Watch the complete footage and then decide for yourself. As the meeting was meant to discuss about Industrial Policy, I told let's not deviate from the topic and spoke about the vision of YCP for Industrial Development in the next 5 years. Spoke for 5 minutes, but media focusing only on 17 seconds to blow it out of proportion'.

Neither our party nor our leader will make a backstep. Anybody will know the actual truth if they watch the complete footage. If Media is really capable of changing public policy, What is the need for elections? People aren't mad to believe everything that's been reported by the media'.
