What people are saying?
Bharti Great day for Indian Judiciary. We witnessed so many disgusting and disturbing consequent judgements in the recent past years, which has shaken the conscience of people, as we strongly believe that SC is the last hope of justice. Long live Justice Ramanna.
khaisaar The government is lying as it did with Rafale deal. Sealed envelope business is no longer valid for escape route. France is investigating corruption in Rafale now. As for Pegasus is concerned it is an open and shut case. Only governments are sold Pegasus. Who else will snoop?
