Right now, 19 lakhs will be found on many issues of public concern like jobs, contracts and equal work-equal pay.
He said, I said you are not tired, so your power of thinking and understanding has diminished. Intentionally made the corrupt a minister. In spite of tho-thu.

Your duplicity and gimmick will no longer be allowed to run?
