Off The Cuff with Ramachandra Guha

Eminent historian Ramachandra Guha believes that if Sardar Patel was alive, he would never approve of making the 182-metre statue. In this episode of Off The Cuff, Guha also took on the first family of the Congress, decoded PM Narendra Modi’s rise to power and put in context the Jawaharlal Nehru versus Sardar Patel debate in a characteristically outspoken conversation with ThePrint’s editor-in-chief Shekhar Gupta and national and strategic affairs editor Jyoti Malhotra. This was the first OTC in Hyderabad.
