PM Modi had to face protests during a speech for the first time while delivering a speech at the Ambedkar University in Lucknow during the convocation ceremony. 3/4 Dalit students shouted ‘Modi Go Back’, ‘Modi Murdabad’ and ‘Inquilab Zindabad’. They were evicted immediately.
However, other Dalit students welcomed them with much enthusiasm. They alleged that some students protested to seek political mileage and media attention.
