                      People don't listen to outdated radio services. Maybe in our country only 10 percent listens to radio at present. If you have guts Fekuman then come to live chat and grivience redressal social medias and look for yourself the real problems faced by everyone. No one gives a S.h.i.t. about your one way no communication b.h.o.s.di.k e. kii baat

                        Will the PM please make the expenses made by the BJP in the run up to elections in the 5 States and the mode of payment.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Is the BJP willing to go public with the payments mode used by the party and the candidates.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;On the rest,PM has already claimed that other than BJP all other parties are for Black Money,so lets leave them out as they are certified to be corrupt.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;May be PM can make the entire expenditure incurred by his party Public.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Or should this also be treated like Qualifications as strictly private affair and no need to be made public.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;As long as people are willing to pay 8 bucks for tea by PAyTM and not ask how the 100s of crores busted in a election were met.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Things arnt going to change

                          Awwwww he jumped to podium again yessss, Yes, it happened! Bhartiya Danga Party PM and Gujrat Danga Overseer Modi came out of hiding from an undisclosed location and allowed in MAn ki bat today, you know what that means, another psychotic episode of podium jumpin, name callin and mud slingin, yes Ofcourse but with a small caveat though, 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.

                                  The PM is a split personality. What is in his mind is never on his lips.

                                            Politicians need to revive their image and moral standing to command and dictate people.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Unless we see corrupt businessmen, politicians, goons and government officials brought to justice and locked up behind bars, believe me nothing is going to change.
