Good Job, Dr Trivedi :)

One can't but support the action taken by the DC. But he needs to be consistent in his surprise visit to various State Govt. Offices. What about paying a discreet visit by posing as a hapless motor vehicle owner to the notorious Tinsukia DTO Office. Another office where nothing moves without greasing the palm of officials is SDC, Sub-Registrar Office. He needs to pull-up the authorities manning this office as employees are running a virtual bribery cartel in this offices. But then if he starts taking action enmasse, there will be hardly any official left in the state govt. offices across the district as most of them are neck dip in corruption, more or less. What about the Police Stations and Traffic Police itself accepting bribes from hapless truck drivers and motorists on the flimsy ground. But any way Dr. Trivedi made a good beginning. Keep it up.
