This weekend, over 200 civil society organisations launched a campaign publicly denouncing the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led BJP government saying that the current dispensation has attacked the social fabric of India. A collective of at least 150 scientists have appealed to voters to "reject those who lynch or assault people" and vote against "inequality, intimidation, discrimination". Academics to filmmakers have signed letters asking Indians to "vote the BJP and its allies" out of power, arguing that the idea of India and our constitution is under threat. Tonight on We The People, we debate whether the core ideals of India's Constitution are under threat. Is the battle for 2019, battle of governance or battle of ideology? A battle for values and not political parties? Is the 2019 election a Fight for the idea of India? If so, what is the idea of India?
