Congress' dynastic politics has shattered the hopes & aspirations of people. Congress hides behind the veil of secularism whenever its governance falters and its misconduct is exposed. This will no longer go unchallenged. The younger generation will not accept these actions of Congress!

This is the best according to me! Kalam is a true patriot.

Arvind Kejriwal is a typical politician now.
