    My comment is that, anything regarding political issue, should not affect
    people in a bad way. People should not use all the social media for doing
    all the nonsence deeds.

    Thanks and Regards

  2. Ask the political party to repay the damage they did to the city from their party funds. Every time something happens these people damage the public property. They can do it without harm to citizens or public property. Come on grow up. Punish the one who did (as per the law), not the innocents. No one should break the law. Serious crime suites should be lodged against such parties/people/leaders.

  3. Sagar, I do except your statement, PMPNL or ST buses are not Hindu or muslim to make them target.

  4. This was the perfect answer by shiv seniks…why the hell people should hurt our feeling by doing such nonsence thing..
