The Economic Times was the only paper to write a first edit on Mukesh Bansal's exit from Flipkart.

A TV spectacle. Last night Nupur Sharma of the BJP and anchor Zakka Jacob had a royal spat on CNN- IBN while debating the JNU students sedition issue. It deteriorated by the second and had Jacob asking Sharma if she lacked any TV decorum and Sharma actually said yes she did! Then she wagged her finger across the airwaves and threatened Jacob 'Don't get personal..Watch it..! Watch it !' Her tirade continued - 'you are a biased anchor' . Jacob replied: ' You are free to leave the programme.. we don't want people to get high blood pressure on our programme'. Sharma continued screaming and Zakka said - 'can you give me a full stop !'
