This week, host Akanksha Kumar is joined by Newslaundry’s Shivnarayan Rajpurohit and Ashwine Kumar Singh.
The discussion begins with Shiv’s story on how foreign correspondents in India have been reeling under pressure in recent years. They struggle with threats, visas and access while the government believes they have a “bias” against India. Akanksha points out how there has been a “concerted effort on restricting reporting in Kashmir”.
Later on, the discussion moves to Ashwine’s report on the AAP’s protest against the arrests of Manish Sisodia and Satyendar Jain, and how their resignations will impact governance in the capital. How will the party, which proclaims to be against corruption, defend itself when two of its most important ministers have been jailed on corruption changes?
