Journalist TR Vivek joins the Hafta team to discuss his award-winning piece on Cauvery and Kamal Haasan’s newly-formed party, ‘Makkal Needhi Maiam’. Abhinandan Sekhri, Manisha Pande, Anand Vardhan and Raman Kirpal also talk about #AAPSlapgate and the ongoing controversy. Abhinandan asks what was the reason to call a meeting at midnight? Was the issue really worth it? They also discuss Nirav Modi, the #PNBScam as well as the Rotomac fraud case. Manisha is very sceptical about Justin Trudeau and his visit to India. Anand Vardhan gets involved in an exciting debate with the rest of the panellists as they discuss Uttar Pradesh’s ‘encounter policy’. There is also a bunch of e-mails from our subscribers. Listen up, there is a song dedication too!
