Why else would you employ him??

Australian said:

No offense 2G. You must be jealous of his appointment over yourself who might have applied for the position. Obviously he is much more qualified than you do and earns the respect of his colleagues.

Look here. You can't even type a simple structure of an English sentence. What's more do you think you're qualified for the position rather than Jeevan himself? Mirror yourself before commenting on others.

Huh? said:

@australian. No offense, but I think it's you with a language problem. 2G was griping about the illogical press release, versus complaining about the new hire. You need to chill and read comments properly. You can also help yourself by ensuring your comments are grammatically correct before attacking other people's grasp of English.
