  • The only good thing so far during this government is catching corrupt public servants red handed. I do not understand how vigilance deptt. has got so active now or is there are any special directions from the top. Whatever it be, corrupt should be exposed and prosecuted with the same enthusiasm.

  • Catching a corrupt officer is one thing and getting him convicted is another. We all saw what happened in the Ahluwalia case. Same will happen to this IAS. He will be back after some time. Already newspapers have reported that Sher Singh, the drug controller will be back soon.

  • I want information about Poonam Singhal/Mittal right now where is she and her address…………….
