  • This is not acceptable, what happened  to Prashant Bhushan, the way he was attacked...to take law and order into one's own hands is wrong.
  • I pray to God to give better sense to the sort of people who led this attack.
  • This is not our culture.
  • We have a lot of hope from the youth. But the youth who take law into their own hands wrong.
