@ALL Can you please talking about the problem and blaming the Govt? What have we done from our part to root out this menace? we keep on giving solution from our end in different forums and discussion in various forums and never try to implement those things and just try to blame others and just speak, speak and speak about it. <NO ACTION, & NO REACTION> So here we should try to Act and just not speak about it and forget the next day.
