It’s been two hours and the vehicles are stranded. What kind of dirty program is this? It shows the state of our condition, “the actor was heard shouting in a video.
Joju told media he questioned the protest because it caused problems for the public, but members of Congress alleged the actor behaved badly with them, including the female protesters.
