        Congress could never have brazened it out without collusion of deep state it has created in six decades of its rule. If not for large section of media and dole fattened intellectual mafia, created and patronized by Congress, it would have been forced to answer many uncomfortable questions.

                what a great question ? similarly India would like to ask you will you tolerate Dadri kind of lynching ? Will you tolerate systematic murder like the one happened in HYD ? Will you tolerate riots and murders like the one happened in Gujrat ? Mr.Shah there are 100s of questions to ask you . India has no doubt on Rahul's patriotism . But India has doubt on your pseudo patriotism
