In the age when the government and its supporters in the corporate world have killed media freedom and are routinely restricting the ability of independent journalists to engage in fearless and objective journalism, Janta Ka Reporter has stood resolute in speaking truth to power. In the course of our short journey, we've broken several high-impact news, notable amongst them has been our expose on the Rafale scam, which dominated the political discourse in India up until the Lok Sabha elections. With mainstream media having sold its conscience, the role of Janta Ka Reporter becomes that much more important for the next five years. With the BJP returning with an even bigger majority, media in general will be even more scared to ask tough questions to PM Modi and his ministers. I, Rifat Jawaid, and my small team of journalists will be at the forefront in exposing the shortcomings of the government. Such an ambitious newsgathering exercise entails costs that no corporate or business house will be keen to support. It's, therefore, important that you come forward and contribute with money as low as the equivalent to a months newspaper subscription or as high as you can afford. Our videos will be exclusively showcased for Patreon patrons here. In other words, you will be a participant in our editorial decisions.

The real satisfaction of meaningful journalism is when your work brings about a positive change in the lives of people. One way to achieve this is by becoming the voice of the society's voiceless. They need our platform the most to highlight their woes. This needs dedicated effort. We will hire one ROVING multimedia Reporter when the number of our patron reaches 200
