This week on NL Hafta, Newslaundry’s Abhinandan Sekhri, Manisha Pande, Raman Kirpal and Anand Vardhan are joined by Himanshu, an associate professor at Jawaharlal Nehru University.

The panel delves into the issue of India’s inflation, and the possible causes and solutions. “The pandemic isn’t the only reason for it,” Himanshu says. “The rise in oil prices directly affects daily commodities.” He terms the last five years of the Indian economy as “disastrous due to collapse in exports, investments and domestic demands”.

The conversation shifts to the communal violence in Jahangirpuri and the subsequent “demolition drive”. The panel questions how and why this happened, and why the BJP hasn’t issued a single statement on it.

This and a lot more, only on NL Hafta.
