Ayush Tiwari is joined by Newslaundry’s Nidhi Suresh and Basant Kumar.
They discuss Basant’s first report in the on yoga guru and business tycoon Ramdev. Basant speaks about Ramdev’s background and the allegations of nepotism and exploitation against him and his family. “People from his own family and town resent him but there are some people who are still proud of him for how far he has come,” Basant says.
They also discuss Nidhi’s on how the Adityanath government has backtracked on its promise of a job and a house to the family of the Hathras rape victim. “There is no explanation from the government’s end. It’s like they never said it,” Nidhi says.
This and a lot more as they talk about what made news, what didn’t, and what shouldn’t have.
