Next, Mahender Singh Manral talks about the message that Kumar had sent to the police on Sunday and explains why the police did not enter the campus. And last, Vaibhav Jha, talks about the school in Ahmedabad, where teachers asked students to write postcards to the Prime Minister expressing support for the Citizenship Amendment Act.
