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.
Yesterday Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with BJP chief Amit Shah, manifesto committee president Rajnath Singh and other party members released the election manifesto ‘Sankalp Patra’ for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. With the tagline ‘Sankalpit Bharat, Sashakt Bharat’, the BJP said it would deliver on 75 promises in India’s 75th year of Independence. We’re dedicating our entire episode today to analysing the manifesto. Liz Mathew, who covers the BJP, discusses three themes- how the BJP is extending their narrative of nationalism through the manifesto, what voter groups they’re trying to appease and what opportunities they seem to have missed.
