On the occasion of India TV Chairman and Editor-in-Chief Rajat Sharma's birthday, one of his fans decided to celebrate by distributing food to at least 1,300 people.

Former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Vijay Jolly was also present at the food distribution event hosted by Tanwar. Describing Rajat Sharma as his role model, Tanwar said that he knows how to remain down to earth and empower society. The fan pledged that as long as he is alive, he will continue to celebrate Rajat Sharma's birthday in similarly noble ways.

Last year, Tanwar organised a 'bhajan sandhya' on the occasion of Rajat Sharma's birthday, where he distributed wheelchairs for the disabled. Meanwhile, former MLA Jolly also conveyed his greetings on Rajat Sharma's birthday, saying he considers the latter as a 'boss' and his senior. Jolly also recalled the India TV chairman's speech in 1977 at Delhi University about a positive approach towards life.
