The show promises to put all political parties and politicians on the hot seat in order to get real answers to issues that have been bothering people for a long time, states a press release.

“As an MLA, I received tremendous opportunities to serve the people of BC and to gain knowledge about the complex political and social issues. I would now like to use my experience to serve people once again, this time as a radio host,” said Brar.

“Listeners of Radio India will have a host who has a unique insider’s perspective on important issues such as crime, Health, education, social justice, environment and the economy.  This experience can now be shared with our listeners and I am very excited that Mr. Brar has decided to join Radio India,” said Sukhjit Mangat, Operations Manager of Radio India.

The program will truly be a people’s choice program discussing issues that listeners want to discuss at the same time informing and educating people about important events taking place locally and in the world, he added.
