    the video clearly shows Rajdeep to be the one who picked the fight. He tried to ault the other person. A coward like him will only then tweet about others being s and he being a saint. This is his frustration at failing to stop the Modi wave.

    Rajdeep Sardesai is a Christian. The Christian clergy is anti-Modi because Modi banned (anti-consutional) conversions in Gujarat- and rightly so.
