According to AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi-“shocking and strange”.”This is very shocking and strange that the government is now saying it will send rock bands to instill patriotism.Please define a patriotic rock band,This is a new form of diverting attention from real issues like job creation,not filling the vacancies in the IITs,slashing the research funds.”
According to BJP national spokesperson Nalin Kohli –“Whenever we talk about national pride or respect for your motherland, various political parties become very insecure, be it the Congress, the communists. We want the youths of this country to really become partners in this nation building to achieve a New India by 2020, when the nation completes 75 years of Quit India Movement.”
