A video of Rahul Gandhi cutting a cake with Manmohan Singh is viral on social media with the claim that Gandhi did not let the former PM cut his own birthday cake.
जिसको अपने जन्मदिन पर केक तक नही काटने देते थे सोचो उसने 10 सालो तक सरकार कैसे चलाई होगी
😃😃बस इनको एक ऐसा ही गुलाम चाहिए था और मिल भी गया😄😃😀
PM, की असली शक्ति क्या होती है ये तो आज पता चल रही है और इसलिए ही ये पप्पू खान और गुलाम परेशान हैं
