Samvidhan Live Reporting Yatra

Upcoming Lok Sabha election coverage is expected to be flooded by sponsored news and vehement debates on news channels. Most mainstream newspapers will scream “ground report” but the focus will be on mundane statistics and dominant political personalities. A handful of journalists will be touring states with an intent for reporting from the ground, but their scope will be around political camps. The focus of most independent journalists and public interest groups will be around issues in the state of Delhi, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, with a political lens.

Interestingly, the voice of Madhya Pradesh – a state at the heart of the country – does not resonate much in the national news. This despite the fact that in every election since 1952, this heartland of India has been very vocal in raising issues of national politics in the Assembly.

The Samvidhan Live team will be travelling to various Lok Sabha constituencies of Madhya Pradesh to hear the most resounding echo of democracy. During this tour, we will be looking at political development through a socio-eco-cultural lens focusing on related questions raised by communities.

Selected Samvidhan Live Fellows will have the opportunity to accompany us on this journey. We will be joined by some well-known and senior journalists in the country.

During the yatra, we will be documenting the experiences and learnings from the journey.
