This week, it’s an all-Newslaundry panel as host Akanksha Kumar is joined by Gurmehar Kaur and Sumedha Mittal.
Gurmehar was in Punjab, reporting on the police’s manhunt for radical leader Amritpal Singh. She explains how Singh rose to prominence and the situation on the ground. Sumedha adds, “Punjab has seen so much since Partition that it has created a vacuum. And people like Deep Sidhu and Amritpal Singh act as the ones who will rescue the state and fill that void.”
The discussion shifts to Sumedha’s story on suicides at IITs and how casteism plays out on campus.
