This week, Abhinandan Sekhri, Raman Kirpal, Manisha Pande and Anand Vardhan are joined by National Law University professor Anup Surendranath and independent journalist Cynthia Stephen. 

The discussion begins with the Supreme Court’s landmark verdict on the EWS reservation and how it will impact marginalised communities. Cynthia suggests that the constitution’s “intent has been weakened” through the introduction of this quota.

The conversation moves to the assembly elections in Himachal Pradesh and Gujarat. Manisha, who went to Himachal to cover the polls, talks about the key issues for voters.
