    According to me, no use of this type of protest. First UPA all partners must join together and name a leader. And fight under his/ her leadership. Then only results will come. Otherwise simply waste of time.

    In the face of oppression/misrule - 1st step is to protest peacefully and it’s not always for power or wait till elections, didn’t Modi was forced to announce free vaccine after strong protests from Rahul , SC and Mamta Begum ? People should make present government work for them by such protests and not wait for elections…. Otherwise Modi will run all policies only ADANI & AMBANI, Should the poor people suffer till the elections? The Sanghis laughed at Gandhi’s protests and sided with British but ultimately Britishers had to leave India and Sanghis changed their name to BJPee to hide their gaddari….,😡😡😡

    Feku Maharaj's promised Ache Din are truly here!!!! Rejoice Bhakt log and keep singing praises for your revered leader!!!!. Pretty soon there won't even be enough money to buy a Katora to beg on the streets!!! Fuel prices hitting a century, prices of commodities rising exponentially, people losing jobs, no income!!!!! Where are all the Smriti Iranis & Nitin Gadkaris in the BJP who were shouting on top of their voices and doing all sorts of drama when fuel prices were rising during the UPA era? The current Pradhan Sevak too was doing all sorts of drama back then....what happened to them now? Shameless fellows have gone into hiding and only show their credit- hungry faces when they have to boast about something!!!
