I'm exhausted, but then the study must go on. Here's month four of the state of #OpEds in @IndianExpress @htTweets & @the_hindu.

April has been rougher than March.

It's actually been really really awful. In general, and for #OpEds too.

THREAD
Again, excluded Sundays since they're reserved for the usual columnists.

The quality of #writing has remained the same as the same writers have been writing here since time immemorial.

@IndianExpress had 130 #OpEds, @htTweets 78 & @the_hindu 122. #BringInMoreWomen
Of the 130 in @IndianExpress, women got only 18 bylines. This includes four joint bylines.

Their 'The Editorial Page', gave top billing to women ONLY ONCE. Wow. Aruna Sundararajan wrote on the lockdown dilemma.

1]It's #PoeticJustice,that i write a thread on the shenanigans in the #MDCALLIANCE on April 1st,a day loosely known as #FoolsDay.Sometimes you get the impression that some in the MDC are political fools.Are they ready to be a gvt when they aren't ready to be a political party?
2] #ZanuPF didn't win the #CowdryPark by-election,the #MDC lost it.They have learnt nothing and forgot nothing.I once argued that whoever resisted having the #MDCExtraordinaryCongress last year is a political tactician.The disaster would have been spectacular.
3]What we saw was just #MDC factional battles.It boggles ones mind how the #Mwonzora guy, misogynistic #Ndhlovu managed embarrassing votes yet he was the "official candidate".What makes the "unofficial candidate" garner more votes yet defying a party directive?
