    How many have been booked for abusing Rahul, Sonia, MMS, Mahatma Gandhi etc? When will the witch hunt stop? Let people who have elected them have the right to abuse as well! Though I would prefer decency in Social media, but any personal insult should be countered. Arrest other forms of threatening is inappropriate. Social Media is biased because people are!
