2020 has just begun and the political temperature has already soared over the fever-pitched battle of the Delhi Assembly Elections. All eyes are on who will rule the heart of India. Delhi will vote for the 70-seat State Assembly on February 8. The winner in this war will be known only on February 11. As India holds its breath over for the key contests in Delhi, News Nation is covering the state polls in most reliable way. News Nation’s extensive, trust-worthy coverage offers special programmes and array of new insight into the minds of Delhi’s new age voters.
Speaking about the unique initiatives to understand the ground realities of Delhi Elections, News Nation Editor-In-Chief Sanjay Kulshrestha said “Being the capital of India, Delhi is heart and soul of Nation. This makes Delhi elections the most prominent of all state elections. The electoral equations in Delhi are also completely different and complex from rest of the country - here neither the caste factor works, nor the religious issues dominate, because people from every section of society, religion and state live here. Due to its proximity to centre, Delhi is always under the lens. Interest of whole Nation drives media to pay attention to the minutest of electoral bustling in Delhi. News Nation understands the pulse of Delhi, and that’s the reason why it outshines its competitors in covering Delhi Elections.
