Main aim of civil services not wealth but social service: Sanjeev Kaushal
Chief Secretary, Sanjeev Kaushal said that there is no better alternative to hard work and ability than civil services. “But the path of civil services is very tough and challenging. Civil services should not be done considering money as the main goal but social service. Brotherhood among each other is very important. Even during training, we are taught to socialize, no matter in which state of the country we are working,” he said.
