    Releasing person may have tough time..while releasing so big amount..while distributing all. Respected Modiji...If any short of funds..please incrase GST by 28% and petrol diesel price by 20%. We understand difficult time facing by the govt. Morning itself announced Rs.1000 crores to Bengal and Rs.500 crores to Odisha. Great..
