The Indian Express brings you a podcast that peels back the layers of political mudslinging and campaign rhetoric to cover everything you need to know about India voting. Express Elections will equip you with expert analysis and commentary on the significant events and players, an assessment of where the current government stands, and an understanding of the electoral process in India.
In the state assembly elections yesterday, a resurgent Congress has made crucial gains ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections with the party all set to form governments in the Hindi heartland of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh. These victories of the Congress will gloss over the party’s defeat in Mizoram, which was the only northeastern state still under its influence. Down south, riding strong on Telangana pride and its welfare schemes, the Telangana Rashtra Samithi is headed for a landslide victory. Joining us to lend some insight into the election results and what they mean for the 2019 elections are Manoj CG, who covers the Congress and Liz Mathew, who covers the BJP.
