Sacking

Having watched comments from various political parties on Arvin's Kejriwals action in severing the rot in his cabinet is one only act boldly taken by a Chief Minister in the Independent India. All the parties are giving statics and numbers on the tainted ministers in Kejriwals cabinet because all is open like a book for everyone to know. Whereas, all other big or small parties shield, brush under the carpet their members misdeed, corruption name any act condemnable is safeguarded from public gaze and scrutiny. If per chance comes in the open the entire party acts to deny or deflect probity citing foreign hand or oppositions doing. Let the goods deeds, to make India corruption free and a country to live peacefully, be appreciated. The courage required to do this act of cutting away the rot should be lauded by one all and the political spectrum.

N ACKING OF AAP Minister

We all pray that CONGRESS & NDa follows his foot steps. Both these parties have NO MORASLS,STANDARDS or VALUES.
