Kejriwal said youth of the country would come down hard on Modi if he does not mend his ways. "If Modiji does not mend his ways then very soon the youth and students will come together to teach him a lesson," Kejriwal said, adding, "I had said earlier, ‘Modiji students se pange mat lena’ (don’t mess with students).
