मुझे नहीं लगता कि इस समय कोई भी यह ज़िम्मेदारी निभा सकता है. हमारा वोट बहुत सही जगह गया है. हम पीएम @narendramodi जी का सिर्फ किरदार निभाने की कल्पना कर सकते हैं. वो जिस तरीके से एक सौ तीस करोड़ लोगों की आबादी को संभाल रहे हैं,उनसे बेहतर यह कोई नहीं कर सकता. मेरा सैल्यूट है उनको. https://t.co/DlVzkFr5Ny— Maniesh Paul (@ManishPaul03) May 12, 2020
