  1. Why Govt. DPE, nobody is taking reminder and agitation. The 2001 agreement is 4% hike yearly is not there but hardly one year is done, no put in the courts, but bad bank debts cleared, the court is placing judgment pending, so many are denying. Why not lodging Sumoto case, human rights act, common man survival rights,
