Reporters Without Orders Ep 246: Pollution, stubble burning, Bharat Jodo Yatra

A reporters’ podcast about what made news and what shouldn’t have.

WrittenBy:NL Team

This week, it’s an all-Newslaundry panel as Ayush Tiwari is joined by Tanishka Sodhi and Shivnarayan Rajpurohit. 

The conversation begins with Shiv’s report on stubble burning in Punjab and Haryana as he details how the latter is performing better in tackling the problem. “If you ask officials from either states, they will obviously say they are strict about it, but it’s what we witnessed on ground with the farmers,” says Shiv about what he noticed in Haryana.

They then discuss Tanishka’s analysis of the Bharat Jodo Yatra in Maharashtra. “This may have a long term effect on the party, Rahul Gandhi’s image and the energising of the party workers,” she says, adding that her perception of the yatra changed when she spoke to participants.

This and a lot more as they talk about what made news, what didn’t, and what shouldn’t have. 

Tune in.
