  1. Mr. Modi must leave for another world tour after the very colorful “made in India” show at Mumbai. He is too gracious to keep his mouth very tight even while watching the proven rowdism of the party lawyers holding the weapons of back and neck breaking tools.

    It used to be the jobless street goons, but now the educated law keepers are marching with street rowdies. Foreigners, invest in the very peaceful India to have a very high yield with 100% ownership. The investors may have to face the same lawyers some day.

  2. While I have no sympathy towards anti-national elements calling for India’s destruction, the actions of these lawyers are also highly uncalled for. Nobody has the right to engage in physical violence. Whoever assaulted this ‘student leader’ should face the consequences.

    It is shame that ‘Bar council of India’ is maintained absolute silence on those lawyers who break the ethics of profession.What is the difference between lawyer who representing criminal and one act like criminal?

    Sabka saath,sabka vikas now is taking to the streets.Acche din ka antim samskar nearer.

    Jai hind
