Almost all Indians will agree with BJP Mahila Morcha Priti Gandhi’s taste in ‘Indian Chinese’ food.
Eat Chinese food anywhere outside of India and it is so plain, bland & tasteless. The Chinese should be eternally grateful to the Indians for giving it that Indian touch & 'indianising' Chinese food!!

Former Uttar Pradesh CM and Samajwadi Party leader Akhilesh Yadav hits out at the Yogi government for snatching away food and blankets from those protesting against the Citizenship Amendment Act in Lucknow.
लखनऊ में भाजपा सरकार की पुलिस द्वारा CAA का विरोध करनेवालों का खाना-पानी और कंबल छीनकर ले जाना, शांतिपूर्ण विरोध के सांविधानिक अधिकार का घोर हनन है. ये निरंतर अलोकप्रिय होती जा रही भाजपा की बढ़ती हताशा का प्रतीक है. pic.twitter.com/qbjPJiTy29

Historian S. Irfan Habib is disdainful of NITI Aayog member V. K. Saraswat for his ‘bizarre & sick’ comment on the internet shutdown in Kashmir.
No wonder our economy is in dumps when Niti Ayog has perverts like V K Saraswat as members. He is a former DRDO chief and also Chancellor of JNU. His comments speaks about the callous attitude and disdain towards Kashmiri people. #internershutdowninkashmir

Looks like a thirsty consumer is speaking on a subject dear to him!
This Govt anyways had no clue on how to handle the Economy of India.
Now by limiting duty free alcohol from 2 bottles to 1 Bottle they are also messing with the economy of Scotland.

Economist Kaushik Basu tears himself away from commenting on what ails the Indian economy to watching the film Chhapaak — here’s what he thinks of it.
Marvelous film: Meghna Gulzar’s @meghnagulzar Chhapaak. Sad and heart-warming at the same time. A film to remind ourselves of how cruel human beings can be to other human beings, and also how good human beings are capable of being. A film to reset our moral compasses. pic.twitter.com/eVROIrNOt4
