      Did NDA do, Boffors, 2G, Coalgate... ? No, NDA didn't do that. Oh.. Ya... So thinks RaGa the Govt betrays. Mr. Rahul hi, count on good thinks happened you find plenty. We poneered Transformation of energy sector (Solar), electricity distribution, Infra, roads, highways, Ujwala, Swach Bharat, pro-poor and pro-farmer policies, low price surplus fertilizer distribution, seeds distribution, great work in health sector - upgradation of hospitals, opening of multispeciality hospitals for rural and urban poor, high quality medicines at offerdable prices, Jan Dhan yojana, jobs, GST, digtalization, and many more. Reforms were administrative corrections, which was mess. This Govt supports income tax dept, ED, tax reforms, created business environ so, the market is all time high. Foreign policies and Modernization of railways were diamonds in the Crown.

          Rahul hi, as usual, does not know the meaning of the words that he writes. He is absolutely wrong and misleading. Unfortunately, he does not know the political correctness in the Indian politics.
