In this episode, host Ayush Tiwari is joined by Newslaundry’s Nidhi Suresh and Shivnarayan Rajpurohit.
Nidhi discusses her on the Delhi police allegedly assaulting transgender people from a shelter home in Sitapuri. They had gone to a local police station after the police, some apparently from across the border in Uttar Pradesh, had taken away a trans man from the shelter against his wishes.
Shivnarayan talks about his on the scrutiny the Delhi Gymkhana Club is currently facing by the government for allegedly violating norms to fast-track membership. “The club has a waiting period of 30 years, so you can understand the exclusivity,” Shivnarayan says. He explains why some members are anxious about what the scrutiny would entail for their membership.
This and a lot more as they talk about what made news, what didn’t, and what shouldn’t have.
