Example of a system @AamAadmiParty is here to change:

In 1959, my grandfather lost his first wife and daughter (on way 2 hospital) as they could not reach govt hosptl in time on bullock cart which was 28 kms away. In 1963, my dad was born in that same hospital (28 kms away) In 1991, I was born in the same hospital (28 kms away). In 2022, my cousin who still stays in the village, had his daughter in a pvt hospital, guess where?(yes, 30 kms away but not in govt one as it is in ruins with doctors working in pvt). NOTHING changed for us in past 63 years

@RahulGandhi posted welcome tweets that had “neutral” twitter & journalists salivating as “this is leader we need”. Words mean nothing if it doesnt translate to actions. This thread highlights contrast between words and their governance in CG (my home state). Full majority/power. Against BJP’s hate politics. Now let’s discuss Dharm Sansad in Raipur which had all the footprints of involvement of congress leaders in the event. #NoHate… Image
