    Will Modi ji ever explain the sources of hundreds of crores of funds BJP receives from unexplained sources. 70% of it is in cash. Modi ji refuses to bring political parties under RTI act so that their unexplained sources of funding never gets revealed. Modi ji is sleeping soundly in PM house while this poor farmer had to give up his life. Modiji should have started cleanliness drive from his own home rather than forcing poor citizens of the country.to stand in long long queues at the expense of their livelihood.
