            Another political stunt..needless to say there's gonna be a mandatory percentage to be paid by state govt in the scheme, allot of middlemen, a greater lot of red tapes and the aroma of another scam can be smelled already...bjp is playing majority card... the minorities, the middle class(upper and lower)..dedicate the whole budget to farmers(still farmers are unsatisfied). Then run a campaign to promote hindutva and show the majority the dream of establishing hindu rajya..just the way radical extremists of middle-east wants islamic state. Then make laws and bills which can be proved uncons utional for minorities. Then the shias and create a dispute between the community. Then wear orange scarfs, make kesaria sharbat and grab a pack of popcorn(patanjali made) and sit snd enjoy the show at RSS theatres exclusively. Give speeches which makes absolutely no sense other than satisfying the ego and creating a cringy political hypocrisy. 2019 elections - BJP WINS BRUV!
