"I want to assure you that your demand is included in our government's manifesto and it is our sacred text. It has been a year for the government, teachers have to be a little patient. Our turn will come and if not then I assure you that I will be your shield and sword," said Scindia in an event organised in Kudila village of Tikamgarh district.
"If all promises in the manifesto are not fulfilled, do not think you are alone. Scindia will also hit the streets with you," he added.
He further said that he has requested the state government to work on eradication of malnutrition in 5 years. "We will remove the blur of malnutrition within our government's tenure," he said.
