Promises & Reality 2019-2023

Report Release 


Promises and Reality 2019-2023: Citizen Review of 4+ years of NDA II Government was released on November 27, 2023, at Constitution Club of India, New Delhi. The report release was accompanied by a panel discussion on the status of democracy, development, marginalized communities, and governance moderated by Prof. Nandita Narain with Ingrid Srinath, Dr. Dipa Sinha, Dr. Tanweer Fazal, and Avinash Kumar as speakers.

The keynote address was delivered by Hon'ble Justice Madan Bhimarao Lokur.

The contributors of this report include over 25 members of the civil society, including organisations, rights-based campaigns and coalitions, academics, and individuals – all renowned experts in their own fields. This report would truly not be possible to bring out, if not for the time and resources they provided for this entirely voluntary process.

The structure of this report is rooted in the aspiration to build upon WNTA's abiding focus on economic and social rights, while also expanding to review the status of civil rights - such as freedom of expression, freedom of life, and freedom of liberty - in the face of the shrinking civic space and the nature of challenges across sectors and communities. In that spirit, the report this year is structured around four broad themes looking at the status of democracy, development, governance, and marginalised communities.
