Admit Cards are usually a sign of difficult times to come. Whenever doled out to students, they are usually a sign that exams are nearer than ever and if one doesn’t buckle up now, they are in deep trouble. Though for some unfortunate students the Admit cards itself became bad news.

Since Didi’s government sees conspiracy everywhere, the minister in charge of technical education ordered to file complaint against the student – son of a daily wage labourer – accusing him of maligning the government:
