This week, host Akanksha Kumar is joined by Newslaundry’s Alenjith K Johny and Avdhesh Kumar.

The discussion begins with Alenjith’s report on human-wildlife conflict in the village around Kottiyoor wildlife sanctuary. Alenjith elaborates that farmers migrated to the region from the southern part of Kerala; the conflicts began recently. Akanksha and Avdhesh recall while covering the UP assembly election, a similar ‘awara pashu’ issue was on people’s minds and wherever they went, they found people complaining about it.

The discussion then moves to Avdhesh’s report on the claim of hijab ban in UP's Moradabad college. Avdhesh clarifies that a new dress code was introduced by the authorities at the Hindu College to prevent the entry of outsiders. It was just an allegation by Samajwadi Party’s youth wing.

Tune in.

Due to a technical reason, the podcast is audio only this week. You can also listen to conversation here.

Complaining about the media is easy and often justified. But hey, it’s the model that’s flawed.
