India TV’s Chunav Manch UP leaves audiences asking for more

The second edition of India TV’s Mega-Conclave ‘Chunav Manch UP’ came out a notch higher than its hugely successful predecessor. While the scale of execution and the participation was on a par with the first edition, the differentiating fire for the most part came from the overtly charged participation both from the political heavyweights who were grilled and the equally celebrated audiences.
The enviable line-up of participants that India TV is known for in its events included heavyweights from the top political formations in the fray. The format was a strategic and considered mix of top personalities being grilled in one-on-one sessions to passionate debates moderated by top India TV news anchors. The Aap Ki Adalat Specials conducted by India TV Chairman and Editor-in-Chief Rajat Sharma himself were surely the highlight.
While the Political biggies took potshots at one another, sessions with heavyweights such as the BJP’s Yogi Adityanath, SP leader Abu Azmi, BJP spokesman Sambit Patra, former BSP leader Swami Prasad Maurya, and Congress leader Pramod Tiwari sizzled with high-pitched, heated debates. Rajat Sharma led from the front by grilling Akhilesh Yadav and Amit Shah during the Adalat Specials.









































And the avid political watchers had a full feast of politics with top leaders including BJP’s Jagdambika Pal, Congress’ Salman Khursheed, Naved Siddiqui, Union Minister of State Anupriya Patel, BJP’s Manoj Tiwari, SP’s Udayvir Singh, BJP’s Bhupendra Yadav, and SP Leader Naresh Agrawal. India TV dished out for its discerning audiences yet another dose of fresh, quality content.

India TV MD and CEO Ritu Dhawan said of the huge success of the event, “The team strived hard to match the bar set by India TV’s benchmark on-ground initiatives, including the previous version of Chunav Manch. With the massive feedback we have received, both on the innovative format and content, our competition with ourselves has reached the next level.” 
“We are happy that we are keeping our audience happy with solid content,” Dhawan added, while highlighting the tireless effort that goes into keeping India TV content initiatives a notch up over the competition.
The ground event was managed by ThinkXQ.
