Description

 

In this episode, host Snigdha Sharma is joined by Newslaundry’s Basant Kumar and BBC’s Neeraj Priyadarshi.

The conversation begins with the Bihar election results, and Basant describes his experience of covering the election on the ground. Throughout the election, he says, people made their discontent clear against the Nitish Kumar government.

“I was wrong when I thought that this time, the election was just about real issues. But no, this year again, it was about caste,” he adds. “Despite so many issues remaining the same in Bihar for the last 15 years, people did vote on the basis of caste.”

Neeraj explains how women votes helped the NDA gain a majority in Bihar. Though people were not happy with Nitish, he says, Bihar’s women voted for him because of the reforms Nitish brought in for them. 

“Women have Nitish’s back,” he says. He also believes that after Nitish’s tenure, Bihar has good youth leaders, ready to step in.

All this and a lot more as they talk about what made news this week, what didn’t, and what shouldn’t have. Tune in!
