  1. Narendra Modi is such a great leader who emerged as a world leader that he managed the entire fringe elements as a left-hand game. He is far more foresighted and intelligent than the elite, educated, or khandani Babus. It is at the right time that India came to the hands of Modiji. But for him, and BJP, anti-Indians and Hindi-haters would have slit this country into pieces… Yes, when virtue is debilitated, God will descend in the form of man…

    Jai Hind.
