    Does PM modi have any reason to indulge in financial mismanagement?His mother lives on her pension and one bed room flat.His brother drives an auto for living.Modi himself is alone and does not require to amass wealth to serve his personal or family needs.When such is the reality where is the need to spend PM Cares fund on questionable deeds? Unlike Modi Sonia and Raghul are out on bail in the National Herald case matter.The less said about Vadras the better.When the entire country is fighting a grim battle against dreaded Covid-19 Virus and epidemic Sonia and the Congress and the heir apparent Raghul are indulging in cheap politics and petty political plays.this is highly unwarranted and condemnable
