Arnab-Partho WhatsApp chats, Team India’s win at the Gabba, and Covid vaccinations | NL Hata Ep 312

This week on #NLHafta, Newslaundry’s Abhinandan Sekhri, Anand Vardhan, Manisha Pande, and Raman Kirpal are joined by Aunindyo Chakravarty, a former senior managing editor at NDTV India and NDTV Profit who currently works with NewsClick.

The discussion begins with the transcripts of the purported WhatsApp chats between Republic’s #ArnabGoswami and former #BARC CEO Partho Dasgupta. Abhinandan says, “I think Arnab hasn’t denied these chats and he has had more than enough time to. Neither have any of the other players denied the chats saying that these are nonsense, ‘this has not been said by us’.”

On the Indian cricket team’s win in Australia, Anand says it was a “great achievement”, because “not only was Virat Kohli missing, but they suffered a humiliating defeat in the first Test match. A number of players got injured after that.”

The conversation also spans the nationwide Covid vaccination drive, the phishing scam faced by Nidhi Razdan, and US President Joe Biden’s inauguration. Tune in to the full podcast:
