No grand idea was ever born in a conference, but a lot of foolish ideas have died there.







Opposition together could not bag even 100 seats-an indication

Closing slaughter houses in North East impossible

Modi has no danger from opposition !

Renaming Spree…

Congress sends a Delagtion to meet Hurriyat!!!
Yes they can because India is a Jamuriyat (Democracy)!!

But question is should Congress be doing so!!!
I'm sure most will answer with emphatic 'NO'!!

Recent Sting has shown Hurriyat's role to foment terror!!
Congress has committed a grave error!!

For decades they pampered the Hurriyat lot!!
Whatever they demanded they got!!

Congress in its desperation is willing to go to any extent!!
And that's why to the Valley Aiyer and rest were sent!!

Aiyer had even asked Pakis to help to remove Modi!!
Via his Chai Waala barb in 2014 Congress ki kabbar khodi!

Sonia by spearheading Presidential election Opposition unity!!
Is actually causing disunity!

Unless Opposition Leaders are daft and don't know reality!
And don't know who and what all has made Congress a casualty! 

And then BJP has the numbers to win!!!
Or could be Sonia is just trying to create a din!

To show....Congress is not dead!!
Some would say not dead but on the death bed!

'Try fixing voting on our EVM' EC has said!!!
This issue is now all but dead!

EVM was made into a issue by AAP to save face!!!!!
Stupid for a Party that in Goa came in 3rd place!!

AAP must foot Jethmalani's bill!!!!
And it's lose change for AAP as per Delhi's rumormill !!

Presstitutes express grief on KPS Gill's passing away!!
If KPS type was sent to Valley by BJP what would Presstitutes say!!

They'd cry and cry and say BJP is a Butcher !!!
Killing Muslims is BJP's culture!!

Bhupen Hazarika Bridge ...what a welcome change!
Congis must be finding this strange!

Because usually it would have been a Gandhi name!
Either Rajiv or Congress's Grand ole Dame!

Sonia may go to Rahul's bedroom to cry!!
'Compared to Rajiv ji and Indra ji Hazarika a small fry'!!

Confucius says.... why not a renaming spree!!!
Change all the names used from Nehru-Gandhi Family Tree!!

Court ruling over stopping toll charges on DND flyway

It was in November 2016 that the Allahabad High Court ruled for the Noida Bridge Toll Company to stop charging toll on the DND flyway connecting Noida and Delhi. The ruling was a result of some MLAs and small time politicians ‘agitating along with residents' Welfare Associations and going to the court. The judgment was erroneous in so far as the Court ignored some vital aspects such as loss of jobs for nearly 400 people, maintenance of road, taking care of breakdowns, smooth flow of traffic. Simply because the company had recovered its cost of investment was a fallacious argument. The Supreme Court did not give a stay on this order and asked the former much celebrated CAG to scrutinise the accounts of the company. Since then the driving on DND has become a night mare not only because of increase in traffic but also due to South Delhi Municipal Corporation having blocked one lane by putting up its own toll booth for collecting tax from commercial vehicles. The 'Goons'(Yes they look and behave like ones)of the contractor hired by SDMC stop taxis and trucks in a manner that blocks the smooth flow of traffic. A journey which used to take 30 minutes is now covered in nearly an hour or more. No action has been taken in spite of two Newspapers highlighting this past week. What purpose has been served by the High Court verdict in closing the toll plaza? I am sure the daily commuters on the Flyway would not mind shelling out Rs. 50 or so both ways for the sake of smooth run on this road. Will Apex Court kindly take note of this fall out of the court order?

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.
