Meanwhile in Jaisalmer, Shafi Khan Samma, a Madrasa owner has alleged that district administration did not inform and make arrangements for Madrasa students to watch the programme. Several Madrasas could not make arrangements due to laxity of the district administration, he said.

However, district collector N L Meena rejected the allegations saying, over 1 lakh students watched the programme across the district and all the educational institutions had been well-informed about it.
