Modi supporters, detractors clash during CNN-IBN show 'Open Mike'

Apr 08, 2014 08:20 AM IST India India

Meerut: Polarisation of voters just ahead of the elections in Western Uttar Pradesh has reached a fever pitch. At a recording of CNN-IBN's Election special show 'Open Mike' with its Deputy Editor Sagarika Ghose, clashes broke out between BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi's supporters and detractors.

The issue being discussed was whether there is a Modi wave among the youth in western UP. The show was being recorded at the DN college in Meerut. Polling in Western UP is scheduled to take place later this week.

While some said that there is a strong Modi wave in the country others refuted by saying that BJP is only active on social media and has no effect on the ground.

The full episode of the show will be aired at 10.30 pm on Tuesday. CNN IBN's special show 'Open Mike' aims to interface citizens with politicians and seeks to create a meaningful interaction on how real problems can be solved.
