              Only in up Punjab Gujarat ......why can't you come to south india ...we are also part of india. I wish we become separate from north India....every national news cover most news from north India , such as other part of india is not existing. Modi visited southern India not more than 10 times ....but he got lots of time for north and his foreign trips. I pray to God , we south india become separate . Big partiality by these north Indian leaders . Pathetic politicians.

                The ambitious central scheme aims to provide affordable houses to all those living below the poverty line by the year 2022. A great work by BJP govt for the poor sections of society.

                      This is another jumla, just before the elections. He has no real intent to do anything for people other than his friends from big business houses.

                          PM Said "This government is dedicated to poor people. We launched Jan Dhan Yojna so that poor people can open bank account" , So that you can get all their money to lend to your industrial friends and write-off when they default.. stop playing with life of poor..

                            What benefit poor will get is not being specified by PM.. Does our PM have any clue on the benefit for poor and downtrodden? Hordes of people emplo in small enterprises in unorganized sector are heading back their villages. Who will take the blame for This ill-conceived and ill-executed tamasha, where is RBI governor hiding. Was this the reason for ouster of Raghuram rajan.. and a Modi-Ambani stooge Urigit to come in. Too many question.. but our PM has no answer.
