I had applied for renewal of my passport on Dec 31st 2007. I have held a passport for the last 20 years first one issued to me in 1988 and renewed in 1998 in San-Francisco. With over 6 booklets and visas to 26 countries, the passport was cancelled on Dec 31st 2007 with 2 live visas. I have made 3 visits to the local passport office and 4 visits to police station. I just contributed to our oil deficit. Our prime minister’s dream of issuing a passport in 3 days is a very wet dream for now. The only credible achievement was that I did not pay a bribe.
These are the governance fundamentals on which the economy is growing 8-9%. The government does everything to stall the progress of the nation. Every step to move forward will be blocked in some way or the other by a government official.
I have many recommendations for maintaining the security of the country. Population is not the curse of the country, it is our government and our people who govern, who lack integrity and character.
