topic that was LINKING OF RIVERS CAN CAUSE IN-ECOLOGICAL DISASTERS, and gave 5 minutes to think on and jotting down points, I somewhat managed to write points.
Then they ordered to start speaking on topic, as one by one all candidates spoke theirs views, I tried 3 times to speak but some candidates did not let me speak, so I was silent then one girl sitting beside me said that friends candidate number 10 is waiting, all of you are not paying attention to listen her(thank God her, ) so I put my views, many were agreed on my points and then again end the topic with my views, so there was consensus between us, Sirs was looking satisfied, and then in second part of GD they gave us a paper in which quality of life partner were given which we had to prioritize and to tell the reason, points were:
Ability to mould in my family,
