  1. If I remember correctly it is first time that DA has been withheld. So far inspire of so many disasters, 65, 71 war. DA wasn’t held in fact while govt faced crunch the DA arrs used to be credited in to provedent fund and current was paid in cash.
    First time BJP so called Hindu Govt, filled it’s bags by asking public in shadow of Covid to donate new PM cares fund which is not under RTI , accountable to public., whereas PM relief fund already existed and was used for public so far and was under RTI if I am not wrong.
