India Now, with Kapil Komireddi

May 2019 saw a resounding victory for Narendra Modi’s BJP, consolidating his grip on power. How will Modi use his second term at the helm of the world’s largest democracy? The Chatham House Director Robin Niblett joins Champa Patel, Head of the Asia-Pacific Programme, the novelist and columnist Sathnam Sanghera and Kapil Komireddi (The Malevolent Republic) to discuss the challenges India faces, with unemployment, slow economic growth, changing geopolitical relationships and a deepening religious divide all high on the agenda.
