Reacting to the EC order, Shreyans Shah, owner of the Gujarat Samachar group that operates GSTV television said, "The interview run by GSTV was about the induction of Rahul Gandhi as the Congress president. Her blessings, wisdom and innate commitment to Congress ideology shall always be our guiding light".
