    PM sahab main aik fouji hun. mere village ke sarkari school ke bachhe aap se milna chahate hai. Lekin unke pass achhe kapre aur dress nahi hai jo bare bare school ke bache pahante hai lekin haq to unka bhi banta hai kyunki aap unke bhi PM ho. Agar aap ke pass time na bhi to to hum aap ke gate ke aage khare ho kar aap ko aate jate dekh lenege. main bachon ko sambjha dunga ki PM sahab ke pas time kam hota hai. Kya garib bacho ke liye aap itna kar sakte hai.-MA BHARTI KA Sepoy-KRISHAN KUMAR

    You are missing on to remove high denomination currency notes one after another, in a due course of time, i.e first remove 1000 rupee notes, then after some months remove 500 rupees then come to 100 rupees notes, by respective notification in advance. That will help in curbing the generation of new black money, corruption, inflation, and rupee devaluation.

    It Will Also pressurise black marketers to into the main stream of banking.

    USA, the largest economy also don’t print beyond 100 dollar

    We should have a highly publicised helpdesk number from the formulation point to the delivery point of all the policies. This would enable a bpl person to know of the policies and whom to contact at the delivery point near him.

    Our great country can stay greater, not by spending more money on healthcare but by needing less for healthcare.
