This week on NL Hafta’s election special episode, Newslaundry’s Abhinandan Sekhri, Raman Kirpal and Anand Vardhan are joined by senior journalist Tabeenah Anjum.

On the Rajasthan assembly polls, the panel talks about the close competition between chief minister Ashok Gehlot and  the BJP – which is riding on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s wave. Tabeenah sheds light on the internal discord within the parties, the “rebel” independent candidates “mostly from the BJP”, and the Gehlot government’s welfarism against anti-incumbency. 

Discussing the alleged attempted assaination of pro-Khalistan leader Gurpatwant Singh Pannun in the US, the panel talks about India’s move and global standing. Anand delves into India “emerging as a big power”.  

They also discuss Rahul Gandhi’s ‘panauti’ jibe against PM Modi in reference to India’s defeat in the cricket World Cup finals. Raman talks about the mainstream media being Modi’s first line of defence.

This and a lot more. Tune in!
