Episode 1142 November 23, 2020

Plans to disrupt upcoming J&K polls foiled, Punjab farmers relent, PM Modi at G20

In the first segment, we talk about the encounter in which four Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists were killed in J&K last week. To begin with, Deeptiman Tiwary explains how it revealed their plans to conduct terror strikes, the tell-tale signs about their links with Pakistan, and why the region often sees such inferences before an election. Then, Shubhajit Roy talks about New Delhi’s response to the incident and why it needs to be seen in the context of India’s past retaliatory actions, like those after the Pulwama and the Uri terror attacks.

Next, Raakhi Jagga talks about farmers in Punjab deciding to remove blockades and allowing the movement of passengers and good trains. She explains the reasons behind the move, their plans for future protests, and why their actions have turned into a mass movement (17:58).

And in the end, a quick look at the statements made by PM Narendra Modi during the G20 summit (25:40).

Further listening:

Why J&K’s new local polls matter
