj Tak and primarily used to host weekday show 10 तक. He had recently joined ABP News and used to host the show Masterstroke.

Since a few days it was noticed that whenever his show was to be aired the channel would be blacked out. This could be the reason for his resignation.

He published six books namely राजनीति मेरी जान (Raajneeti Meri Jaan), डिजास्टरः मीडिया एंड पॉलिटिक्स (Disaster: Media and Politics), संसदः लोकतंत्र या नजरों का धोखा (Sansad: Loktantra ya nazron ka dhokha), आदिवासियों पर टाडा (Aadivasiyon par TADA) and others. He also writes articles for a number of daily and weekly news and literary publications in Hindi, several of which are also published on his blog. He won the Ramnath Goenka award for Hindi print and electronic media in 2005-06 and 2007–08. He is the only journalist who received this award twice.

Abhisar Sharma, another popular journalist with ABP has been asked to go on ‘long leave’.

Today evening, will probably be the last evening Bajpai will be seen hosting prime time news slot of ABP News.
