  1. Are you not crorepati, yourself. Do have iota of Idea about the property prices in India now? By the way election affidavit requires candidate to declare all tangible and intangible assets. I may not earn too much as of now but when I will inherit house from my parents when they will be no longer, will I not become crorepati then? I have been reading your answers on quora and only thing I can assess that your are hateful bigot who just spews vile and venom on Prime minister, his party, and anything associated with RW ideology. You just always paint one sided narrative maybe because of too much left leaning. You may have read marx more then your own good. Who am I to show a mirror when you are acting as an ostrich with head buried under ground. Your Hindu bashing, unabated bashing of particular ideology and muslim appeasement agenda won’t work now. Get some life, move out of your echo chamber and don’t be arm chair critic. If you really want to change the system, go out and contribute substantially, we don’t need your one sided opinions. Take a chill pill! Good Day
    P.S. I’m not a Bhakt as you people call us, btw even if you call me one, IDGAF to your views.
