    No doubt, she’s an amazing news host. Listening to WION would be disappointing after she leaves. Reason given for her leaving is ridiculous; she was forced to go only due to her popularity)

    No doubt she’s an amazing news host. Listening to WION will be very disappointing after she leaves. That she was sent off due to her popularity, if true, is height of idiocy and proves why Subhash Chandra is not a media visionary but an ordinary one.

    Palki was at her very best for anchoring program. I miss her and wion.

    I suspect her criticism of China caused her to leave. In other words, China does not like criticism and they just need to say stop that behaviour or else so WION under pressure from outside sources had to comply. Palki said bye bye. Palki called a spade a spade and told the truth. I will not watch WION anymore.
