Prime Minister Narendra Modi will take up the role of a “caped crusader” against corruption by launching a new online portal for public grievances.

PMO will replace the existing public web interface with a new portal called, “PRAGATI”. The online portal is getting launched along with prime minister`s monthly program of video-conferencing with union and chief secretaries.

The new portal will consist of nine sub-categories to register different matters of concern related to corruption within various government departments. The departments listed under the category of corruption are telecom, railways, department of financial services, ministry of power, petroleum, heavy industries, urban development, road transport, rural development and others.

The users also have the option of being more specific with their complaints. For example, harassment is sub-categorized into SC/ST, women, children, differently-abled. This gives people the freedom to expressing their problems and get heard too. There is also a category called ‘Police’ and it will also have sub categories.

Finally the PM will look into the issues addressed by relevant departments and discuss the loopholes with concerned departments through video conferencing on every third Wednesday of the month. He will follow up every issue until the complainer is satisfied and the issue is closed.

Human hair wigs have several advantages over synthetic wigs

By- Digital Hub

I prefer synthetic wigs as it isn't something that I would wear all the time - just when I look different. Additionally, their ease of use is an essential factor for me. However, suppose you're looking to wear a wig for a fashionable accessory or as a way for you to show your personality. In that case, I'd recommend buying multiple synthetic wigs of various styles and colors instead of only the one human hair wig at the same amount. However, be cautious - only purchase top-quality synthetic braids that are more expensive as you might be disappointed by the new style you've chosen.
