  1. Modiji and BJP- what is going on? My daughter is in 11 standard and it is worrying me that the education system is being spoilt by you. What do you gain by it? Does it even make political sense to do this?

    Please act in an unbaised way against the culprits and bring them to book- whether they are from ABVP or BJP. It will send a strong signal. Dismiss Mr OP Sharma and people will praise you.

    Modiji- if you do not act then people will lose faith in you. Slowly but surely. Its in your interest to act!
