    The government action is like treatment based on symptoms which is not a cure. The government is controlled by the extreme forces which it nurtured. The government action to remove DIG Indran is due to these extreme forces. It shows how weak the government is. via DM Android App

    We sense some sort of politics behind these transfers.

    It has come to be accepted that the term "service requirement" actually means "political expedience"

    Why DIG Indran is transferred is anybodies guess. Every action of this government now is like fuel to fire. It shows the weakness of the government. Every act of the government shows its weekness. via DM Android App
