According to sources, Principal of St Xavier's College, Father Frazer Mascarenhas, wrote an e-mail to his students and even posted the mail on the college website that reads, "All the Human Development Index indicators and the cultural polarization of the population show that Gujarat has had a terrible experience in the last 10 years."

The email then goes on to contrast this with the Rojgar Yojana and the Food Security Act, and says that while these schemes have been dismissed as election sops, they are necessary for the well-being of citizens.

Many academicians and experts have criticized Father Mascarenhas’ move as it is likely to influence student voters, which they feel is wrong on part of an educationist.
