    Self proclaimed liberals and seculars are only seen spitting venom with their words. At least people supporting BJP have heart to recognize the achievements done by non BJP parties.

    Rajesh, you find it kuch-bhi ??

    Look at this - Modi goes on campaigning in 2014 shouting at roof top that Sonia Gandhi has black money in Swiss Bank that is sufficient to distribute @Rs. 15L per person. Vote for me, I 'll bring it back in 100 days of coming to power. Now what do we hear ? Jaitley says all the money that Indians have in Swiss Bank is not BLACK. Fair enough !

    Modi said AugestaWestland has paid bribe to Sonia Gandhi. Maa-Beta deserved so to be in jail which I'll ensure withing 100 days of coming to power.

    Modi went to each and every possible country to garner support to collect proof, traded Italian Marines for killing two Keralite fishermen for secret about AugustaWestland deal - what he got ? Babaji ka Tullu. Then, the got the Indian Coast Guards catch the fleeing Arab Princes and returned her to UAE in exchange go to Christian Michel who is supposed to have all the secrets about the chopper deal. What does the man say ? 'The Family' that was stated in his notes is 'Thyagis' not the Ghandhis.

    How do you expect us Indians (well, non-BJP supporters of-course) feel - Hmmm ??

    Kuch-bhi ??? It was by Modi, not me. Modi said Kuch-bhi to come to power and the voters feel betrayed.

    1. Vote for me, I 'll bring it back in 100 days of coming to power
    Pl tell me when did he said 100 days?

    2. Modi said AugestaWestland has paid bribe to Sonia Gandhi. Maa-Beta deserved so to be in jail which I'll ensure withing 100 days of coming to power.

    again, yes, he accused Maa beta... but tell me when he promised to bring jsutice in 100 days

    half truth and half lies does not justify the armament. Truth and only truth prevails.

    I searched heard his election speech videos just now in which he says exactly what I have told above. Go, search and listen/watch them yourself.
