All i say is, you may have liking or hatred towards Narendra Modi. Try the electoral route to defeat him or try proving that the numbers he quote are wrong with facts and please don’t peddle falsehoods as facts.

P.S. Business Standard carried this correction in their news paper on Page 10 4th May Edition. Just putting it on record.
