Two or three people in political parties expect that others should be bound by the decisions taken by them. IF the faults in their decisions are pointed out they brand those people as “whistle blowing politicians”.

I was spending my time in spiritual, literature and law. They forcefully pulled me into politics. They made me to contest the election and the people elected me with unprecedented majority.

Think about these things well. We will form the very best of local government bodies. The foundations for that had to be laid now. We all will get together to get the best of the solutions to our people, he said.
