"Pinarayi Vijayan, when asked about the Ram Temple shilanyas and Priyanka Gandhi’s stand, had this to say, "“I am not surprised by Priyanka Gandhi’s stand in this matter. The Congress party’s stand during Rajiv Gandhi and then Narasimha Rao’s regime are all part of history.
If Congress had a definite stand on secularism, the country would not have been facing such a situation today,”.

I am glad he is not surprised. Politicians should not be surprised at tactics and conveniences of other political leaders.
We, as voters on the other hand, have a right to b surprised, dismayed, angry or disappointed.

But then he says something I find funny-His reference to History and that if Congress had a definite stand on secularism, the country would not have been facing such a situation today.

STOP USING MY COMMENT SECTION TO SPREAD RSS FAKE NARRATIVE.

For the last few days I have been bursting RSS fake propaganda on Twitter and FB both. Now I am more and more convinced why people deserve RSS in power.

Who are these people spreading RSS fake narrative? 1/13
They are AAP supporters, AIMIM supporters, some "liberals" and a group of Muslims. (Read clearly, A GROUP of Muslims).

I can imagine what this must be doing to the Muslims who support Congress, those Muslims must be going through too much pain right now. So here it is. 2/13
AAP spreading RSS narrative against Congress is understandable, because they are RSS. Why a bunch of "liberals" doing that? +AIMIM supporters n a group of Muslims? Why?

First of all, you don't care about evidence. That itself is help to RSS. Your ignorance is bliss for RSS. 3/13

This is height of moral bankruptcy when a country bites the hand that feeds them and worships the oppressor, demands the opposition to be perfect and protects a inept govt which has failed in every front. This is much more than politics. 1/3
We are not here because we made a bad political choice but we are here because we crossed every limit in moral bankruptcy. The bad political choice is the outcome of that. It's not eyes that are blind, but the hearts. 2/3
We must try to change hearts and that's the ultimate solution. Or else it will become our vicious circle and the oppressor will keep coming back stronger and stronger. 3/3

“How can we expect righteousness to prevail when there is hardly anyone willing to give himself up individually to a righteous cause. Such a fine, sunny day, and I have to go, but what does my death matter, if through us, thousands of people are awakened and stirred to action?1/6
The real damage is done by those millions who want to 'survive'. The ones who just want to be left in peace. Those who don’t want their little lives disturbed by anything bigger than themselves. Those with no sides and no causes. 2/6
Those who won’t take measure of their own strength, for fear of antagonizing their own weakness. Those who don’t like to make waves—or enemies. Those for whom freedom, honour, truth, and principles are only literature. Those who live small, mate small, die small. 3/6

My neighbour broke into my house last night n smashed my 56" television set. He now refuses to leave n claims he owns this part of the house.

My eyes turned RED hot with rage! I retaliated by removing him from our building WhatsApp group n also blocked him on FB n Twitter. (1/5)
My pet dog Arban 🐕‍🦺 was very impressed by the sheer SUDDENNESS & UNEXPECTED nature of my move. He wagged his tail in approval & called it a befitting reply! 💪

" BUT DID HE VACATE THE LIVING ROOM AFTER THAT? "

No, he called the cops instead. (2/5)
But I told the cops in a very clear & firm voice that, "No one has intruded my house nor has any one captured my living room."

Puzzled by my statement, they asked,"what's the fuss all about then? Why have I banned my neighbour from the WhatsApp group? Who smashed my 56" TV?(3/5)

Is Modi's image more important than India's image n army?

1st the govt said there are no Indian soldier missing. Then the Chinese gov released 10 of our soldiers n it exposed the lies. Every neighbour country came to know that Indian govt is scared n lying through their teeth.
No wonder even Nepal deployed its army on Indian border which they never did before. The world is watching.

If the Chinese had not released them we would have never known about them. Our govt washed off their hands from the responsibility of getting them back.
The MEA issued a statement admitting that the Chinese incursion indeed took place. This was in contradiction to PM's statement.

An hour ago this page existed. Now it's not there anymore. ImageImage

Dear Delhi,

AAP spokesperson refuses to give evidence of AAP's work. @ArvindKejriwal is this how you govern?

Let's face the truth. I am starting a thread here of what u have done.Let's see how u block all these evidence.

Let's start with the basic, air &water of Delhi. #Thread
FACT:

Delhi is choking under @ArvindKejriwal . Forget about making it better, AK failed to maintain the prior standard. On top of that AK lied too. Delhi CM is a liar.

"Air pollution in Delhi did not drop by 25 % as claimed by AAP govt": Greenpeace

Delhi tap water is the most unsafe to drink in the country but the CM, Chairman of Delhi Jal Board blames others for his failures.

If you think you are alone and can't do anything about #CAB & NRC, here is a suggestion which I have been doing for an week and yes, it is effective. I have my time constraint. So I started it all alone. I give a few hours in a week.

I started by creating a human chain..Cont.
I targeted college students in a bhakt dominated area. I contacted the lectures who give tuition and from there I contacted the students who have been vocal on issues and want to make a difference. I made a list of 20 of them and called them home and met up.Discussed a few issues
and I filtered again. I got 13 on board. It was a 2 hours of discussion and I requested them to approach 10 families each and I extensively discussed how to explain the danger of #CAB and NRC. The main problem I faced is that 90% people have no idea about all these.

For clarity:👇

"In Dec 1989,the daughter of Union Home Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed's daughter Rubaiya Sayeed was abducted n the Centre had decided to harden its position in the valley. VP Singh govt was at centre with BJP's support. Violence was steadily erupting in Kashmir.
Despite opposition from the state govt, New Delhi appointed Jagmohan as governor, and in protest, the state govt, led by CM Farooq Abdullah, resigned. The state went under President’s rule. On the night of January 19, 1990 – the day Jagmohan was appointed governor –
Kashmiri Pandits left the valley in large numbers for Jammu and other parts of India.

"Insiders believed he facilitated the migration,And the very next day, Gawkadal massacre took place."
