Our flagship daily news show, where hosts Shashank Bhargava and Snigdha Sharma talk to in-house experts about what is going on and why you need to care about it.
First, Shubhajit Roy, Indian Express’ Associate Editor, talks about how in a highly unusual move the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) slammed Rihanna, Greta Thunberg and Meena Harris for speaking out on the farmers’ protests. He also explains the controversy that followed after the MEA did this, and the response of the US government regarding the protests.
