NDTV Anchor Sonal Mehrotra Kapoor, while reporting the news of the two-child norm for government jobs in Assam claimed that while people with more than two children will not be eligible to get a government job in Assam, the Assam Chief Minister, Sarbananda Sonowal himself has 6 children.
Kapoor tells her viewers that “The interesting bit in this is that the Chief Minister himself has 6 kids, but he has decided to finally implement this two-child policy”.
This video was also shared by NDTV on the micro-blogging website Twitter but now seems to have been deleted by NDTV.
The truth, however, could not be far from this. Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal does not have 6 children. In fact, the Chief Minister of Assam is not married and leads a single life.
