Priti Gandhi expresses her anger
A tweet by Shehzad Jai Hind
ISI failed to prove that Jadhav is an Indian spy but Quint did.
This news has irritated every Indian
I dnt get angry easily. I think it’s very rare that I get pissed off. But today what I read on the Quint has irritated me to no end. As a citizen I won’t let this feeling be just another one. I am going to do something. Legal it will be.
