Tulsi to go on fast unto death

Smriti Irani slams Modi, asks him to resign

I expected that he (Modi) would take a high moral ground and say fine, I step down. It is high time that Gujarat and Vajpayee got their pride and glory back which they genuinely deserved…to prove once and for all that we are a secular party which thinks in the national interest, any step taken in that direction should be welcomed,” she said.

Smriti Irani’s threat to ‘fast unto death’ till Narendra Modi took to sackcloth and ashes would have raised twitters of derision.

The slogan of ‘JAI JAWAN JAI KISAN’ doesn’t seem to make much sense as jawans are protesting at Jantar Mantar and kisans are committing suicide in large numbers. The Hardik Patel movement is not helping the government either, more so as it originates from the home state of PM Modi. The Jammu and Kashmir experiment is also not yielding result as cross border firing has become a routine affair. Onion prices are soaring high, industrial production is down and also the GDP figures are lower than expected.
