In this episode, Sneha Richhariya and Suhail Bhat visit Haldwani to make sense of the eviction order in Haldwani’s Banbhoolpura area, issued by the High Court on 20th December.
We take a deep dive into the politics of eviction and demolition in India and explain how it has become a tool for the state to subdue minorities. We put all this in perspective by explaining the politics and legality behind it. We also look at how the people here are navigating through employment, housing and education. We talk to them about how they are trying to organize, mobilize and fight against injustice.
This episode features conversations with residents, lawyers, petitioners, social activists, political experts and others.
