    Most of. The people who attended this meet are not fit to be called leaders, they have lost their deposits during elections, the real opposition leaders have refused to attend the meet

    Since the out break of Covid-19 only congress and opposition parties have been with poor and needy for free travel, food and shelter service while ruling BJP was only making big announcements of aid packages and promises but none have reached anyone. RSS, ABVP, VHP, HJV, SP, BD etc are not seen and heard even in Arnab Giswami's TV helping these people who have voted BJP. How can BJP abandon these people at the hour of thier need????????....

    Opposition ? Are you serious?
    Bianca Khan Vadra never stepped out of her bungalow for more than 2 months . Suddenly she was advised by her chelas on the migrants . She wore glasses to look like her grandmother , only to play politics and re-re-launch her career. Good thing her offer was rejected and the busses and also the busses that were converted from autorickshaw's were sent back. The Vadra Congress stood exposed.
    We have to wait and see what the new comedy is..
