Making India Vote: Elections 2019

May 20, 12:08 AM
India is in full election mode - wrapping up a six-week-long campaign season! 

In this episode, Isha & Shivani discuss the factors that compel India to go and cast that vote!  From circulating misinformation, to the use and abuse of fake news and divisive propaganda on a near-constant basis - everything is fair game in one of India's most bitterly fought election campaigns.

They discuss some of Modi's boldest policy steps, such as the demonetisation and Swachh Bharat mission, and look into how the Congress is challenging Modi over a high unemployment rate.

Finally, finishing up with a discussion around the religious-themed political narrative in the current political climate.
