Music in Jhansi[edit]

removed section

The topic "Buy" looks biased. The names of shops like

   * Seth Bandhu, 26 Gopal Neekhra. near manik chowk chudi wali gali ke pass" 
   * Nidhi Textiles associate partners. All types of cloth material wholesale and a fixed price retail shop. 
   * Jhansi is the city who diserve capital of becomming new state Bundelkhand 

are one of the thousands shops in Jhansi, then why have these two been mentioned. Also it seems someone who is close to these shops / shop owners has deiberately added the two shops in here. I have tried to delete these entries but someone continously reuploads them.
