India: Tamil Nadu poll 2016– Electoral promises: false or genuine?

Apparently governments promote corruption because ministers and high officals also want to make money though bribery and illegal deals.

Lalin’s Column: Splendor of a Revival -Jaffna

The first time I visited Jaffna was in 1961 for Captain, (later Major General) George Thevanayagam’s marriage to Ms Sanders. He was in the Sinha Regiment like me. This January (2016), we went with a close relative from the USA and her friend in the crack Chinese ‘Blue’ express train to Jaffna. Its comfortable compartments are all air conditioned. The seats, which are all reserved, can be turned round to face each other. The lavatories were spotlessly clean. Bookings can be made on line or at given stations.
