Meanwhile Denhang Bosai, a former Govt officer of the DIPR appeal the anti-corruption volunteers to spare a second thought over their programme of marching to New Delhi in this sweltering heat.
Every life is precious. Marching to New Delhi in this weather, covering thousands of KMs is like a wild goose chase. It is fraught with danger and risk of life. There is a solution to every problem. Taking extreme steps like footmarch to the national capital can be avoided in the interest of all stakeholders, Bosai wrote in his time line.
