Right from its launch in February 2019, the channel’s core focus has been on sustained people-driven campaigns, hard on-ground investigative journalism and using its platform to raise non-stop questions that fix accountability and demand justice for the people. From having 100 reporters along the border and the biggest names in national security in its studios after the Pulwama attack to deploying its Special Investigative Teams on-ground to dig out the truth of the Delhi Riots, Republic Bharat has constantly brought back news that matters to the people of India to Hindi news television.
