    PM and President, fine, but why did you pressutes include the glorified mayor of Delhi in the headline. Is he more important than the CMs of actual states?

        We are blessed with a very dignified and well accomplished President now. Unlike his Congi colleagues running after sinny and raul, he maintained his dignity even when he was active member of Congress Party. He did not bend too much before 'Money' (sinny/raul). WE are only shocked at the behaviour of other so called leaders of congress, some of them going to stan and asking them to remove 'CHAIWALA', NOT ABLE TO DIGEST THE GOOD PERFORMANCE OF THIS 'CHAIWALA'. Such people are nothing but SHEER TRASH.

          Mr. Rajesh, I agree with you. Nice words are expected to be said at such occasions and therefore PM said, "Pranabadaa is an valuable et". It is OK for niceties but we feel enough is enough, he has lived life of luxuries, now time for him to pack off to "KOLKATTA".
