    India's myriad problems with economy won't be solved with drama put up by the Gujjubhai drama-queen. He can't speak inside the parliament, but gives drama-queen presentations at non-consequential public venues, to the invited audience of his praisers. Most of that audience is made up of people from his state. But none of that drama helps with India's myriad problems with economy. Gujjubhai does not have a solution for any of the economic problems of India. Reason? He is not educated. The voters in India have been sending a steady message. Delhi, Bihar, Gujarat and now Madhya Pradesh. The message is simple: The BJP and the photoshopped joker are on their way out.

    India was going down due to the mourners those who can not see when the world economy is sliding down only Indian economy is one of those rising . Most of world leaders are praising this but some mourners are still sitting some where in grave yard and writing old stories . there is old saying "Actions speak louder than words" In Parliament most of opposition parties are doing drama for their personal or family and friends benefits nothing in the interest of the nation so do not need to reply there . did you check Kerala election or that is not part of India
