    As a public servant, please concentrate and improve our local problems first. We can give guidance to everyone under the sun but execution is difficult. If we are already advanced in many fields, why can't we apply in Karnataka? Why all are the poor suffering still?

    Well trained by Modi in FEKUISM. First you clean waste in Mangalore then in Karnataka and help and guide Modi to clean. In 2014, I remember he was acting as cleaning the streets in Delhi for photography. That is the first and last time in his life he shown Swatch Bharat. After that till today No. And this guy is FEKUING in Dubai. Arabs always consult with western countries and to carry the job they bring labours from India, because we are much cheaper in everything than western people.

    It is really Good to know the opinion expressed by one of our leaders, now Shri Ashwath Narayan. I personally liked it. Unless, some of us in higher ups take initiative, and also drives the point with the benefits and advantages involved we will not be able to progress. Prosperity depends on our initiatives as well as some painstaking hard work. So, let us therefore, encourage such persons who are doing something for our own good. I Wish to THANK YOU DEAR Sir !!!
