Round the clock Narendra Modi thinks of Country.Some times he has to take hard decisions which may be called as dictatorial.

Rajiv Nath

Paradigm shift in today's politics

There is paradigm shift in today's politics from earlier tricks & traits because focus has shifted from corruption to disintegration. It is evident from the fact that NDA' Modi Govt. is strict & adhering anti-corruption measures/operations supplemented with reforms & socialistic expenditure to bring-out best for the people at large with eye on inclusive growth.
So, Opposition parties had a minute observation after debacle / defeat of AAP's Student Wing in DUSU election than plunk changed from corruption to disintegration. Every move of Opposition is matching with Anti-National activities to draw a parallel by propagating through favored Media to establish an injury/victimize/indecency /injustice.

These forces have united and day is not far away when everything will be in black & white, visible to the common man /woman-who are they to whom they were voting in past and what good they have brought for them after several years of rule alone or all along in coalition.

You can very well understand this by having a true example, if you have to abuse somebody in higher-ups as an opposition you will never miss-out any chance as & when situation arises in the democracy normally, but what will have to the opposition when circumstances are shrinking of actual problem by effective Govt. of today then connive to manufacture/ create unrest by any means if to that extend to change the face created earlier like-"K" to "K" with little difference so the people may recognize their credentials & take them true by face value instead recognizing game behind whole orchestration to befoul the people in name of Social Justice & what not "Azadi".

Difficulties are with who oppose Narendra Modi but in what form-Challenges are:

There is no parallel to him & his Govt. Hard work & Nation Building

There is innovation formulated in each programme & policy implementation.

There is complete transparency in higher-ups including Minister, Senior Bureaucrats at every level of governance in just two years of rule.

There is level playing field with equal opportunity to bring-out best from every corner of Govt. activities to enhance people's participation.

There are so many good to write about Modi Govt. except one thing- why? -there should be more exigent action against Non-functioning Institutions as well as Entities based on Investigating & intelligence Agencies effective Network keeping National Security top most priority.

Keep on attacking Modi, he will never ever retaliate instead pick good from it & rest will be in dustbin. That's all. Jai Hind.

By-A Sach.

Tough policy towards Pakistan - a pipe dream

When PM, Modi cancelled Foreign Minister's meet just when he took over as PM, to protest against Pak Ambassador's invite to the anti-Indian Kashmiri separatists, everyone thought it is prelude to a tough policy towards Pakistan. All these appears to have ended as a pipe dream. Indian soldiers are getting killed like sitting ducks in Kashmir by Pak sponsored terrorists. Pak flags re openly flaunted in Kashmir. Pak Ambassador refuses to condemn the recent ambush and murder of CRPF men and instead cocks a snook at India by going to the extent of asking the invitees, a bunch of Kashmir separatists and pro-Paki traitors to our country who are invited to 'enjoy' Pak Ambassador's hospitality while dead bodies of our soldiers are being cremated and maimed soldiers are fighting for their life in ICUs. Pakistan and the pro-Paki anti-nationals in India, who were lying low since partition and who were allowed to stay in India courtesy Gandhi and Nehru, now think that Modi Government is week kneed and impotent and only can give bellicose threats. Government should first put our country in order. If Modi's bombastic election rhetoric of a 56 inches chest is true, he should arrest the Kashmiri separatists and those Indians who attended the birirani party under Defence of India rules and send them to Vellore jail in Tamil Nadfu, abrogate article 370 and allow displaced Hindus and Sikhs from POK to settle in Kashmir. All those Pandits whose properties have been confiscated by local Muslims at the point of guns and, ethnically cleansed, should be retrieved and given back to them. India should put ball in Pak's court by raising the issue of the forcible occupation of POK by Pakis and of ethnic cleansing of Hindus in international forums. Kashmir is not for Kashmiris or for a bunch pro-Pakis alone. It is made sacred by the blood of tens of thousands of our martyred soldiers coming from Tamil Nadu to Ladakh, Kerala to Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh to Rajasthan. No Government in Delhi can think of surrendering Kashmir to Pakistan.

Multiple RTI Applications seeking huge information

The applicant sought huge information pertaining to Income Tax offices. He also wanted to know the basis of conducting survey and search and the specific steps taken to stop tax evasion during the financial year 2013-14 etc. The PIO submitted that the appellant has filed as many as 30 appeals before the Central Information Commission seeking all and sundry information and despite heavy pressure they have made strenuous efforts to provide the information. He further stated that much of the information sought by the appellant is in the public domain and can be accessed by visiting the department's website The appellant stated that he had lodged a TEP against a medical store in early 2015 and wants to know what action has been taken by the department. He further stated that he wants a copy of the scheme for payment of award to informants. He also requested for a note explaining the method adopted by the Income Tax Department for assessment and scrutiny. The PIO stated that he will supply the information as requested above by the appellant. The CIC observed that once a certain information is placed in the public domain accessible to the citizens either freely, or on payment of a predetermined price, that information cannot be said to be 'held' or 'under the control of' the public authority and, thus would cease to be an information accessible under the RTI Act. The Commission hoped the appellant will take a careful note of the above judicial observations and refrain from filing frivolous RTI applications in future


Whenever one is seeking information under the RTI Act, the RTI Application should be focused and specific. Asking for voluminous information through multiple applications may lead to a charge of abuse of the process of law.
