Next year want Kapil Sibal to be given Padma Vibhushan award for his legal gallantry skills & loud statements of “zero” invention and take him into B-group of BJP so that Khangress is left with no legal lawyers to take up their cases
Given a chance, Google will ban Modi and BJP from digital space altogether. But Acharya Modi wants to show He is above the rough and tumble of politics. My tuppence – Modi suffers from a serious affliction of iwanttopleaseeveryonitis
Gulabh Nabi Azad – Political award
CDS Rawat – Genuine award
Kalyan Singh – Fully deserving award for he is instrumental for Ayodhya Temple success.
Happy to note finally Gita press gets its due recognition It is the north India version of GIRI trading.I have the stotramala which book I am attached as my late appa taught me slokas from this book.
Very deeply saddened to see that Gulabh Nabi Azad who was so obviously involved in the frauds and subversions in Jammu and Kashmir for so many years and part of the corrupt congress government/echo system is being awarded rather than being made by accountable for his actions. The Hindus of Kashmir who suffered under him must be so let down. It is alleged that he benefited from the Roshni Act which was specifically passed to loot the tax payer. The promise of wiping out corruption seems to have gone out of the window. Very sad. No hope for Bharat Mata.
