For me all Regulators are loveable and respectable but recent contribution of Haryana regulatory team particularly during COVID 19 is matter of great appreciation as I am resident of gurugram(Haryana) and I am monitoring their involvement of day today services towards nation closely.
They are as good as our Army soldiers who are working like Fire Brigade team i e 24X7. The video which I am sharing is a small token of respect to Maa Bharati ke Lal for their unflinching and loyal service to the Nation. Our blessings to all team members matters a lot.
