  1. From where in world you guys find these news?

  3. According to my understanding of Administration/function in Beauraucratic Circles in our Nation, for the last seven decades during NCP and alliance govts, excluding BJP governance, the agenda had been to amass power and through its extensive use amass wealth and dis-proportionate assets under (then) Ruling Parties and their stooges, in key positions . Keeping this picture as motivation, a huge crowd of aspiring middle rung youth from rock bottom rural population paid heavy tution fees (by selling meagre possessions or made compromise with the family) to fulfill their dream of becoming rich beaucrauts by using their position (pelf) and power in India. Unfortunately for the compromised beaucrauts their speculations of Cong Govt. coming to power at Centre were dashed due to Modiji’s extention for another 5yrs as PM of India.
    Also, the changes in the APAR (Annual Confidential Report) in terms of gradation and also accountability and transparency in their work profile and well as increment linked to performance, etc such pre-conditions has caught them off guard and they feel vulnerable. PM Modiji has sent out a strong msg that dishonesty and insincerity to the Nation and her development will be crushed.
    This is the reason for anxiety and fear of Beauraucrats during PM Modiji’s governance today. Jai Bharat Maa. Vande Mataram. Sarkaar ki Seva Main, GN.
