Tonight on The Buck Stops Here:
Ghulam Ali to Khurshid Kasuri: Maximum Sena-giri
The Shiv Sena goons today smeared black paint on Sudheendra Kulkarni for organising a programme in Mumbai to launch a book by former Pakistan foreign minister Khurshid Mahmood Kasuri. They later defended the hooliganism calling it a "mild attack". On The Buck Stops Here, we debate: what has Shiv Sena achieved by what it has done? And should Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis act tough with the Sena?
Award wapsi: Principled protest or only anti-Modi?
Standing up for right to dissent, a number of writers have returned their Sahitya Akademi awards or quit the Akademi posts. On The Buck Stops Here, author Nayantara Sahgal faces off with senior journalist Swapan Dasgupta as we debate: is this a principled position or an anti-Modi bias? Literary critic and activist Ganesh Devy also joins the show.
