A 10-step action plan for @annamalai_k @BJP4India @BJP4TamilNadu
Please read, share & amplify

Before #TNElections , I asked some farm-workers I know about their vote & the ladies, without batting an eyelid, said, "We're voting for the IPS Officer!"

I explained you were in BJP & as per your alliance, @AIADMK was contesting Thanjavur
They thought for a moment & said, "In that case, DMK!"
I was shocked & asked why & without any advice from @PrashantKishor , they said, "Because they're winning this election!"

You have tremendous grassroots goodwill; pl encash it

You can win the next election, if you do these 10 things:
1 Stand alone, not as part of an alliance with corrupt AIADMK: There is a widespread belief in TN that all politicians are thieves எல்லோரும் திருடர்கள்

Spoke in #LokSabha in response to President's Address

@PMOIndia is hesitant & afraid of even uttering CHINA's name? [1/n]
After 45 years China killed 20 of our soldiers & govt has insulted their supreme sacrifice. India cannot even patrol at the place where they were killed. China has occupied our territory in Ladakh, Arunachal Pradesh & Sikkim and @PMOIndia is afraid of even raising the issue 2/n
#मैं_आंदोलनजीवी_हूँ & I'm proud of it. Instead of constructing defensive border infrastructure in Arunachal, Sikkim & Ladakh, the govt has built it in #Singhu, #Ghazipur & #Tikri. Treatment ideally meant for Chinese soldiers is being meted out on protesting Indian farmers 3/n

#Thread: #VeerSavarkar - From the eyes of #MahatmaGandhi, #NetajiBose #IndiraGandhi & #Communists.

#Swantantryaveer Vinayak Damodar Savarkar, popularly known as Veer Savarkar was an Indian patriot, independence activist, poet, writer and a social revolutionary.

(1/21) Image
Post 2014, several allegations were made to malign the image of #VeerSavarkar.

Despite the availability of several documents in the public domain, some people chose to believe the blatant lies spread about him by #Communists/#Islamists and vicious politicians.

In this thread, let us try to understand #Savarkar through the eyes of some eminent and revered personalities throughout India.

🔸#MahatmaGandhi: Contrary to popular perceptions, #Gandhi was not at loggerheads with Savarkar.

Strongly opposed the 3 agriculture-related Bills in #LokSabha, as they will sound death knell for 20 lakh farmers, 3 lakh ‘mandi’ labourers, 30 lakh khet mazdoor & 30,000 ‘arhatiyas’ besides destroying food grain procurement system established over 50 years.

SAD was not involved in the consultative process & the party’s representative @HarsimratBadal_ had asked for #ordinances to be delayed till a broad consensus was achieved after talks with farmers. We conveyed this to Union Agri Minister too.
Cong has badly let down farmers of the nation's grain basket which fulfilled 80% food grain requirement in 1980 & supplies 50 % food grains even today. Punjab also sacrificed its water resources & produced rice even during drought.
