  1. what Government thinks? All people are blind ? we will never mind if govt. takes any same full action? Govt. need to explain the proper and strong reason for the same full act on ramleela maidan.

    After the same full act govt now announce the compassion but is this a solution? If govt thinks this is a solution so its my offer to govt ministers please come out we will do the same what the police did at ramleela and we offer you much more amount of compassion.
