Integrity vs Organizational Loyalty | 04 Jul 2023

Mr. Praveen Kumar, an officer in the IIS (Indian Information Service), is assigned to handle public relations for a government ministry. His role involves communicating with the media, preparing press releases, and managing the ministry's social media accounts.
