We are a country of faith and this faith has to stand upon truth. Our PM makes a lot of promises. He speaks about farmers and youngsters devoid of truths. India is a religious country. A country where temples, mosques and churches co-exist. We go to pray in all of them.

“I went to his office demanding loan waivers for farmers. There was no reponse from him or his office. In Punjab, our government gave loan waivers in 10 days. Without the Congress party, the farmers in the country will not survive ”
