Biggie about to exit Congress...

Kejri: BJP ko vote diya toh aap ko Dengue ho jaye ga!!
Delhite: Kejri ko vote milla toh yeh firr se bhaag jaye ga!!

Treatment ke liye ya launch honne ke liye!!
Ya firr samose pe samosa khane ya Chai peene ke liye!!

Ya firr Movies dekhne and giving reviews!!
Ya firr on Delhi Paan Shops giving his expert views!

Delhi Government spent crores!!
Praise on himself he literally pours!!

Paid Media gave rave review pe review!!
Apna falling stature Kejri ko nahi karta intrigue!!

Next he may give India the miss and look overseas!!
Maybe as an opportunity elections in UK he sees!!

He will damn May and Corbyn too!!!
And hold County Sabhas and maybe at the Queen also boo!

And then a fixed survey will say!!
In with Kejri and out with May!!

His ambitions know no bounds!
Even if the ambitions don't have any grounds!!

Congress should get ready for a Biggie!!!
Sonia is about to lose a Big Piggie!!

A Rajiv loyalists to the core!!
Going to walk out and behind him bang the door!!

In total denial Congi Bhonpus will say ...toh kya!!
'Uss ke soul pe God karre daya'!!

'Gandhis gave him so much otherwise what was he'!
And in chorus Congis will shout ...chee chee!!

Abhi abhi Dilli mein BJP pe there was Lovely Barkah!!
Though in denial Congress ko lagaa fatkaa!!

This TN Farmer issue has become a stupid joke!!
Iss pe lagao rokk!!

And some potbellied protesting Farmers look odd!!
Ho sakthe hai fraud!!

From eating snakes drinking pee now they will be eating poo-poo!
Lock them up in the Loo!!

There are Punjab Farmers in TN who've made arid land fertile!!
Why not adopt the Punjab Farming style!!

Appoint a new Guv and put J&K under Guv rule!!!
To tackle current situation apt tool!!

The BJP-PDP experiment has failed!!
Initially as a hope for the Valley it was hailed!!

Clear the Valley of Hurriyat Leaders!!!
And their Political Pleaders!!

Time has come to think out of the box like Major Gogoi!!
Who on the hood of a jeep ne kiya tha innovative way employ!

Confucius says...there is a time to play ball!!
And there is a time to take the call!!

Adds..Be fair but ruthless!!!
There's a huge price to pay if with Army or Cops you mess!!

Why is it called Civil Services Day ?

Civil Service Day held on 20th-21st April. Why is it called Civil Services Day and not IAS day, when only talk is about work of IAS officers and the award system is exclusively for them. Others can be allowed to do their work in their offices when this whole exercise doesn't concern them at all.

Transfer of RTI Application to several PIOs

A complaint was filed with the CIC alleging that the information sought was not provided and the complainant’s RTI application was transferred to several CPIOs who did not revert in a positive way. The CIC advised the public authority to desist from these kinds of practices which defeats the very purpose and motive of the RTI Act.


It is a common practice in the headquarters of many organisations to transfer the RTI applications received at their end to different sub-ordinate offices carelessly. Such a blind redirection of the RTI applications needs to be curbed as the same is not envisaged under the Act.
