Daily Round Up Ep. 92 - Phase Three Polling Begins, Celebrity Candidates and More
On the NewsClick Daily Roundup we look at some of the day's important stories from India and beyond. Today, we remember the horrific violence inflicted on Bilkis Bano during the 2002 Gujarat riots in light of the Supreme Court's order to the Gujarat government to pay Bano 50 lakh in compensation. Editor-in-chief Prabir Purkayastha joins the Roundup to discuss the first day of Phase 3 of polling with an emphasis on poll-related violence. In Delhi we find a trend among major parties-fielding so-called celebrity candidates instead of option for those with proven records in governance and Prasanth closes things of with the top international story of the day from the Philippines.
