    BJP has this typical culture of touching feet of por leaders. This is sycophancy at its worst. They think touching feet will bring them in good books of their leader. The leader too feels flattered. This system should end to bring fairness in the party.

      Here is the case of the messenger being shot. The man who brought to light the corruption case against Gadkari and his company is being punished and penalised and the culprit is out there and all powerful as he has become a minister in the central government. The judiciary should impartially impart justice.

        Shashi Tharoor has expressed his views over Modi. Congress leaders have been mature enough generally to react to such situations. He has just expressed his thoughts honestly. He has also said that he would not criticising Modi if he does something wrong. So it is fair enough.

            Those are only allegations No evidences to back him up. Tomorrow I will file corruption cases against Kejriwal and will not produce any evidence but still demand his arrest. Is that really acceptable?

                Government should consider making training in Armed forces compulsory for all Individuals before they are allowed to graduate. It is must in many countries and even Price of UK had to undergo it and served in Afghanistan. It will make our youth disciplined and make them better citizens of mother India.

                    Yes Sir I agree with Mr Akshay's view because now days in this world self defence is must especially for girls and women but this self defence technique should be use for good purpose and not misuse it especially younger generations
