This week on NL Hafta, Newslaundry’s Abhinandan Sekhri, Raman Kirpal and Anand Vardhan are joined by senior journalist and writer Alpana Kishore.

The panel delves into the chaos surrounding The Kashmir Files and what it means in terms of propaganda. Alpana had covered the exodus of the Kashmiri Pandits at the time. “The movie has factual episodes,” she says, “but no context.”

The panel also discusses what ails the Congress party in India and how long it can survive.

Complaining about the media is easy and often justified. But hey, it’s the model that’s flawed.
