“He (PM) is systemically demolishing this country’s democracy, misleading the people, I request all the opposition parties to rise. They must expose the truth of the Prime Minister in the parliament,” he said.

CM Kumaraswamy further added, “On one side Narendra Modi is preaching to the country and politicians, on the other side, he is encouraging his friends to demolish democracy through black money. I will expose this now, I have the proof to back my charge, says Kumaraswamy.”
