Reporters Without Orders Ep 321: Bihar polls, voters’ dilemma in Maharashtra

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

WrittenBy:NL Team

This week, host Basant Kumar is joined by Newslaundry reporters Tanishka Sodhi and Anmol Pritam, who have been reporting on the ongoing Lok Sabha elections from ground zero. 

Anmol talks about his experience of reporting from Bihar on the tussle between the BJP-led NDA and the INDIA alliance and the “Nitish Kumar factor”, which seems to be dying down. He also shed light on the state of affairs in the hinterlands and the shifting political dynamics in the backward state.  

Tanishka reported on the Baramati constituency in Maharashtra, where the two factions of the NCP battled for the Pawar legacy. She says the rift in the Pawar family is leading the voters into confusion, while NCP supremo Sharad Pawar’s daughter Supriya Sule told her it’s “not a family issue”.     

Tune in.
