    Modi Sir, begins a project with his two hands raised thundering like a gladiator. But for some reason it does not take off well.. Maybe there is some problem with his backside - because it backfires!

    Today`s Demonetisation is the result inept handling of economy by Dr manmohan singh, he allowed to loot Rs 10 L crores in all scams and there was loot in all fields fuelling inflation and he was amute spectator ,only taking orders Madam Sonia. Today we are paying for the himalayan ber of MM Singh. So no use blaming Modiji.Also so many reputed persons have heped praises for this action bu Modi ,only MM Singh finds fault as he has to help all politicians.He shd have resigned long back and taken retirement from politics after seeing such high positions instead he is speaking for all looters.What is the credibility of Raja,MK,PC,Anand Sharma,Mayavathi,Mulayam

    PM Modi ji ..please do not ponder to even one demands of these corrupt hooligans. Public is with you. These hooligans do not want that parliament should carry out work for nation. If you ponder to one demand they will come up another one. Because they don't want to debate and work at all. Kindly do some thing to cut their payment for disrupting the work of nation.jj
