The show focused on the promises and perspectives of the political parties with insightful deliberations on local issues like electricity, water, and education, and stimulating discussions on other issues like COVID-19.
The platform saw a diverse line-up of politicians from Nitish Kumar, Tejashwi Yadav, Chirag Paswan, Sushil Modi, Ashok Chaudary, Ravi Shankar Prasad, Randeep Sujrewala, Bhupendra Yadav, Shatrughan Sinha, Gaurav Bhatia, Gaurabh Vallab, Shivanand Tiwari, KC Tyagi, Sudhanshu Trivedi, AK Vajpayi, and Abhay Dubey.
“As the traditional door-to-door campaigning takes a back seat in the prevailing scenario, the significance of traditional mediums like broadcast is paramount in reaching out to the masses. Every election season, our flagship summit, ‘Shikhar Sammelan’, brings important discourses of the state and the nation to public scrutiny – offering a platform to leaders to put forth their voice and establish a connect with the voters. This time too, these stimulating discussions will be crucial in setting the tone for the upcoming elections.”
Avinash Pandey, CEO, ABP Network
