    Government has to make the rule of at least 3 years military service to join politics.
    If they work with military than they will have love of nation and they will learn discipline.

    Commendable to see new gen Konkani girls that too from fairly conservative GSB backgrounds break new records and serve Indian Armed Forces! This should encourage more from the community and Konkanis all across
