Few Questions which comes in everyone’s mind are
- She is a student of JNU, then why is she raising questions, when it is not her topic to discuss?
- Why are the students playing politics in their universities? They are here to study.
- Why are they attacking on other students and faculties?
- Students are the future of nation, if they will commit such acts, then what will be the future of country?
