    All these things steadily increased after 2014 based on fake speeches, fake promises and finally betrayal after getting votes. Now he completely forgot people who voted him. He failed in fulfilling the promises and eventually results are coming out one by one on larger scale.

    Feel sad for involvement of such activates by our community guy from our area. There is much demand for manual workers in our area, we offer Rs. 800/- to 1000/- to male worker, even there is scarcity. May be this guy is habitual lazy, he want to earn quick money but to lead luxurious life. God bless him with sense to work hard and earn his bread.
