In this episode, Team Newslaundry settles down for a fun chat on the UP assembly election with the students of Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Gorakhpur University.
The students talk about the state of the media; why they find Zee News interesting; and what they think of Lallantop, Dainik Jagran, NDTV and Newslaundry. They talk about the staff shortage at their university, why unemployment is a major issue, and why they think Yogi Adityanath is more of an entertainer than a statesman. On Akhilesh vs Yogi, the students explain who they prefer and why the media misrepresents Mayawati.
Caste politics, the Samajwadi Party’s “mafia raj” image, Behenji’s voter base and good governance, Yogi’s Hindutva politics – the students weigh in on all these issues and more. Watch.
