What would be the good days from this which were limited to iftari in politics only. Today he is trying to prove self as Hindus. Some are wearing Janeu over the coat, some are taking a dip in the Ganges and some are reciting Hanuman Chalisa. The country is changing. This change is due to Narendra Modi and Amit Shah.
