People’s voice is being suppressed in a planned manner. The Chief Minister is in jail in Delhi. Ministers are being put in jail. The process of justice is becoming so long that it is taking many months to get justice. Hemant said- Everyone will get the court order in my case today. They should see it. You should assess the court order. You should see what is said in it. Today my jail journey ended.
