(Copy of Emails)
Rajkot. DT. 30-7-14
I thank you for Email with instructions to SP Porbandar for conducting informal meeting on 30:07:14. I had informed him 2 days in advance. On 30/7 also I informed him at 10:30 through his PA (!) about my visit. Though I urged, he was not ready to at least take my telephone. The PA replied that SP saheb says that if any problem, CS may meet PMG..!! I requested to give phone for talking with me but he refused. He was already available at his office till 3:00pm but did not become ready to see me. Circle President was also accompanying with me. When your email was received I informed his PA because SP does not take any phones. We have to talk only with PA. SP and PA both were present at DO but instead of meeting us, he submitted a reply to RO and uttered humiliating words about union as well as PMG and said that vo mera bal bhi banks nahi kar shakte. PMG ko bhi Jo karna ho karle..me meeting nahi dunga air nahi j dunga..!! He asked PA to give reply to PMG that due to RPLI mela he cannot meet. In fact he was at his office only and reply to email was given in his presence. He deliberately avoided to meet us only to convey to staff a message that he does not consider any importance of CS or PMG. Nobody can say anything to him. Then again one more email was received and PA informed him but he returned to quarter. The PA came to quarter to hand over print of email but the SP said that PA should not say to anyone that SP is available. He went to check letter boxes of whole Porbandar city just to escape from granting meeting. He came to quarter at about 9 pm. We were waiting for him expecting good response and truly an invitation for dinner together. But he called for police by calling on telephone no. 100. The police came and was convinced that we union representatives were waiting for him. Sir, PM Porbandar was sitting in ground with us. Main office was already locked. ASP was also sitting with us. His most beloved PA was also sitting there. How it is justified to call police complaining that unknown people has entered PO and there is risk of big amounts!! This is beyond imagination. His attitude shows that he is psychologically imbalanced person and needs transfer to a safe place. It is urgently required that his PA may also be shifted at once. He has placed unhealthy demands to lady employees as per complaints by them. A memorandum is already submitted and written complaint of a lady PA will also be sent tomorrow. Kindly consider that now there is no alternate. We will meet you on Friday. Pl spare time.

Some excerpts from Union Budget 2014-15 related to POST OFFICE
Kissan Vikas Patra
Kissan Vikas Patra (KVP) was a very popular instrument among small savers. I plan to reintroduce the instrument to encourage people, who may have banked and unbanked savings to invest in this instrument.
To address the concerns of decline in savings rate and improving returns for small savers, I propose to revitalize small savings.
My Government attaches utmost importance to the welfare of Girl Child. A special small savings instrument to cater to the requirements of educating and marriage of the Girl Child will be introduced. A National Savings Certificate with insurance cover will also be launched to provide additional benefits for the small saver.
In the PPF Scheme, annual ceiling will be enhanced to Rs 1.5 lakh p.a. From Rs 1 lakh at present.
