                    Modi is a data bank in which data is stored by the defense forces. When they need to retrieve the data they would do so from MODIJI. Can the citizens of India also store data in MODIDJI ? Absolutely inefficient PM. He does not even know what are his authority and responsibilities.May be RSS courses did not teach him about it. It is better for India if he resigns. Even Narasimha Rao was a better PM.

                            Has Modiji been briefed about the role of Pathankot the then SP in the entire shocking incident that led to the sacrifice of our brave army people ? Drug trafficking in Punjab has umed alarming proportion and terrorism is a bye product. Center should investigate the role of Punjab Govt. in handling drug issues.

                                    The questions and observation one could have.But the real thing is that, We as a Nation, do not have any spirit about our people at large. D ay n night we think about Politics and try to overshadow. Just For Information, Manmohan visited Mumbai when? How the CM Maharashtra along with his star son along with Ramu visited Taj at Mumbai. What action Manmohan and Sushilkumar shinde had taken immediately after attack. What was reaction of Mr. Digvijay in reference with Late Hemant Karkare ? All these fellows make and march with remarks only for the sake of upmanship and not with genuine love for country. Let Bagdadi and or Hafiz Syeed dare to attack such fashion on Israel and then see the Pants of Sharif and Hafiz and Badadi. So friends it is essay to express opinion with blare intention but just to score points and that too on National security.

                                        Khalistan coming --- DISINTEGRATION of India has begun --- Modi and RSS/BJP/VHP Brahmins are staging this "FINAL WAR ON ISLAM" to create Hindu Rashtra -- 80 crore Muslims of "India-stan-Bangladesh", Sikhs, Christians, Dalits, Tamils, Naxals and many separatist movements are eagerly waiting for this to happen -- Now they got a very good justification to break India and create Islamistan, Khalistan, Dalitistan, Dravida Nadu, Tamil Nation, Jesustan and so on.

                                          South India will become an independent nation before 2020 -- The potion of India is 130 crores -- South Indian potion of "Tamil Nadu, Kerela, Karnataka, Telengana and Andhra" is 22 crores -- If South India doesn't become an independent nation asap, the north Indian potion of 100 crore will take over South India -- NE people are NOT Indian by race. They are genetically Monan and closer to Chinese. -- Numerous Separatist movements funded by powerful Christian missionaries are waiting to create a separate nation called JESUSTAN by unifying 6 NE states Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland and Tripura -- Hindus are still fooling themselves by believing that they NE people are Hindus. They have become Christians and NE has become JESUSTAN long back and they don't trust Hindus any more ------ 80% are Christians. All NE state CMs are Christians --- They are all carrying proper Hindu caste name in paper for reservation benefits and worshiping JESUS in their homes -- India will disintegrate into South India, Khalistan, Kashmir and Jesustan before 2020.
