  3. Congratulation!!

    People of Deoria has given mandate and has lot of expectations from you. I hope you will improve the basic requirements of people residing in town as well as rural area such as health, education, sanitation, road, electricity, public transportation and security for which Deoria is lacking behind. Also I would like to give attention on public administration, it must be corruption free as people from rural area are not economically so sound. They need help from police, revenue department and at block level but they are helpless to get the assistance from them. Whereas, it is duty of all public servants to provide all assistance, benefits provided from Government. I have narrated a little problems which are frequently faced by the poor people. I have written the above problems as I have faced in my life and I wish you will resolve the above issue.

    Thanking you,

    Dear Kalraj Ji:

    I have been trying to call you to CONGRATULATE you on your election as MP from Deoria since May 16. Have watched you on Indian TV Channels several times, and also news related to you on Internet India’s samachar.

    Today I watched you taking oath as Cabinet minister at Rashtrapati Bhavan. Immediately sent a text message of congratulations. I am not sure if I have your correct ph no.

    Just saw this Internet site, and felt sending you a congratulatory letter again.

    It was a great day in India’s history, when you have a government that does not need support from other parties for survival.

    Affectionate personal regards,

    GNR Tripathi
