Rajya Sabha and Cabinet berth under ModiShah? Sad never expected this from him.— digvijaya singh (@digvijaya_28) March 14, 2020
But then Hunger of Power is more important to some than Credibility and Ideology the very essence of a Healthy Democracy. I don't agree to Sangh/BJP at all but admire their commitment to their Ideology.— digvijaya singh (@digvijaya_28) March 14, 2020
