    The way Yogi went about his first few days it looked like it was all a show. When a Yogi who has a m ive mandate does nothing to stop such Goons in his party from abusing Office why should the people listen to his sermons on service and Nation. All same be it a Yogi,Baba or Samajvadi,when it comes to crossing the river

        It is not that they're bothered about the small toll amount, instead it is the madness of joy of Power and Ego attached to it. Let us see whether Yogi simply follows other previous governments by ignoring the incident or do something to control such rogues.

        Yogi tells everyone to be clean, pay taxes, work hard and be happy. But his party members go around as though they own the place. He should discipline these fellows if he wants to retain credibility.

                      Goons like this MLA are a curse to our country India. They are really standing against the ambition of all Indians who dream to see India emerging as a developed country.

                        It is grievous to see this kind of rowdy behavior from MLAs or MPs, most of whom belong to BJP. Added insult to injury is the fact that they are let go almost scott free or with meaningless reprimand , seldom any stringent or suitable action taken. Govt needs to protect its employees from these goons by handing out suitable punishment even suspending them from embly or Parliament. These goons have made mockery of the law.

                              Hope strict action would be taken on this guy to send a strong message to all elected guys who think they are the above law of the nation. First the CM of the state where ever he belongs should order an FIR or otherwise the HC concerned should take sumo to notice and order the proceedings against these guys Jaihind
