Humaare pyaare RaGa ka naya fundaa!

He's like a Murgi joh rojj dethi andaa!!

 

Said Pakodas are cooked in Pressure Cookers!!!

You could see their laughter being controlled by onlookers!!

 

He was trying to make fun of Modi's Sewer Gas funda!!

Ended up with his face plastered with andaa!!

 

Because in Kerala its already underway!!!

Sewer Gas to Cooking Gas and this Tharoor karr raha hai say!!

 

Then RaGa repeated lie after which he'd done his hug act!!

'French PM told me no Secrecy Clause in Rafalle Contract'!!

 

You remember his hug and wink act in Lok Sabha!!

After which his supporters covered up idiocy of their Baba!

 

Aim being to say 'humaari tarah BJP hai ghoos khor'!

Abh iss jhoot pe hai RaGa ka poora jorr!!

 

'Humaara Bofors toh inn ka Rafalle' is his new drama!!!

Then he better invent for Rafalle Bofors waala Q Mama!

 

And what is Bofors compared to Coal , 2G, CWG scams!!

When control of Congress was Sonia Ma'am's !!!

 

A member of JNU Tukde Tukde Gang was missing spotlight!!

Just before he arrived at a Dhaba 2 men were havibg a fight!

 

But he fibbed they pointed gun at him and then ran away!!

Nothing like this took place an onlooker does say!!

 

Fight was over when he reached the Chai-wallah!!

Heard what took place and thought opportunity aala (come)!

 

Cooked up a story that he was the target!!!!

So that back on himself the spotlight he'd be able to get!

 

And of course give India a bad name!!!

Humme pathaa hai inn Tukde waalo ki kya hai game!!

 

Often when RaGa speaks irony 1000 time maarthi hai!!

Like he said one Family Telengana ko rule karti hai!!

 

And they are the one's who have benefited!!

With a 'fact check' he needs to be retrofitted!!

 

RaGa what did your family do for 60 saal!!!

And now Sonia wants India to be ruled by her Laal!!

 

General perception is RaGa is unfit to be PM!!

If by a miracle he wins would look for MMS type GM!

 

Zero responsibility and all the power!!!

GM would report to him by the hour!!

 

Confucius says... This duality tripped India for 10 years!!

But by the looks of it in 2019 India has no such fears!!

IEC- Bridging Govt to People communication effectively
  
Information Education & Communication (IEC) is  a platform to create grass-roots level awareness in different Government Departments by using local language and dialect.
 
IEC is the most important tool to target the audience for various welfare campaigns as well as guage behavioural changes in the masses.
 
IEC acts as connect between Government and grass roots level people and it is most useful in Health , Agriculture, Road Safety , Transport & Panchayat Raj as well as Rural development.
 
Social Welfare and both State flagship programs and Central government schemes impact on vote bank as 70 per cent of the population of country stays in rural belt . It is the most important tool in the democracy and  influences the vote bank for better choice  and better selection of government.
 
IEC influences the community , groups etc besides increasing knowledge and ensures feedback mechanism apart from facilitating interaction and facilitating a two-way dimensional medium with human element .
 
Being inexpensive, all media platforms-- be it Outdoor , Electronic are under one umbrella using cost effective mobile vans with artists ( Kalajatha Cultural Procession ) which reaches homes and engages people with spontaneous response.
 
 IEC can be more popularly used in ‘Swachch Bharat Abhiyan' (Gramin) for Open Defecation Free (ODF) campaign and project sustainability.
 
 IEC can also help with total sanitation campaign besides road safety by spreading awareness on dangers of drunken driving , not using seat belt and rash driving etc .
 
 The IEC platform can generate information on Labour group insurances , health programs for Below Poverty Line (BPL) families as well as Above Poverty Line (APL) families, Agriculture Capacity Building, Social Welfare Utilization of schemes ,  Scholarships and Mid Day meal schemes etc .
 
 As regards the 'Swachch Bharat Abhiyan' ( Urban ) ,  the significance of  IEC comes in helping to generate awareness about own flagship programs of State Governments and Central Government mainly that of Hon. Prime Minster’s welfare schemes .
 
 The other opportunity is creating employment for local artists in each and every State .
 
 The IEC  Kalajatha mobile vans with artists can make the audience to root the matter in entertainment by Nukkad Natak and Puppet shows with interaction and feedback .One more advantage is this creates huge number of employment of artists across the country as our concept is mobile van with artists and even for drivers and technicians.

National Security, who bothers ? Not atleast those opposing NRC

The politics over the final draft of NRC for Assam is really disgusting. Many of our politicians openly expose themselves as votaries of Vote bank politics and not bothered about the national interest. The fact of the matter is that this large influx from Bangladesh over decades has upset the demographic nature of the state. These infiltrators have got themselves included in the voters' list as well as obtained other documents - even Aadhar cards. Even if the figure of 40 lakhs left out from NRC may include some genuine citizens of India, the number of foreigners remains quite huge. The problem is that once the final identification is completed (may take years again) deporting them would be a Herculean task what with likes of CM of West Bengal threatening 'civil war' and what not. We have, due to this very vote bank politics, let this monster grow over more than 40 years instead of nipping the evil in the bud. Incidentally these Bangladeshi citizens are found in so many cities of India. Noida, Gaziabad, Delhi and elsewhere where their women folk are domestic helpers and the men ply cycle rikshas or do some petty jobs. At the heart of this problem is our corrupt Border Security Force personnel who let them come on some consideration and the police force of the city who regularly extort money from them to let them stay and work. National Security? who bothers.

DATA WITH RTI

Contradiction in the reply of PIO and FAA

Information regarding entry and departure timings of a particular vehicle as per the record book of a toll plaza was sought by the appellant. The respondent was absent at the hearing despite valid and timely notice of the CIC for which warning was issued to the concerned respondent PIO and Project Director, National Highways Authority of India. The CIC observed that the concerned PIO should desist from committing such lapse in future. The PIO claimed that relevant records are not available whereas the First Appellate Authority claimed that the sought for information is a third party information, hence, the same cannot be provided u/s 8(1)(j) of the RTI Act. The PIO and Project Director, NHAI was directed to state on affidavit to the CIC that the information provided on these points is factually correct, based on records and nothing is hidden therein.

Comments

The PIO should either take a prior permission of the CIC before abstaining himself from the hearing or he should send a proper representative to attend the hearing before the CIC after obtaining due permission from the CIC for doing so and after ensuring that the authorised representative is briefed appropriately.
