    Delhiwala Up, Bihar WB am J & K do not play selfish game of their own personal interest while electing Govt. These people may get some freebies equivalent to some change given to beggars. In return these people have to allow scamers manitors and anti national elements to multiply and take away nation's thousands of crores rupees as seen above and also in coal auction. Public will remain BEGGAR only politicans and Foreign Banks and underworld for parking these looted money florished.
