  1. When we lost our business and were forced into disputes becase of the indecisiveness of the government, modi, jaitley and hansmukh adia never cared. More than 1200 amendments a year was enjoyed by you all like you were playing piano. Now you are trying to repair your image by announcing reduction on gst rates but dont care. We had to bear the damage done by you. Now you have to face the damage from the people of india. Its too late! You have given us and our family some permanent injuries and i know you dont have time to think how, because whoever blames you is from the opposite party. हम न कांग्रेस को वोट देंगे और न bjp को। लोगों की पेट पे लात मार के आप सब अब अपनी कुर्सी बचाने का रास्ता ढूंढ रहे हैं।
