India TV's mega conclave 'Samvaad' to take stock of 3 yrs of Modi govt

India TV, that has made a mark with its outstanding on-ground initiatives, is back with its mega political conclave ‘Samvaad’. The conclave shall coincide with the completion of three years of the Narendra Modi government in office. 

At this full-day affair, India TV will question the establishment to bring to the fore facts that matter to the masses in general and to specific strata of society, businesses or nation in particular.

This initiative will look at “the change” the present dispensation has been able to bring in and measure its performance vis-a-vis its manifesto. Samvaad shall also strive to highlight the agenda and expectations for the government’s remaining two years in office.

India TV Chairman and Editor-in-Chief Rajat Sharma will lead the charge, along with his team of anchors, to put to test the regime that arguably enjoys the strongest public support in recent times despite large-scale non-populist decisions it has effected.

The Conclave will have a galaxy of the biggest political decision makers and influencers from both the ruling and Opposition parties muscle it out. 

An impressive gathering of high profile delegates including top corporate honchos, media personalities and other newsmakers from across the country will take on the role of avid political watchers and analysts. 

The stellar line-up includes political bigwigs like Amit Shah, Arun Jaitley, Rajnath Singh, Smriti Irani, Nitin Gadhkari, Dharmendra Pradhan, Ravi Shankar Prasad and Rajiv Pratap Rudi. 

Influential leaders from the opposition camp including Raj Babbar, Pramod Tiwari, Renuka Chaudhry, Randeep Singh Surjewala and Manish Tiwari will be present, among others. Other top dignitaries expected to attend include Subramanain Swami, Mehbooba Mufti, Harsimrat Kaur Badal, Mohammad Salim, Badruddin Ajmal, Zafar Sareshwala and Dr Nirmal Singh etc.

India TV MD & CEO Ritu Dhawan, while announcing the second edition of the initiative said, “Put in simple terms, our friends from the media fraternity can most certainly expect big headlines that would obviously mean big political newsfeed for our audience.” 

‘Samvaad’ will be held in New Delhi on May 15.
