This statement was in response to a sudden surge in suicides of students who were studying in coaching institutes in Kota, Rajasthan. He further talked about the marketing tactics of the coaching institutes which highlight the performances of only toppers to attract more students and said,

    We are considering putting some checks on their hoardings and boards. They market their institutes by highlighting the toppers but don’t say how many students study at their institutes.
