    Nobody should be allowed to spread terror in India. They must be eliminated. No politics in the name of religion as this matter is always raised by some sections of our society. A terrorist is just a terrorist. If they are threat to our security and integrity they must be dealt with iron hand. Good job done Indian Army.

      Bhartiya Danga Party PM and Gujrat Danga Overseer Modi wants to throw India in a conflict with Muslim army of Nuclear stan and Huge ant army of Nuclear China, yes Ofcourse but with a small caveat though, with hungry BSF Jawans and preventing them to go to social media for compliments, with proud to be beef eater Dangai kiran jijuju, with crazy joker Dangai manoher nana Patekar, after selling BSF Jawans food to the black market at half price, with forcing 5 lakh Jawans to do officer's boot polish and similar degrading work, with no benefits to CRPF, with a gun on people's head, after taking all their money and disposing of his own money. That's how he roll, so gangsta. PM Modi then wants to jump to a podium and do name calling and mudslinging. Yes Ofcourse but with a small caveat though, he want to do this with his signature bizzare hand gestures. Biggest name calla and biggest mud slinga. He then wants to seize all black money, yes Ofcourse with a small caveat though, he wants to do this by short cut of demonetisation. Biggest hoax pulla. PM Modi then wants to pour cow mutra down people's throat and apply cow gober on people's face for best shade results. He then wants people to buy patanjali product only using digital transaction, yes Ofcourse with a small caveat though, with a gun on people's head.
