While taking the pledge, one can hear students saying that until the government won’t stop online examination, the students won’t vote for the Bhartiya Janata Party, nor will they support any worker from the party.

Further, they can be heard saying, “I also pledge, that within 24 hours, I will try to convince three more people to do the same. Also, I will make people aware of the corruption and injustice exercised by BJP in the village and the locality.” The video concludes with everyone saying ‘Jai Hind.’ Elections to Madhya Pradesh Legislative Assembly will be held by the end of this year.
