  1. If the emblem is used as it is with the triple faced lion head then it is wrong. If just the word “SATYAMEVA JAYATHE” in Hindi is used, IT IS NOT A COPY. IT IS A SANSKRIT PHRASE that any one can use in verbal or written. It is stupidity to say no one should use that phrase SATYMEVA JAYATE meaning “Only Truth Wins” for any purpose other than by Govt in its emblem. Utter stupidity not to accept that phrase by any one any where in the world as it is a statement of fact. Ultimately truth wins. OK Now Modi has won Loksabha elections by false poll promises and failed to comply with in last one year despite absolute majority which shows he is either a bogus person not intending to fulfill having won or incompetent to perform to fulfill all the Poll Agenda, while they were barking at AAP asking for performance in 49 days which shows that desperation and panic like a bunch of hooligans, a typical behaviour of our irresponsible and incompetent opposition parties.
