To commemorate the birth centenary of Deen Dayal Upadhyaya, the ABVP-affiliated Deen Dayal Upadhyay Shataabdi Samaroh Samiti has organised quizzes for children across Uttar Pradesh on 26 August.

In order to prepare for the quiz, school children from Class 9 and 10 were given booklets on the achievements of the BJP, the RSS, with chapters devoted to showering praise on the ideologies and iconic leaders of the saffron outfits.

The Quint decided to flip things around a bit. So we quizzed members of the Deen Dayal Upadhyay Shataabdi Samaroh Samiti about the RSS icon they were celebrating. How did they score? Watch the video to find out.
