Like we discussed in the first part of this series that a certain negativity is engulfing the entire nation. Riots are being discussed, Hindu Muslim Divide is being widened, minor scuffles are being given communal angle, Politicians are using students even their Dead bodies as weapons in their political warfare. And in this overly negative atmosphere, the achievements of the present Narendra Modi Government are being blacked out. This is an alarming trend. A country cannot be happy unless its citizens are happy. After the positive reception of the first part of Modi Government Achievements, I’ll try explaining how not everything is wrong with this country in the second and the final part of the series!
