      If we realy want that our country rise economically,our defence must improve,country should be cruption free we should give strenth to Narender Modi,he is a man whose total attention to make India self dependen and he is a good administrator but by heart is a sant.

      Akhilesh yadav should be the next c.m.of u.p. The political parties don’t do anything for u.p.for so many years..even Gandhi family never come to see even Allahabad or its’ murti’ making mayawati with so many gundas in her party I don’t understand why people appreciate for good governance..she is like torture and so much of show off..even b.j.p.at there times did nothing for u.p.after seeing akhilesh’s work they say they will develop u.p.
      It was akhilesh and his powerful mind he gave us more medical colleges free medical check ups I.T CITY in Lucknow the express way ..large world class stadium in Lucknow and many more ..
      It was because of the political hands of his father that he might not have worked upto the mark but recent evidences showed that he will have important role in making decisions if he is selected again..
      Even beyond MY factor his thoughts are to get support of every caste ..
      He can do better if people thinking goes beyond caste barriers..

      No doubt Akhilesh as the youngest CM has attracted all youth generation along with remarkable development in almost major and minor districts of UP. But I would suggest he should extend hand with BJP in rapid development of the country along with experience, dashing revolutionary, Sabka Saath Sab Ka Vikas idea of our great PM Narendra Modi . I believe he should get merge with BJP and take UP in leaps and bounce. Kick side the BSP and congress. As congress always keep country in debt and without any grow. Modiji brought India from Backest foot to the most front foot.
      Think not for self but for nation. After 60 yrs. nation feel fortunate to get service by NAMO.
      This is my folded hand request and thought.
