The Bengali daily, Anandabazar Patrika (ABP), is one of India’s oldest and most influential newspapers, published from the eastern city of Kolkata, the capital of the state of West Bengal. In recent years, it has found itself in the middle of a bitter conflict with the state government. The newspaper’s allegedly critical stand against the chief minister and her ruling party during the state elections of 2016 turned out to be a costly battle as the state government, also a major advertiser, withheld advertising fees from the paper.
