This week, host Sumedha Mittal is joined by Newslaundry’s Basant Kumar, Tanishka Sodhi and Anmol Pritam.

Basant and Tanishka were reporting on the assembly elections scheduled in Chhattisgarh and Mizoram, respectively. Basant explains what farmers want in the state and their issues with paddy prices. Tanishka says Mizoram is not quite like any other election state, with parties having an intriguing set of “dos and don’ts” that they follow.

Anmol then talks about that old bugbear at this time of year – Delhi’s worsening air and how it impacts residents.
