Corrupt Government Officials gives nightmares to the common man. They are very rude and behave like villains. They shout and even push to go out of their office, if ask, why they delayed the work. They must be made accountability for their corrupt practices and arrogant behavior. They should be told that this common man pay your Salary. Respect this Common Man. Finish their work within days or weeks and not in months.
