            Shut up paid troll. Don't teach us. First they did raffle did more than the twice of the agreed price. Now defence deal with Russia. Why the govt writes off the debt of corporate? That would have been more than enough defence deal. If you think money is paid as a lump sum you need to learn basic economics first.

                        Try to understand, there is no corruption in bjp led govt..what ever you pay as that directly goes to govt..when the govt becomes cash rich, it is able to award contract to big corporates like Ambani, adani etc., On the contrary, these corporates do infra projects and also pay for all expenses of govt such as collecting crowd for NAMO in India and abroad, they also pay for billion dollar campaigning by NAMO, they also pay for million dollar spending for media control, social network trolling etc..AFTER ALL THESE ARE FOR BRINGING ACHE DIN FOR RICH INDIANS...AND U NEED TO PAY FOR THAT

                                        If the trend continues like this, prices of both Petrol andDiesel shall be sky rocketed to nearly double the price of present price and only fifty percent of the tenure of saffronised party headed by NAMO has been ended. The lame excuse that the prices of crude oil has been increased is unacceptable, as during the regime of UPA-I and II crude oil prices at international market were @210 per barrel and the rate of fuels were as of the same now. Only due to manifold increase of domestic taxes in these products by the saffronised party people have to spend more money for this,besides triggering of immediate price rise of essential commodities. It is pertinent to note now crude oil price nowadays in International market is only $43.Good days had already arrived as promised by NAMO. We beg to him to return our very old bad days where we lived peacefully in those days with little bit burden on our family's budget which has been increased to manifold now. What about the promise made by NAMO about controlling of price rise of essential commodities? Is this the appropriate way to control the rising prices of essential commodities. NAMO Bhakhs definitely preferred to keep mum over this issued, instead drumming up to say India is progressing very fast under the dynamic leadership of NAMO, indeed(?).

                                          Supreme court should help the people of India . Because political parties gain votes by saying accha din etc. And after gaining power if accha din nahi laya then the government should be terminated from power. Now they know for next 5 years no problem so carry on looting people.
