Kaun Banega Crorepati is one of the most popular shows on TV. Hosted by Amitabh Bachchan the show is presently on its 13th season. Recently some viewers claimed that one of the ‘wrong’ answers of a question was shown as correct on Monday’s episode of KBC 13. Now the producer of the show Siddhartha Basu has responded to it. The viewer also said that the question itself was ‘wrong’. However, Siddhartha responded that there was ‘no error whatsoever’.
KBC host Amitabh Bachchan presented a question to contestant Deepti Tupe, “Normally, with which of these does every sitting of the Indian Parliament start?”
The correct answer was shown to be ‘Question Hour’.
A viewer however took a screenshot and tweeted, “Wrong question and answer in today’s episode of @KBCsony. Have followed several sessions on TV. Normally sitting in #LokSabha begins with Zero hour and sitting in #RajyaSabha begins with Question hour. Please get it checked. @SrBachchan @LokSabhaSectt @babubasu.”
Siddhartha replied, “No error whatsoever. Kindly check the handbooks for members of the Lok Sabha & Rajya Sabha for yourself. In both houses, unless otherwise directed by the speaker/chairperson, sittings conventionally begin with Question Hour, followed by Zero Hour.”
The viewer wrote in a follow-up tweet, “Mr. Basu, thank you for your response. I cross checked the information on Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha websites. The two screenshots testify that both the question, as well as the answer were wrong. Must mention that sitting in Rajya Sabha begins at 11.00 am.” He also attached screenshots along with his post.
