    This is a historic moment! The nation may witness a dramatic change to end the mismanagement of Modi and his RSS gangsters. The same thing happened to Vajpayee government and he had to resign! Now for the 2nd time in history congress is going to prove that it can take along all the democratic forces of various parties and restore democracy and put an end to corruption and mismanagement by Modi and his business friends!

      What a shame. Clearly your views are biased. You have no idea about the work Mr. Modi has done and what India has achieved in the last years. Generations of congress rules and freebies has made you a blind follower of corrupt Congress govts. May almighty bless you with some good sense on see things in real perspective.

    Sure, let us impeach Modi and see how our nation will progress at the speed of escape velocity of Jupitee under the able leadership of Rahul. Ultimately we always get what we deserve!
