Vikas Dubey, CBSE’s revised syllabus, Jyotiraditya Scindia, and more | NL Hafta Ep 284

In this week’s NL Hafta, the Newslaundry panel of Abhinandan Sekhri, Raman Kirpal, Mehraj D Lone and Manisha Pande discuss gangster #VikasDubey’s arrest, #JyotiradityaScindia’s speech, and cancel culture.

The discussion starts with Scindia naming former chief ministers Kamal Nath and #DigvijayaSingh in a speech, where he reminded them that he’s still around and powerful. Talking about Scindia’s legacy, Raman says, “Scindia may become a power figure with the Centre’s help.”

Moving to the arrest of Vikas Dubey for killing eight policemen, Mehraj talks about how Dubey flourished in Uttar Pradesh “because of political patronage.” (Note: This podcast was recorded before Dubey was killed.) The panel also discusses how casteism runs the police and bureaucracy in Uttar Pradesh, and how people are likely to applaud the police and chief minister Adityanath, who openly boasted about controlling crime in the state with encounters.

(Note: This was recorded before Vikas Dubey was killed.)
