    It is sad to note that the advice given by PM to the heads of offices through the Secretaries of Central Secretariat has no effect on the field. I feel that the intermediaries like Secretaries and heads of department & Offices have been adopting half-heart approach to the key issues like corruption, punctuality, accountability. Recently two of Central Secretaries that too from important ministries like Home and Foreign Affairs were give exit. Where are we heading?
