Amid the ongoing row over the sacking of Karan Sangwan by education-tech platform Unacademy over his remark to vote for educated candidates during a lecture, an undated video clip of another tutor has surfaced online where she is seen making similar views.

The tutor, “Babita madam”, works for another edu-tech platform called ICS Coaching Centre, which also has a YouTube channel – ‘ICS A to Z’. The widely circulated clip, which appears to be a part of one of her lectures, shows the tutor saying, “…when you’re going to vote…remember that you will hand them the responsibility for five years with aspects such as jobs, recruitment, standards of schools and colleges…this is why it is very important that educated people enter politics…”
She adds, “It’s a big question whom to vote for…all are the same….first, we used to think that the Congress party is good…we handed them the country from 2004-14 but the public was unhappy…2014 to 2024 is approaching where we have the Bharatiya Janata Party… However, when the elections will approach, they will all rake up the same old issues…force..Ram Mandir…religion will be part of election pitches and they will dig out each other’s past corruption reports…but no one will contest saying that if elected, they will ensure schools, colleges, health…”
