India TV conclave Samvaad boasts of political stars on stage

If the super-charged atmosphere, excitement, interactivity and the supreme participation is to be believed, India TV’s Full-Day Mega Conclave Samvaad seems to have again hit the right chord with the audience, even with its second edition.

The who's who from the corridors of power were seen participating passionately at the daylong Conclave held to analyse the three years of Narendra Modi's government. Leading the pack was BJP president Amit Shah, fresh from his poll victories in UP, Uttarakhand, BMC and MCD elections. Shah went on to predict that even if the entire opposition united, the NDA led by Modi will secure a bigger majority in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

Another headline came from Home Minister Rajnath Singh who hinted at the imminent possibility of another 'surgical strike'. Surface Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari outlined his ambitious new projects. Textile Minister Smriti Irani said, she would love to have a live debate with her Amethi rival Rahul Gandhi, while Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad spoke of his government’s opinion of Triple Talaq.

The afternoon session delved deep into the controversial issues, including a fiery debate on the Ayodhya dispute, featuring MIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi and BJP leader Dr Subramanian Swamy and the Kashmir issue with pro-separatist lawyer Shabnam Lone crossing swords with J&K Deputy CM Nirmal Singh and Congress leader Manish Tewari.

India TV Editor-in-Chief Rajat Sharma, along with channel’s leading anchors grilled the illustrious participants including political heavyweights from the opposition benches.

In his welcome address, India TV Chairman Rajat Sharma outlined the highs and lows of the ruling regime and people’s expectations among other things while also drawing attention towards the charges made by the opposition, as he set the ball rolling for the day.

MD & CEO Ritu Dhawan on India TV delivering yet another hugely successful event said, “We are immensely pleasured by the type of unparalleled participation we manage to get for our initiatives.”

“Not only does an effort like this touches the audiences in the best of the ways, this gets multiplied with the scale of the differentiated sets we specially create. This eventually becomes an intellectual and a visual treat for our audiences,” she added.
