The Indian government’s crackdown on political opposition extends to TV shows


With elections looming in India, opposition parties are gearing up to challenge Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is aiming for a third term in office. The opposition argues that Modi’s success is not due to his governance but rather the arrest or charging of his political rivals on dubious grounds, which has given an unfair advantage to the ruling party.
In this edition of The India Report, Sreenivasan Jain explores whether these actions are part of Modi’s anti-corruption crusade or a dangerous assault on democracy by stifling the opposition. The episode features insights from various experts and figures such as Derek O’Brien, Adish Aggarwala, Anjali Bhardwaj, Priyanka Kakkar, and Maya Tudor.
