To attract the young students politically, students of class X and XII were given NAMO pens with the inscription “I love Modi” for writing their board exams.
The ‘I Love Modi’ pens have been packaged in saffron cover. The pens have a picture of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) symbol ‘Lotus’.
School principals in Ahmedabad reported that they had received packages containing 5-10 packets of NAMO pens and each packet had five pens.
The pens were accompanied by a covering letter from the company claiming that they had sent the pens for distribution among students as gifts after taking the consent of the chairman of Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board (GSHSEB) R J Shah, and deputy chairman R R Thakkar.
