The Right People – Episode 11: Akhilesh Mishra
The Right People podcast series initiated by Centre Right India to highlight people who are not politicians or involved closely with professional politics. CRI talks to those who identify with centre-right politics from across the vast Right framework – economic right-wingers, libertarians, traditionalists, Swadeshi right, etc.
Undoubtedly, these groups bicker much among themselves and are not part of any monolithic Right; however, they all have their place in national politics as long as they represent a community of interests and values within the state. CRI recognizes this diversity and welcomes it, and The Right People tries to talk to different people to better understand their views and aims.
In the eleventh episode of The Right People, editor Jaideep Prabhu talks to Akhilesh Mishra. Akhilesh Mishra hails from Gorakhpur in eastern Uttar Pradesh and is an engineer by training, a graduate from Dhanbad’s Indian School of Mines. Growing up in Allahabad, politics came naturally to him says Akhilesh, and he was always right-leaning, even in college.
Akhilesh has been a not inconsequential voice on social media, commanding many followers and contributing incisive comment
ary through his occasional blogs. Quite active on twitter, he shows an uncanny knack for breaking down complex issues in ten 140-character tweets or less. CRI presents Akhilesh Mishra…in his own words..
