In this episode of NL Hafta, Abhinandan Sekhri, Manisha Pande and Mehraj D Lone of Newslaundry are joined by Suhasini Haider, diplomatic editor of the Hindu newspaper, and Dr Arjun Dang, CEO of Dr Dang’s Labs.

They discuss the coronavirus pandemic, how India is dealing with it and what impact it is likely to have. In this context, they talk about Narendra Modi’s address to the nation and why his prescriptions for containing the spread of the virus add up to little. The panel also discuss former Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi’s nomination to the Rajya Sabha, the political instability in Madhya Pradesh; the Press Council’s notice to the Telegraph for a headline that allegedly mocked India’s president; nepotism and mediocrity in the media industry, and much more.
