    I think he is the most happiest CM so far, No responsibility at all. Only conducting meetings and visiting Delhi fortnightly. Visiting Temples, visiting Appu's house regularly to show his narrowness. Being a CM he should have visited to see the pathetic conditions of roads, flood areas, checking how much progress in school childrens books.we need educated and literate Government. Atleast he can learn from Kejriwal when he visits Delhi.

    It is the will of God to prevent this man going to Delhi for unnecessary reasons. Why he is going to Delhi? Cabinet expansion??? He doesn't go to Delhi to get our GST share or to get flood relief. Instead he is going just to satisfy his MLA's. God understood suffering of common man and prevented this man from going to Delhi burdening people.
