The fight to demolish VVIP raj has only just begun."
Feb 26, 2015 Debate: #EndVVIPRaj: Action Begins Here - 1: "TIMES NOW's exclusive campaign exposes the self-proclaimed VVIPs. The discrimination is a clear divide between the haves and have nots. While the common people encounter several difficulties on daily basis reaching their respective workplaces, travelling on trains, taking our buses, there is a growing breed of politicians or self-proclaimed VVIPs who want to make people like you and me suffer by delaying our flights, choking us up in queues because they take a shortcut and most importantly insulting us for paying taxes and abiding laws. The fight to demolish VVIP raj has only just begun."
Feb 26, 2015 Debate: Polls over, VVIPs are back: "The road to the Chandigarh railway station split into two zones and the basis of the division made obvious through this board where the words VIPs & VVIPs are inscribed in bold letters. And look while the lane for people like you and me is choked, the special lane for these so called VVIPs is empty. From railway stations to airports, there is no curbing the VVIP Raj. TIMES NOW has accessed documents which show these netas have chosen to use the runway like their property with most of them citing health to drive in their own cars till the aircraft. So when your ailing grandmother takes the bus along with several others netas like Lalu Prasad Yadav, Rabri Devi, Mayawati and Jayalalithaa, drive through the runways in cars according to their own convenience. And when we question them, they are ready with a list of excuses. Elections are over, the VVIP culture is back."

Jan 9, 2015 Debate: Open VVIP treatment? - 1: "Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt spent second day at home in Mumbai on Friday (January 9) after the end of his furlough due to lack of coordination between Pune jail authorities and Mumbai Police over taking a decision on his plea for prison leave extension. The 55-year-old 'Munnabhai MBBS' star, convicted for illegal possession of an AK-56 rifle and its destruction and lodged in Pune's Yerwada Jail, was released on a 14-day furlough on December 24. He has sought an extension of his leave, although the authorities concerned are yet to take a decision on his plea."
Jan 9, 2015 #BendItForDutt and then issue denial?: "Sanjay Dutt furlough drama has almost become a joke. When an underprivileged convict is running pillar to post for his furlough to go through, here you have a superstar prisoner who flaunts his 8 pack abs on his prison leave and takes advantage of a bureaucratic loophole to stay out of jail. All this because a listless state Government won't make up it's mind whether to extend his furlough or not and sadly the joke tonight, ladies and gentlemen is on other prisoners at Yerwada Jail."
