In Central Hall, senior advocate and Rajya Sabha MP Kapil Subal is in discussion with former CEC S.Y. Qureshi, ex-EC Ashok Lavasa and head of ADR, Maj Gen(retd) Anil Verma.

The Constitution mandates the Election Commission (EC) to conduct free and fair elections in India, the backbone of India’s democracy. But how free and fair are our elections today? Serious questions have been raised over the functioning of the EC in recent years particularly after the Supreme Court’s Order in May, 2023 about appointments to the EC.

Kapil Sibal explores the many aspects of how level the playing field being created by the EC is, with ex-EC Ashok Lavasa, ex-CEC S.Y. Qureshi and Maj Gen (retd) Anil Verma, head of the election watchdog, Association for Democratic Reforms (ADR).
