  1. would suggest to have sheds to issue fuel only for three wheelers in each aria so that it will eliminate lot of travelling issues and also will help to improve day to day business in the country.

  2. You are going to open the gate of Class Struggle. It may be the Haves and Have-nots; It may be Ruling 225+1 and the Ruled; It may be the Lawless and Law abiding; Whatever it is, you are trying to drag the country towards anarchy. There are incidents of Robbery by multi talented looters, who take away items from shops in many areas. Police have one standard solution. “tell us if you suspect anyone.” Surprisingly, non of these incidents are reported in the News papers. Every body is worried about lies and more lies by raw politicians protected by GR and RW. You can fool some people for some times, but cannot fool…….. We are still lucky, to have majority of law abiding citizens. But you politicians are not a good omen.
