    The conversation starts with the unrest in Lakshadweep after a series of proposed laws were introduced by administrator Praful K Patel.

    Chhota Hafta 329: New Kerala ministry, Sadhguru in the dock, and Kejriwal causes diplomatic row

    Chhota Hafta 329: New Kerala ministry, Sadhguru in the dock, and Kejriwal causes diplomatic row

    This week on NL Hafta, Abhinandan Sekhri, Raman Kirpal, Manisha Pande and Mehraj D Lone are joined by Leena Gita Reghunath, an independent journalist based in Kerala.
    Leena starts the discussion talking about Pinarayi Vijayan's new ministry, especially the controversy over KK Shailaja's exclusion despite her laudatory work as the health minister. While noting that she was dropped in line with the governing Marxist party’s policy to not retain any of its previous ministers, Leena argues, “There is something Shailja has proved and not to be rewarded for that, politically, sends out a very bad gender message."
