  1. Dear readers,

    “Probity, accountability, impartial and fair investigation have gone for a toss ever since BJP has come to power at center led by Modi.

    As A.S.Mathew rightly predicted the dictator of Stalin era, India has never seen so larga scale of murders in the past shielded by the government.Pakistani born Former PM L.K Advani has guessed right of second ‘EMERGENCY’.

    Certainly if PM Modi and his Lt.Amit Shah can get ‘clean chit’. When Modi government openly defend ‘Saffron terror’ by asking public prosecutor to ‘Go-slow’ thourgh NIA, it is not difficult for Asaram Bapu or Swami Rahaveshwara to get bail. Where else other than in India murder accused can form political party from the jail?
    How does autonomous Election commision of India will register such party whose founders are accused in misappropration and criminal activity? How does their candidature in affidavit is legaly bound to qualify for contesting elections? How does our system will be clensed if we have loophole in it?

    Our PM sitting in Central Asia tweeting in some unknow Language , deliberately ignored the wide spread murders related to ‘Vyapm’ scam. Earlier state of Madhya pradesh is feared for ‘Chambal Dacoits’ now time has come to run for life from ‘Chouhan Darabar’.

    Ab ki bar Modi sarkar, Desh me hoga ‘Chambal raj’.

    Jo BJp ke killaf awaz utaiga, woh ………..

    Jai Hind
