“Just came out of my meeting with Honorable Prime Minister of India Shree Narendra Modiji. Was very kind of him to spare his valuable time. Shared with him the overwhelming support that we got from people across the country through ‘Vote for Change’ campaign on SMJ (Satyamev Jayate) on the various issues that we tackled
in our show. He has assured me that he will look into all the matters,” Aamir said in a series of tweets later.

    Dear sir, " vote for change" has aleady come. Now,The change' for better life to everyone is needed the most. Better living for all must be a slogan now onward . India is on cross roads for change in a civil society and change in governance. How we can make this change for the good to all, together as citizen of India? Sothat equality, freedom and justice prevails to each one of us. The change must bring prosperity to rich and poor. We need to have a society without any discrimination and we need to have nation without poverty. We need to have lives with dginity and self-respect as a Indian. New age world is waiting for us to rise for the occasion. We must move forward in our approach to secure future of our nation. Our Indianness must be repected.

    Aamir khan is an opportunist. He has been anti-Modi all throughout- he supported Medha Patkar's agitation on Narmada dam, was pushing a biased film on 2002 riots and his Satyamev Jayate focuses on ills of Hindu society only. The organization that he advocates on his Satyamev Jayate programs is manned by all Muslims and supports Muslim insutions only. Now that Mr. Modi is in power he is out there to lick his boots. I wish PMO would not allow these rascals to set their foot in the corridors of power.
