Our mainstream media has gone so low at this point of time after few days they will cover what AK had dinner and what time he went to clear. We have so many full pledged states running assemblies day in day out where are these media friends in covering all those states. if these media channels are restricted to just state capital why we should call them national media

u r agaisnt democracy

Kejriwal ji , u have taken action against Tomar after getting the proof, I appreciate it,Any person can take action once you get proof, else u cant take action. Hope u know it. But the thing is you can't get out any MLA from parliament, this is against democracy. How you can do it, U have done it multiple times , once any MLA rise his/her voice against u, u just get out that person . Dont think you are King/God , u r selected by us.
