None less than a couple of Aap Ki Adalat Specials conducted by IndiaTV Chairman & Editor-in-Chief Rajat Sharma himself was surely the highlight.

While the Political biggies took potshots at one another, certain sessions with heavyweights like BJP’s Yogi Adityanath, SP leader Abu Azmi, BJP spokesman Sambit Patra, former BSP leader Swami Prasad Maurya and Congress leader Pramod Tiwari, sizzled with high-pitched & heated debates. Rajat Sharma led from the front by grilling Akhilesh Yadav and Amit Shah during the Adalat Specials.

As the avid political watchers were having a full feast of political dose with top leaders, those also included BJP’s Jagdambika Pal, Congress’ Salman Khursheed, Naved Siddiqui, Union minister of state Anupriya Patel, BJP’s Manoj Tiwari, SP’s Udayvir Singh, BJP’s Bhupendra Yadav, SP Leader Naresh Agrawal, India TV dished out for its discerning audiences yet another dose of fresh quality content.
