“I’d like to be a queen in people’s hearts but I don’t see myself being queen of this country”

M.R.SeniPramoj

“There are three ways to rule a country; by power, by bribery and by principle. Politics won by power risks being overthrown by power.

Even in the absence of its leader, the principle continues to live on”
