    A man who did not even win an election, who wasn't even selected by his own people is been made the deputy chief minister.

    And now they are trying to get hindi another shot all cos this man was one of the main people responsible for operations kamala to topple the previous govt. What a shameless situation we have reached, and surprisingly, most people are okay with all these..

    Really wonder about your intellectual level bro! You have the cheek to compare this guy with MMS! You just can't compare a rat with a lion. Just do some research on the educational qualification, positions held in international institutions, lectures delivered to international audience including US Senate and UK Parliament, number of foreign countries who sought help to guide their economies.

    Well your Savadi is famous, I mean notorious only for his ignominious achievement of viewing a holy CD when the session was in progress.
