BJP is countering AAP’s performance pitch in Delhi elections with a communal pitch around the Shaheen Bagh protests against CAA. It betrays BJP’s insecurity.

Why news media is in crisis & How you can fix it
India needs free, fair, non-hyphenated and questioning journalism even more as it faces multiple crises.

ThePrint has the finest young reporters, columnists and editors working for it. Sustaining journalism of this quality needs smart and thinking people like you to pay for it. Whether you live in India or overseas, you can do it here.
