Hafta 370: Russia-Ukraine war, final countdown to Uttar Pradesh assembly poll

The podcast where we discuss the news of the week.

WrittenBy:NL Team

This week on NL Hafta, Newslaundry’s Manisha Pande, Raman Kirpal and Anand Vardhan are joined by Happymon Jacob, writer and JNU professor, and Rahul Verma, fellow at the Centre for Policy Research.

The panel talks about the Indian government’s delayed evacuation of Indian students in Ukraine. Anand says dispatching ministers at a time like this “is not always a bad move depending on the person’s capabilities”, but not everyone agrees. Happymon says, “India is the only country to be in the good books of all. Yet it only cares about itself.”

On the final phase of polling in Uttar Pradesh, the panel discusses the situation on the ground and how experts are confused as to which party will emerge the winner.

This and a lot more, only on NL Hafta.
