    In your BJP ruled Karnataka, thieves were snatching gold chains, forcibly removing them from women’s neck by fast riding motor bikes and pulling those chains away!
    Have your BJP ruled government + insisted on catching the the leader of the armed gang who smashed the jewellery shop in Mysore and took away the jewels? An innocent by-stander was murdered. The police commissioner then nwho paraded the gang members, would not say where the gand leadr was!
    You are a greedy immoral country, Look at your wife deserter Modi or your Yedi, the Lingayat leader who is facing corrupt charges!
