Tanushree said: aceIf you have money, you will get justice and respect but if you dona┬┐t have money then you will not get that. He has money and he got that money from Naam Foundation. It collects crores of rupees from corporate sectors for the upliftment of poor farmers. He has created his image as a poor man who lives in a small house. It’s a big lie and he is doing all this for show.” (IANS)
