Nirmala Sitharaman is the Minister of State for Finance as well as the Minister of State for Commerce and Industry. She is also an alumna of Jawaharlal Nehru University in New Delhi. On November 24, the minister was in the JNU for a conversation with some students on various issues including the demonetisation drive. A student asked her a few questions on the same but before she could respond, he quickly cut her off. He kept on rejecting everything the minister tried to say, and was just not letting her speak.
