    22 major terror attacks and not a single conviction! That is the REAL record of UPA.

    No amount of election rallies, sound bites, family show, running down BJP and its leaders can change this ignominy of Congress. DonÒ€ℒt be fooled by all the gimmicks by the party that has brought Bharat to the brink of disaster.

    Pathetic. We think Manmohan Singh’s government is/was a weak government. The fella is a pu**y

    BTW, is this what you wanted to say above: 22 major terror attacks and not a single conviction! (we fixed your original sentence because some seemingly wrong characters appeared in the sentence and the whole thing appeared garbled. If you think it’s wrong, we’ll restore your original sentence).

    Yes, that was the line I wanted to write. I am not sure what happened there – I will leave it up to you to put in there. πŸ™‚

    As for Manmohan Singh, he is an educated fella and a typical bureaucrat. He cannot handle a country. For hte mumbai attacks, when he came on TV, he was talking in this real sulking manner, it really showed how weak his “force” was. As a PM, you should have to instill ppl with confidence again but not him.
