      Is it Modi's gift or India's Gift? Did Mr. Modi spent his ry to make this satellite? Everything in India nowadays is "Modi" prefixed. The PR team of PM of Gujarat (He did more for Gujarat than for India starting from converting their black money to white to helping for fraud businesses that pay less or no taxes) is enough strong to spread throughout Quora, Facebook, Twitter and even some sincere news and social media s boasting about his useless ideas, schemes, taking wrong credits..The achievements of Modi's Government are : 1. F2-ing 106 old schemes (F2 is shortcut used to rename in computer keyboard ) creditng to his acheivements. 2. Opening Zero Balance bank accounts to poor, warning them to deposit all their money in the name of Demonetization, restricting the money withdrawals by closing or making 89 of ATMs nonoperational. Then now minimum balance restriction and if not maintained heavy charges. (Contd.)

          Please read headline properly before over reacting .. it is south Asia they are talking about and neighboring countries not states... Too much of ignorance... be careful before commenting on honest politician like PM Modi... People like you are responsible for what India has faced in last 10 years before 2014.
