    Title is wrong, off course Middle class is huge class, they vote modi ji, but modi not done any work for Higher middle,class, n middle middle class, n lower middle class, ,this middle class only meant for paying taxes, govt consumed this money for attracting poor class voter, I think govt forget middle class, dynamic class, which support economy of nation, govt not providing job for middle class according to education, both unemployment, n under employment are main problem

    India is in shit whole ryt now. The people who supporting modi are just brained washed or they have nothing to do. Jobless. Hatred. Goons. If you see or pick a one sensible educated person all you gonna hear is India economy system is worst and it's worst like hell from past 70+years. Unemployment is in peeks. Business are getting dissolved. Big big manufacturers are in billion dollar debts. Mob lynching in the name of God. Hindu - Muslim riots. A agenda to make India a hindutva. Changing any colours into saffron. Disbelieve. Uncultured. This is not India what we thot we gonna have. There will be no INDIA in future. Either it will be a cemetery or just a piece of shit nothing else. Modi is a face of terrorism. Sorry to say this about our prime Minister but this is what is it. God bless India 🙏

    Instead of naming the video "why the middle class Indians love modi", you should rather go for "why me and my channel hate and propagate against modi".
    Though not a person who's someone's fan, but acknowledging the change within, and regarding, India makes me wonder how desperately the western channels emphasize on what the man hasn't done, instead of what he has. Pathetic is the word for you, mate!

    This reporter should learn the history of his country of origin before making a fool.of himself. Sardar did not use force to unify India. He did what he had to to protect India and her people. And we Indians are proud of him. Ill informed, hypocritical idiots like you should stay away from commenting on India's history. Churchill was a mass murderer. Have the courage to say that in western media?
    And no, the attacks in Pulwama were not by some suicide bombers. They were some by Islamic terrorists trained and supported by Pakistan! Have the [email protected] to say that?

    In India:
    The lower income group: loves Modi because he actually delivers free LPG gas, Houses, benefits directly to a/c
    The middle class: loves Modi because taxation is cleared, bureaucracy is faster, they can see taxes put to good use, and ZERO SCAMS
    The affluent class: loves Modi because he is business friendly and runs a clean government, gets foreign tech companies to share R&D

    The western media: "Modi will destroy India, Modi is a villain, all hail Scamgress, the Indians know nothing, we are their only saviors with correct perspective" WTF...

    Pull your head out of your ass you dumb ass presstitutes!!

    In India it does not matter which party comes into power. Corruption will never stop, it's corruption from the lowest level to the highest level. India is one of the most corrupted countries in the world and that is a fact! Look at the Prime Minister and the rest of the MLA's, MP's and Politicians... 90% of them are uneducated thugs, goons with a bunch of smaller goons providing the muscle. Government offices taking bribes, schools & colleges too in the form of a "donation (which means bribe in soft terms)" .. traffic police openly collecting bribes on the roads for traffic violations, crime police accepting bribes, and bribes distributed in towns, villages, cities all over for votes..most farmers in India live in poverty and financial ruin because they end up taking loans and the bank's and government harass them.. hundreds of farmers protest but they are chased off my force and end their lives by suicide...anyways apart from the screwed up judicial system and the government...court cases in India take decades to resolve and people grow old or die... Thousands of rapes in India and especially gang rapes and women are so scared to go to the cops because of their family names being ruined and bring a disgrace within the community... why can't the Indian Government just Hang Rapists and Murderers quickly ?? You read the news around India and you will be shocked about the rapes in India and justice not being served... All kinds of criminals to jail and get released within 5 years or less.. The politician criminals who go to jail in India get 5 star special treatment and that is a fact.. India beautiful with many cultures... Especially the country sides, beautiful hills and mountains.. most of the cities and towns have grabage scattered around with open drainage and people urinating wherever they feel like...If things were more strict with laws ENFORCED it would be better but it's unfortunate that the government of India is corrupt to the bone, the corrupt government is a cancer that cannot be cured. That the level it has reached. Here is a another shocking fact - Indian politicians, have more money that politicians from around the world, which is in hundreds and thousands of Crores of rupees which is millions of dollars. If the government starts to throw politicians in jail for such frauds (with no 5 star treatment) or just execute this cancer it will be better. So like I said in the start of this comment, no matter which party comes to power, there will be high levels of corruption (cancer), hoarding of money and gold, no justice and nothing will change unless revolution in some form.
    How many people agree ? Please give me your opinion.
