Our flagship daily news show, where hosts Shashank Bhargava and Arun George talk to in-house experts about what is going on and why you need to care about it
After all the twists and turns in the Maharashtra government formation, the dust has finally settled with the Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress forming the government with Uddhav Thackeray at the helm. On today’s episode we take a step back from all this drama and try to unpack what happened behind the scenes in the last week. Why did the BJP trust Ajit Pawar or assume they could prove majority? What part has NCP supremo Sharad Pawar played in all this? First, Shubhangi Khapre explains BJP political maneouvering, how top leaders like Amit Shah were involved, why it failed and why the loss is such a blow. Then Manoj CG discusses Ajit Pawar’s game plan, what part NCP supremo Sharad Pawar had to play and where the Congress stood through all of this.
