For farmers make a policy to secure their crops from “free roaming cows which along with other jungle animals ravage crops”

- Prahalad Swami 2 Cows per Family

(a) In longer run Milk of Cow and Ghee will make more contribution towards GDP and this will make Farmer self sufficient. (b) Every village to have one Gobar Gas plant which should be used as refilling cylinder for home cooking purpose. Gobar gas being cheaper and indigenous will save lot of money. Plant to be set up by Govt help with technology and maintenance for first 3 years. This will save lot of money and will help in Fiscal deficit target as well. (c) Government to launch two Cow per Family program in all villages. These to be donated by Government to Farmers Family to improve Livestock contribution to overall GDP which is around 4%. As per me this will increase to 5% of overall GDP.

Honesty to be encouraged and it should be rewarded. The honest people in the country be identified from all angles. The citizens should be encouraged to become Honest. The working environment should be developed in such a way that every person would do his work honestly. The honest tax payers should be appropriately rewarded.

To fight pollution we need antipollution trees like peepal, neem etc our forest are mostly covered with least utility tree kabli kikkar u can ask industries to pay volunteer for this process of removing kabli kikar and planting peepal, neem etc like cylinder subsidy u can ask people to pay for water like 1 or 2 ltr/day in their water bill for nurturing these trees the more of such trees the less pollution in terms of dust, air, noise etc and a healthy nation hope it reaches you.

- Deepak Bansal Price, Expiry Info

When buying soap, oils, medicines, groceries, soft drinks is a big headache. People need to search for price, expiry date, manufacture date by keep on rotating the product. Some are in little fonts unable to read properly, some times price will be in one place, manufacturing date will be in one place, expiry date will be in another place. Bring standards, all details in bold & printed next to the name of the products with white background. On Failure bring LAW for customer to reach consumer court for fine.

 -Easwaran Border Roads for IAF

My suggestion is India has over 1 million soldiers. Why not use them to build 16 lanes large roads for Indian air force plane to land along the border. It will also help tourism in those areas if there is good road. LOVE U BLESSINGS.

 - Dr Anil Kumar Proag Tax People to Death

Budget - Extract max. tax and let the people either perish or steal. Make everything costly so that citizen cannot afford them thus making them more corrupt. Buy more war planes etc slanting Make in India, borrow more capital from overseas for bullet trains and smart cities. Why Jan Bhagidari - myGOV is capable of making citizen fools. Eg see how myGOV implementing Swacch Bharat Abhiyan without even providing a waste bin. Jai Hind.

 -V Puskaran Overbridges

There is a meaning if VEHICLES waits for the signal, what is the meaning if PEOPLE waiting  for the signal and at the signal”. Please construct foot overbridges  OR underpasses at all the signals (or atleast at the main signals) where several people end up waiting with cows and traffic to croos roads. Really this is helpful for the people.[sometimes people not able to get the connecting bus OR trains]
