India TV's 'Chunav Manch UP' makes national headlines

India TV’s UP election conclave made national headlines when Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister gave his first and frank reaction on reports of family feud. Akhilesh Yadav chose AapKi Adalat at India TV’s Full-Day Mega Conclave “Chunav Manch – Uttar Pradesh” to state that he wants the final say on selection of candidates of his party for the coming assembly elections.

While UP’s first family showed no signs of recouping from the feud it has found itself in and while speculations were at its peak, India TV Chunav Manch saw UP CM Akhilesh Yadav and his Uncle and Senior SP Leader Shivpal Yadav in two separate exclusives, those had the entire nation, including the top media organizations glued.

Other big headlines came from no less than BJP National President Amit Shah, BJP State President Keshav Maurya, Congress State President Raj Babbar, Cabinet Minister Anupriya Patel, SP MP Naresh Agarwal amongst top National & State Politicians like Congress MP PL Punia, EX- UP BJP Chief Laxmikant Bajpai, Maharashtra SP Chief Abu Azmi, BJP MLA Sangeet Som, Congress Leader & Former MoS Home Affairs RPN Singh, AIMIM Chief Asaduddin Owaisi, Congress MLA Pramod Tiwari, BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj, SP Leader Ambika Chaudhary, BJP MP Jagdambika Pal, Congress Leader & Former MoS HRD Jitin Prasad, SP Spoksperson Gaurav Bhatia, BJP Spokesperson Sudhanshu Trivedi, Congress Leader Akhilesh Pratap Singh amongst others.

Commenting on the success of ‘Chunav Manch’, India TV MD & CEO Ritu Dhawan said, “Though we were sure that we will raise the bar for our industry peers with sheer scale and concept of execution itself, but we are elated to be able to match our audiences high expectations in terms of power content created through the effort.”

 “We compete only with ourselves,” she added while highlighting the strategic punctuation of a couple of Aap Ki Adalat Chunav Manch Specials.
