With regard to the report, “Govt. orders all officers to turn up for Modi’s I-Day address”, published on August 5, 2015, it is clarified that the circular issued by the Cabinet Secretary this year for attendance of officers for the Independence Day Address of the Prime Minister is not different from circulars issued in previous years as per standard practice. The sub-headline that said, “Tone and tenor of Cabinet Secretary’s circular come as a surprise to many”, borders on sensationalism and an exaggeration of facts.
