They need any person who does ‘Jansewa’ (public service). They do not desire a King. Krishna Janmabhoomi is just an excuse for them. It isn’t a public difficulty. The precise problems with Yamuna air pollution and excessive electrical energy charges have been fully ignored. If I come to energy, I’ll attempt to cut back the charges and in addition resolve the problem of defective electrical energy meters.”
