              PM Modi must have his own strategy to counter within party. In ASSAM , already a RSS run corrupt Syndicates news has occupied news headline while Chief Minister Sarbananda Government is fighting sincerely against corruption in Government machinery. This is the act of patriotic RSS in Assam.

                Ever Questioned yourself- What if Modi whosoever you think is non-corrupt is just having such image perhaps because many refuse to question him enough? If this excuse were to be given, tell me what proof you have of SOnia gandhi's involvement in UPA scams. SO we should absolve her of any responsibility? If not, Why should similar treatment not be meted out to Modi. afterall a person who's in a position of Power would've significant Questions to answer in case he chooses to not do much about it. ISn't it? '

                When I was used to read news paper when I was young I had an opinion that 50 of the news were right. Now in 2017 when I watch news channels I think they give 10 truth and facts rest is their agenda.

                  In general, not only Rajesh, any goon and criminal will find it easy to wear yellow-red robes (or even just a gamcha of that color) and go about all criminal activities as long as not caught red handed. In certain states, even after getting caught, rewards will follow instead of punishment. When this return to haunt BJP itself, the nation will already be in such a situation that we cannot even be happy that the smug BJP has learnt its lesson. It will be too late.
