Navika Kumar, Times Now: Profile and Wiki

Navika Kumar is widely regarded as the best investigative reporter in the contemporary India. She is currently working with Times Now, an English news channel as its Managing Editor.



Before this, she was working with the Indian Express. In fact, she was enjoying her job in the print media. When the Bennet Coleman and Company Ltd. decided to launch a news channel in association with Reuters, they were looking for a face with wide contacts in the Indian political and business circles. They couldn’t find a better option than Navika. She was approached and persuaded with the promise of heavy monthly salary and perks.

Navika is known for exposing lots of scams – both political and economic. Previously, she used to be targeted by all - both BJP and Congress. Now, she is increasingly being seen as a strong Pro - BJP journalist.

Swaraj Vs. Navika

Actually, Swaraj was subtley referring to Navika not-so-clean image. She was featured in the Radia tape scandals where she was brokering some deals. In the conversation, it looked like she is quite close to Arun Jaitely. May be, Sushma Swaraj was referring to this ‘closeness’.

Times Now is running a high pitch campaign against Sushma Swaraj for her help to the tainted ‘Lalit Modi’. Navika Kumar is on the front with lots of news. Sushma Swaraj might have got irked with her reports.

  1. Navika, I have a lot of respect for your balanced handling of news or investigating reporting. What I cannot understand is that the Congress party and Rahul Gandhi claim that they were prevented from talking in Parliament. I think media should strongly point out that if at all it was Congress party who repeatedly and shamelessly disrupted Parliament. Let them not carry this charge with impunity. So far they have. Will you directly point this out the next time some one makes this baseless charge?

  3. Navika, I watch your 9 pm show with interest and respect. I have two suggestions: What is Secular? Be bold, as you demonstrably are, and call spade a spade. Call Muslims instead of Communal parties and call the bluff of other parties who call them secular and practice the worst. 2. Too much cross talk and interruptions take place. Our so called leaders and participants are uncouth, to say the least. Keep a switch to turn on only the person who is asked . Thus they know they can be seen and not heard. Let them raise their hand and you call whoever you want next. Let there be civility so we the viewers can hear fully and properly. I DO NOT THINK SHOUTING IS ADDING TO THE DEBATE, SOUND BITE IS NOT NECESSARY.
    You have shown knowledge, comprehension, ability to separate wheat from chaff. Can you improve quality of your debate? Dilip Shah

    1. Accoustic trauma is what I suffer from whenever I switch on the Times Now news channels and now the Republic ! While the topics they choose to debate on is interesting it is the noise levels that are unbearable. Moreover it's not great anchoring when you don't let your panelists speak, specially when they are not subscining to your view. It happens more often with the Pakistni guests, if you are not going yo listen to them , why call them ????? It all started with our narcissist friend Mr.Arnob Goswami , who just loves to listen to the music of his own voice. And that legacy continues with Navika, Anand Narashiman , Shivshankar, Tanvi and that entire lot !!!!
      Just stopped enjoying watching news these days !...if only they could do this a little more quietly....

  4. Novika should join BJP as she's acting like BJP's spoke person in dibate rather than anchor.
    Same on her

  5. No one against the anchors view is allowed to speak. Only a few who are regulars on the show, like bakshi, r s n, sampit etc are allowed to speak. If a quest who is of the same view as the anchor is rude to another guest, that is okay, navika will not interfere, and if the guests asks if this is the way she runs a debate, she says not to teach her how to run a debate!. Very low IQ news channel. Actually there are no news channels in india, just a bunch of jokers. Of course there is a choice not to watch it, but someone has to speak up against these jokers. Everything is a breaking news! After arnabs departure, every anchor seems to be trying to fill the make up for their loss

  6. Dear Rahul, Anand ,Navika, and Tanvi,
    I am a well wisher of Times now..all programmes are excellent, especially the debate. I have a small submission to u that, during the debate we can't hear anything because of the hallagulla of your participants.Please give them some time to express their ideas and don't interrupt them by you and also do not allow anybody to interept them. Very sad to say that nobody can listen your debate..... Please do the needful.
    With warm regards,
    Col Sathianadhan.

  8. Navika kumar's anchoring is not in the interest of impartial journlisim.it is well known that all the tv channels have affiliation to one the other political party.you have to lookafter their interests but not at the cost ofquality of your journilism.navika should allow the speaker to finish his/her point and to interrupt in between of which she is in habit of

  11. Navika, you are doing very well in your present role. I think some innovative ideas need to be implemented by you in keeping ahead of the other channels.
    Also, the panelists should be adequately treated and should maintain discipline..... which may be difficult!
    Perhaps you need to revamp the schedule thoroughly before the next election in 2019. Of course, you need to keep it under the wraps.
    Best wishes.

  13. Some faces as guests on TOI like John Dayal, etc should not be allowed space as he is an agent of CIA via his links with USCIRF and US political setup. He was instrumental in promoting Teesta Setalvad, a rogue congress agent who sold her self out for maligning India. Modi's denial of US visa (the only world leader) was due to him being a Hindu and John Dayal is planted and promoted by Church for acting as soft spy for those alien powers which wants to loot, and defame India. These powers are no different then those who colonized India for centuries. Dayal Inc including the fellow viz Father (so called) Cedric Prakash (who is now sent away by Church (possibly due to rise of Modi as PM) to Syria, in a strife torn country, where Indian media or politicians wont be able to trace him. Such TV agents (sorry if word used is inappropriate, but no disrespect) should be better denounced or kept at bay, in the best interests of security of country. I was AGHAST that Ariel Sharon as Defence Minister had committed worst genocide on Muslims in Lebanon but was rather felicitated, than barring him from entering US. Shame to our class of secular (so called) setup designed only to oppress Hindu majority. This should be out cried at all platforms, lest very existence of Hindus is threatened. This is the design by international forces under Abrahamic garbs.

  14. Why on earth do you YELL when you're on TV? Can't you speak in a normal tone or does it have to be loud an obnoxious every time?

In fact, Anant Singh has become a foe of Nitish Kumar precisely because of her. Lipi Singh has broken the ring of illegal businesses of Anant Singh in the area.





Lipi Singh is the daughter of senior JDU leader and former UP Cadre IAS officer RCP Singh. She might have got favourable area for being the daughter of the right hand man of Nitish Kumar. However, taking a look at her performance, it can be safely said that Lipi Singh is completely apolitical when it comes to dealing with law and order of her area.

Masood Azhar is DEAD: Confirmed

That Indian Air Force attack on JeM training camp in Balakot has inflicted heavy damage was never in doubt. However, some credible reports emerging out of Pakistan can give a pack of good news to India. 


It is believed that Masood Azhar was seriously hurt in the attack. He along with Colonel Salim, a top rank former ISI officer, was rushed to Army Hospital where Colonel Salim was declared brought dead. They were sleeping at the Seminary when S – 2000 Precision Guided Missile hit the area. It was immediately sealed by the Army and even local police was not allowed to enter. Journalists were taken to Jaba to give an impression that only few trees were fallen after Indian air strike.



Masood Azhar was critical. He died on 2nd March, 2019. Pakistani establishment is aware of the condition of Masood Azhar. However, it is impossible for them to accept the truth for obvious reasons. The Foreign Minister has only let the world know that Masood is in Pakistan and is seriously ill. Some reports …

Reena Thakur, BJP: Profile, Wiki, Husband, Age and Family

It is said that there is no negative publicity when it comes to politics. If you know how to remain in news, your politics will shine through. However, there is an exception. If you are indulged in sexual crime and known for having illicit sexual relationship, then your politics will be doomed. News related to sex won’t help you. Even Bill Clinton couldn’t be saved.



Reena Thakur is the latest example of this conundrum. She used to be a prolific young leader of BJP in Himachal Pradesh. A member of BJP’s Women’s Cell, she has gotten immense potential to keep people engrossed with her speech. 
Unfortunately, that may not happen anymore. Her politics is dead. Her political life is finished forever. The reason is making illicit sexual relationship. Reena Thakur was allegedly in relationship with Upen Pandit, another young BJP leader of Himachal Pradesh. She made consensual sex with the latter. 
While making love in the bathroom, she shot video through her mobile phone. When the wife of Upen P…
