Sumedha talks about her report on the I-T department revoking the tax exemption status of four NGOs. She explains how there’s an Adani connection to these events too.

Shiv reported on the appointment of a retired army official to the Rajasthan Public Service Commission, which sparked resentment among Jats, the state’s largest community. He explains how Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has found himself in a political crossfire.
