“Lakhs of school teachers (are) without salary for last four months. Prem Kumar, Mangal Pandey and myself will return gifts like micro oven back to govt,” Modi said in a tweet. Modi, a senior BJP leader, also flayed Bihar government for justifying expensive gifts to the lawmakers on the ground that they are poor or they will use microwave oven to taste quality of Mid-Day Meal (MDM) served to students in government schools.
