Pappu...

 

sRespected  Friend... retired Senior Bureaucrat... still in Delhi... and today we meet at Kaake da Dhaba in CP... over Butter Panneer... Dal and crisp  rotis we get chatting..

Respected Friend: 'Was and Is' wordplay.... RaGa was dishing out lies on Rafalle ....lying is a Gandhi family trait....confirmed he is lying.... but whether he has the Gandhi  family trait... speculative..
fMe: Ha ha.....Sonia is a Dictator.....is RaGa going to be one.. again confirmed and speculative!!! 
RF: Stalin who down South .. lateral entry...is all for
Delhi
waala Pappu being the next PM!! By the way we have Pappus in every State...
M: Point to be noted... SP...BSP... gNCP.....TMC    .....none of these Parties is pro this proposal..

RF: Why ...SP and BSP showed they 'have a mind of their own' by not accepting Congress CMs swearing in invites...
M: Speaking of SP... reminds  me what a mess Aki created before exiting  the House he allotted  himself  in
Lucknow.... and see our Mama ji... Shivraj ji.... lost election... within a day or two vacated CMs residence in pristine condition  and left for his new abode with wife on a Scooter..
RF: These BJP Leaders are 'waqri' type  (different)....
M: And this reminds me.. Chattisgarh loss... one of the primary reasons was.. for three terms Raman Singh refused to reign in Conversions ... Bastar is now predominately converted...Convertors are anti BJP and ensure Convertees are too...
RF: At long last some justice for Sikhs....Sajjan Kumar sentenced.....  Life .... could only  happen during  BJP's stint....had Congress or a Congress supported Government been in power.... Congress's entire Eco-System would have stepped in to save these Murderers ....
M: 1 down....2 more to go.... all of them enjoyed political patronage.....they did what they did to show loyalty to Gandhis.... no one from their family had been murdered for such a reaction from them...even then it would be barbarous....
RF: What about the Cops... the Judges ... Comissions....who were part of Congress's Eco System... who helped these murders to keep Justice at bay...
M: I'd lost all hope....thank you BJP!!
RF: In the words of Salman Kursheed post Batla House encounter....now too Sonia may cry at night!!
M: Or like RaGa would say.... this morning she cried at night!!
RF: Congress's Eco System trying to hype the death of 7 civillians in
Kashmir.... actually stone throwers trying to thwart Army during an encounter...
M: Here see I've even corrected the Headline ... to show the true situation...Headline reads...7 civilians , 3 militants, 1 Jawan killed  in Pulwama gunfight ..... I corrected it to.... 7 Stone throwers and 3 militants killed. 1 Jawan martyred in Pulwama Gunfight .....
RF:
Punjab's Pappu... Sidhu... wished Sardar Patel.. Happy Birthday on Sardar Patel's Death Anniversary...
M: I think someone in RaGa's Think Tank used Punjab's Pappu to send a tacit message to Amrinder....Sidhu got a Stuffed Partridge  from Pakistan to present to Amrinder...message 'get stuffed'!! They must have explained the intended pun to RaGa and he must have been in splits...
RF:
Punjab
Pappu  did  not  even bother to check up  ..if importing such a stuffed bird infringes any Wildlife Law.. .
M: It does.... so now he's in a fix.... !!!! The Department for Wildlife Protection will confiscate it....and message to Amrinder stymied....
RF: A picture has emerged on SM showing a frail Parrikar with a tube in his nose conducting a on the spot inspection/survey... Darbaaris tut-tutting and saying he should not have been forced to do this..
M: Forced by whom... the man wants to live ......what's wrong with this... tell you Congress and its Durbaaris can go to any depths...
RF: Parrikar's concept is beyond the understanding of Congis and Darbaris...come what  may ....do your job...
M: Sentiment to 'do job what may' present only  in those who feel they have a duty to serve honourably ....not Rule....... Gandhis were/are Aishoholics who choose Workaholics to work for them....BJP .... the Leaders themselves are Workaholics...sadly they are burdened with a System that over 60 years believes in..... aaj ka kaam karro parso....

CGHS was not in the best of health

As it is, the Central Government Health Scheme was not in the best of health .It has become worse now. Previously one could at least get the medicines one needed after consultation from the doctors from the empanelled hospitals(Because the doctors in CGHS dispensaries have become dispenser of medicines only .They will just tick the medicines on the computer and handover the slip to you to collect your desired medicines. You got the medicines you have been taking regularly for your high B.P, diabetes, any heart problem etc. Now what they give are substitute drugs manufactured by little known companies in places like Noida, Gaziabad, Chandigarh etc. When asked why not the medicine of the brand name one has been taking for years the doctor shows helplessness. These cheap substitute medicines having the same composition are useless. For example I have been for years taking a particular tablet manufactured by Cipla for hypertension. Four months back CGHS stopped this supply and gave something else. Doctor said it had the same composition. After taking that medicine for four days my BP shot up making me run to private doctors. They changed my medicine. I bought my old drug from the market which normalised my hypertension. The other day when we collected all the required medicines from the dispensary all were unknown names and manufactured by little known firms. When we voiced our doubt about the quality of medicines even the doctor advised us to buy from the market so that we don’t compromise on our health. So CGHS is in total mess today. Will somebody care. Maybe all those responsible for CGHS are busy with the Ayushman scheme which alone will fetch votes for the powers that be. Who cares for Government employees specially the retired ones.
