  19. good to know that you struggled to achieve what you wanted…salute to your struggle…..but want to know after becoming IPS, did you did what other officers did….licking boot of politicians OR you followed the , saccha path of IPS Dushyant singh whom you got inspiration to become IPS….
    …….everyone wants to become IPS , IAS, but after joining they , follow the system of corruption and licking politicians boots…
    …..if IAS , IPS follow their heart and integrity, no neta or poltician can make a mockery of the system with corruption , bribe and injustice.

  24. Congrats Manoj sir for his wonderful inspiration struggle.
    Now an important task is that Shri Manoj sir will be stand for country.
    I am struggling to highlight to ministry of health and Family welfare since 2020 to take some action to stop illegal activity to stop misuse of government funds.
    Every time on my RTI, MOHWF denied to reply by saying that ministry don’t have any record and refer my all RTIs to New Delhi TB Centre. I asked for photocopies of orders issued by mohwf. Every time they give unsatisfactory answers to prolong the enquiry. I pointed out the I am not getting the relevant reply from NDTBC. Ministry forward my RTI to get rightful reply, but don’t take any action and enquire from NDTBC on unconstitutional activities in the centre.
    In one of the RTI reply NDTBC ( NGOs pretending as autonomous) said institutions don’t need to do submit activity report to the ministry. Ministry is paying regularly without any observations. Government premises of thousands of cores is misused.
    Personal rule’s are made by NDTBC and coted the name of ministry in RTI reply . When ask for the reference of the order of ministry, reply was denied.
    RTI officer reply in always out of contents. Because she is backed by higher authority.
