    We need to be religious and our youths, Catholic Sabha everything should also work beyond religion. We never do any single protest when there are burning issues in our country.

    I request Catholic Sabha to organize a Megha protest against the policies of the current government i.e GST, demobilization, CAA. We need not show support to Muslims because support usually ends with sympathy. One has to work with real heart which will bring out good results. Let's not work on caste religion basis. CAA is against our constitution. GST is still confused and never have a clear cut implementation and affected everyone of us very badly, digital India is introduced and poor don't even able to afford for a single mobile phone and demonitization is the worst plan done without analysing pro's and con's.

    Please don't be political but protest for a right cause.
