Player Unknowns Battlegrounds or PUBG is an extremely popular game. Adults, along with teenagers and children, are getting addicted to this game. Videogames have always been a point of controversy and this new game is adding on to it. Recently, the Gujarat government issued a ban on PUBG in all its primary schools. There is no denying the fact that this game has also been a source of worry for many parents. The same was again reflected during Pariksha Pe Charcha 2.0.
For the uninitiated, PM Modi interacted with over 2000 students from all across the nation in New Delhi’s Talkatora Stadium in an event named Pariksha Pe Charcha 2.0. The parents and teachers were also a part of the same.
PM answered many questions at the events ahead of the approaching examination season. He welcomed questions from students and parents. One such worried mother, attending the Pariksha Pe Charcha 2.0 event, asked a question about online gaming. She expressed her worry about her son losing interest in studies and getting addicted to online gaming. She asked Modi’s advice on how to deal with this situation. Before dishing out his advice the PM relied on a witty tone, “Ye PUBG wala hai kya?”
In just splits of seconds, the whole auditorium erupted in cheers and laughter. When this news made it to social media then the netizens were not far behind in reacting. Let’s check out what they said:
@PMOIndia @narendramodi Sir fantastic answer… You know what is best about you, U are the way person of any gender, age, religion, caste, location, etc. would be able to connect with you and at the same time feel comfortable to connect back with U…. T-1

My son just came back from school and said his teacher has asked everyone to delete PUBG from the phones. This is Modi effect 😁👍🏻 #ParikshaPeCharcha2

Continuing, he further said this about technology:
‘Ye samasya bhi hai, samadhaan bhi hai, hum chahe hamare bachhe tech se door chale jayen, fr toh vo ek prakar se piche jana shuru ho jaenge’
(It is a problem, as well as solution. We want our kids to stay away from technology, but that will push them backwards)
After that he advised that the parents need to take initiate and speak with their kids about the boon and bane of the technology. You must be wondering why we are assuming it is scripted. Before that, check out the video:

There is no wonder that the answer is witty. However, the way the lady is asking the question seems as if she is delivering a rehearsed line. Now, we may very well be wrong but some of the netizens felt the same thing too. Check out their responses:
Pre- planned show by Modi. all Qes. n Ans. were fixed.

Exactly. Sab scripted hai. Now this will make news. It’s nothing but to connect with the youth voters. Jobs de nhi rha bhadua aur baatein chod rha.

For the rest of the event Modi extensively spoke about Scripted or not, there is no doubt that it’s funny. What do you think? Share with us in the comments.
