Saurabh Dwivedi and Rajdeep Sardesai presents Neta Nagri. Weekly round up of political events in India. In the first episode of neta Nagri Rajdeep Sardesai shares his view point on Mamta Banerjee vs doctors in West Bengal, Amit Shah is dual role of BJP president and home minister, Rajnath Singh status, Narendra Modi on global forum, Nitish Kumar's new plan for Bihar, Prashant kishor's new role after Jagan and Congress future while everyone is speculating about Rahul Gandhi's future as party president.
In the mid-1990s, as VP Singh was scrambling to help form a non-BJP, non-Cong ‘Third Front’ government, we asked the former prime minister if such a ‘khichdi’ government was good for the country. “I don’t know about being desirable, but it is inevitable,” was his sharp response. Singh was seen as the original mascot of third front politics: in 1989, he became prime minister by forging a coalition with, quite miraculously, the outside support of the BJP and the left. The single point agenda then was to remove the Rajiv Gandhi-led Congress government.
