Reporters Without Orders Ep 277: Illegal occupants of Delhi’s Lutyens, Sachin Pilot’s politics

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

WrittenBy:NL Team

This week, host Gurmehar Kaur is joined by Newslaundry’s Shivnarayan Rajpurohit and Pratyush Deep.

Shivnarayan reported on Congress leader Sachin Pilot’s relationship with his party in Rajasthan, and the impediments on his way ahead of Rajasthan’s assembly polls. He explains how he traced the 45-year-old’s journey from being the youngest MP in the Indian parliament to his current tussle with chief minister Ashok Gehlot, also throwing light on his chances of a strong comeback. 

Pratyush reported on the RSS-linked outfits illegally occupying housing meant for members of parliament in Lutyens’ Delhi. He recounted how he found out that at least 14 of the 176 flats at Vithal Bhai Patel complex were illegally occupied, with one of the occupants being Rajyavardhan Singh Parmar, a Hindutva leader accused of sexual assault.
