He said, “In a democracy, everyone has the right to protest (andolan) and oppose (virodh). But, I believe that protests should be peaceful and held in a proper manner.

“If in any protest, there is damage to the government’s property, then it means damage to the country’s property… In this country everyone has the right to speak their mind and peacefully protest. That’s how it should be,” Tripathi said.
