  1. Howdy, Modi! says:

    So the viceroy of independent India, his excellency Narendra Modi needs all those security arrangements so that he can come and boast about how India is helping the entire world in technology.
    Mr Ganapathy went one step further called his favourite OM Narendra Modi, Lord Krishan and his corrupt BJP CMs the Arjunas!
    The kind of bull shit Modi spews out t finds its resonance in this SOM, who are ardent worshippers of this Lord Krishna!
    Invite this Lord Krishna again, next year at this time, when this Highway, has had one year of accidents, congestion, toll gates corruption, highway armed robberies, and traffic delays to reach Bangalore or Mysore, taking more than 3 hours, not to speak of the massive deterioration of the road condition of this Highway, etc.. where as the journey by express train looks better.
