    Good move but it sounds half hearted. I am a BJP supporter. No Law with loop hole is useful as you haven’t specified time limit.

    Looks good on paper. But, will it actually work? I gave an assigment to anti corruption, gujarat, unfortunately, no results.

    will be useful and people will be benefited only if the implementation is really quick and 100% result oriented. if it fails the government will be at loss on governance issue.
