    How does a party like BJP who falsely claims to be a party totally against corruption allow a person who has been disqualified over corruption by EC to continue as Minister? This only proves that all tall claims of being holier than thou are just false claims. God only can save India.

          Thats fine. but when they will disqualify Modi and Irani for filing false educational details. Till now no one knows their real qualification and the whereabouts of their mark-sheets. For the AAP party MLAs all were quick to gather evidence but when it comes to Modi or Irani , everyone's lips and hands are tightly sealed.

            Do you think that EC can take action against Prime Minister or his Ministers, particularly if they belongs to BJP. Everything in this country, after 2014 general elections, were running as if like a dictator running the show. The opposition is spineless, lame and useless cowards, they do not have guts to question the BJP government's excessive misuse of power and money. Only people's power will teach these people a lesson, a bitter lesson. Let us wait for 2019 general elections.

              One day the entire fakism will come out. See what happened to Jayalalithaa. How many years she fought against the law. See what happened to Sasikala..? The cloud of doubt int he demise of Jayalalitha is on Sasikala. There is a natural law of return. Modi adorned power through fake allegations and false promises. The same voters who voted out UPA vote out the present regime as well...
