India TV's 'Samvaad' conclave stirs national debate

‘Samvaad ‘, the mega conclave by Hindi News Channel India TV instituted to take stock of the Modi Government’s first two years in office, saw an enviable line-up of participants both from the ruling & the opposition benches.

While the response from the equally illustrious audience during the Live Event was thunderous to the passionate debates and the stock taking one on ones, the deliberations at the conclave made big headlines in the national media.

Most part of the show was hosted by India TV Chairman & Editor-in-Chief, Rajat Sharma himself, while a few discussions were moderated by India TV’s senior news anchors. Lyricist-screenwriter and ad-guru Prasoon Joshi chipped in with his poetic and valuable contributions during the politically charged discussions.

In his welcome address, Sharma outlined the performance of the ruling regime, their pre-poll promises, people’s expectations etc. and highlighted the opposition’s charges ranging from rising intolerance to vendetta politics etc.

A few amongst those who participated in “Samvaad” were, Union Ministers, Arun Jaitley, Smriti Irani, Nitin Gadkari, Piyush Goyal, Dharmendra Pradhan along with BJP President Amit Shah, Yog Guru Swami Ramdev, Congess MP & actor Raj Babbar, Former Union Minister Salman Khurshid, AIMIM Chief Asaduddin Owaisi, BJP MP Subramanian Swamy, AAP Leader Kumar Vishwas, MP Maulana Mahmood Madani, BJP MP Manoj Tiwari, and JD(U) MP KC Tyagi.

The list of dignitaries who were also in attendance at the event included names like: Former Haryana CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda, Congress Leaders Motilal Vora, Jagdish Tytler, Janardhan Dwivedi & Ahmed Patel, Union Minister Dr. Jitendra Singh, Filmmakers Madhur Bhandarkar & Ashoke Pandita and Singer Malini Awasthi to name a few.

Speaking on the occasion, India TV Managing Director  Ritu Dhawan said, “We are extremely satisfied not only because we have been able to again raise the bar for our industry peers in terms of top-notch participation & execution that all India TV Events are known for, but also because we have been able to create outstanding content for our viewers, what we always strive for.”

“Look forward to at least a couple more such initiatives soon.” She added.
