The principal reminds the fake MMS case, and how they supported her, but this time, they feel cheated and betrayed. sagar says that he knows what betrayal feels, but still he stands for justice, and that ganga might have disappointed many by her behaviour, but despite that, he wouldnt want her to be stripped of the basic rights to education, and asks them to give in their opinion too. they write and proceed, while sagar’s father is tensed too.
