Description

In this episode, the host Snigdha Sharma is joined by Newslaundry’s Basant Kumar and Akanksha Kumar.


The conversation starts off with some bizarre news stories and quickly moves to Basant’s report on the association of right-wing groups with most cases registered under the new anti-conversion law in Uttar Pradesh. The discussion then shifts to Akanksha’s report on how a local right-wing body disrupted a consensual interfaith marriage in Lucknow. The triad discusses the role of local fringe groups before and after the new law came to be.


The three also talk about the farmers' protest and Basant’s report on the 12 farmer groups who extended support to the new agriculture laws. “Five  out of 12 farmers associations were directly connected to BJP,” says Basant.


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