The article should be neutral with regards to a certain government policies
- The inferences should be based on facts in the public domain/verifiable resources
- The tone of the blog/article should be optimistic
- There should be no negative criticism of any form, as we want to drive a neutral narrative around a particular policy, wherein our audience should be able to understand the facts and come to a conclusion themselves.
- Technical articles should be a little shorter around 700 words
