  1. Instead of “advising” the PM, PC ought to go personally to “Shaheen Bagh”, and LOCKDOWN the gathering by sending them to their homes. BUT, he will never do that. These Congress men and women only want Modi, and India, to fail, in everything, so that THEY can replace him. THAT is all that matters to them.
