Instancer not following base geometry rotation

Hi Guys,

I am creating instancergeometry which is flowing on a poly cylinder. When the cylinder is static, the instancersfollow proper aim direction using goalNormal0PP. but when the cylinder is rotating, the aim direction of instanceris not following cylinders normal.

I suppose the particle is not able to read the transform data on poly cylinder, even though I have used nearestPointOnMesh to get the mesh normal and feeding it into aim direction of instancerattribute.

I followed this thread too but it works only on static geometry:

When I don'tuse AimUp I get this issue:

and when I use aimUp=<<0,1,0>>; the instancerkeeps it rotation during poly cylinder's animation, but I get this issue:

I hope I am making sense here, if there is any issue I can upload the mayafile also. In some real trouble trying to make it work. Help me out guys.
