India TV declares another round of its mega conclave 'Chunav  Manch' on UP elections

While the country braces itself for the much-awaited Assembly Elections 2017, Uttar Pradesh remains the epicentre of the buzz. The soaring high political fever has gripped this all-political state like never before—an election that is almost seen as a run-through of the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections or a verdict of PM Narendra Modi’s demonetization move, to say the least.

To gratify its audiences with top content, India TV has declared yet another edition of its full-day mega conclave ‘Chunav Manch’ right from the nerve centre of Lucknow from where all the big political headlines are being generated endlessly for months now.

India TV Chairman and Editor-in-Chief Rajat Sharma shall punctuate the day’s proceedings by subjecting political bigwigs to the tough questions in his unique interrogating style to bring out the real plot to light amongst the almost continuous news of endless flip-flops by the key contenders.

Political big-wheelers those are most likely to be present for the day include UP CM Akhilesh Yadav, BJP president Amit Shah, UP Congress chief Raj Babbar, who are expected to share the manch with leaders like Yogi Adityanath, Dr. Mahesh Sharma, Prof. Ramgopal Yadav, Sakshi Maharaj, Shivpal Yadav, Asaduddin Owaisi, Keshav Prasad Maurya, Dr. Sanjay Singh, Pramod Tiwari, Anupriya Patel, Naresh Agarwal, Sudhanshu Trivedi, Manoj Tiwari and Raghuraj Pratap Singh (Raja Bhaiyya), amongst others.

Announcing the second chapter of Chunav Manch – UP, India TV MD & CEO, Ritu Dhawan said, “We as the leader of the genre owe a magnifying view of all that interests our viewers. UP is hot (for our viewers) at the moment and thus the initiative is unavoidable. The booming success of the first edition has made the challenge a really difficult one and we will strive to match it.”

Chunav Manch – UP will be held in Lucknow on February 4th 2017 and will be telecast live on India TV through the day.
