“Mein bhi bolna hai (Say ‘I’),” emphasised Kovind when Faggan Singh Kulaste who took oath as first Minister of State omitted the opening line of the pledge.
He again corrected V.K. Singh by asking him to say “tab ke sivaye” (other than that).
He corrected G. Krishen Reddy “vidhi ke anusar nyay karunga” (will do justice as per law).
