How many leaders would be exposed ?

In the political and bureaucratic circles Pranab Mukherjee, Former President's book is a talking points these days. Many ask that how many old time leaders, especially of Congress party, will be exposed ?

 

 

 

 

 

Who is responsible for CBI failure ?

After Allahabad HC judgment about Arushi murder case, CBI’s reputation has gone down. If sources are to be believed, it was a senior officer who reportedly delayed the decision about filing of charge sheet in this case. Who constituted the second enquiry team ?

 

 

Is CBI credibility at stake ?

Has CBI lost its credibility? CBI's alleged failure in 2008 Arushi murder case has eroded agency's credibility very badly. Even some retired IPS officers are of the view that CBI has to work hard to prove its credibility. Will govt take some measures ?.

 

 

 

 

Turnaround .......when ....where

I'm still in Shimla and today I meet my Respected Friend...retired senior Bureaucrat...at a Tibetean Eatery ..located between the Mall and Lower Bazar...and over Soups and Momos we get chatting.

Me: RaGa's Twitter account all of a sudden has taken the humorous route...like  one tweet ... Modi needs to give Trump another hug and with the tweet is a Donald Trump tweet about developing a better relationship with Pakis.....and.... Mausam ka haal ...aaj ho gee Gujarat mein jumlo ke baarish...

Respected Friend: But then both jokes fall flat...Trump is talking about developing relations with Pakistan on his terms ....and in Gujarat ...Garibo Hatao .... We will not spare the Corrupt...are two of Congress's iconic Jumlas....jinn ki baarish every election mein hothi hai...

M: And Mausam ka haal not too good for Congress in Gujarat ...bijli girr sakthi hai ...and a few more Leaders leave Congress. Actually just a lot of hoopla about the election schedule ... while the term of the current assembly in Himachal Pradesh ends on 7 January, that of Gujarat ends on 22 January. So technically Gujarat elections can be announced 15 days after HP.

RF: And HP is a hill State that requires much more preparation than Gujarat. Plus Gujarat just faced floods and relief work now being completed ....

M: Congress did pretty well in the Gurdaspur bye-election...

RF: Yes ... BJP should introspect ...though here the loss is more because Akalis gave this election a walkover and BJP fought the election alone.....out of the 1.8 lac votes that BJP lost by..... 70000 were Akali Votes that went AWOL..

M: But now Congress is in 'turnaround claiming mode'... when RaGa returned from US it was billed as a turnaround for Congress...now Amrinder saying Gurdaspur win is a turnaround for Congress..

RF: Turnaround because RaGa did not canvass in Gurdaspur... and when he was in US... Congis did not have to face brickbats because of his foot in mouths .... so they felt as if they'd been freed..this made them euphoric...maybe in their own way ..hinting .. RaGa should stay out more and more...

M: Sidhu says he joined Congress because of RaGa's clean heart...

RF: He was all dressed up and had nowhere to go... Congress for him was a face saver... no one.. neither BJP....nor AD ...nor AAP were willing to take him in......too big a mouth !!!

M: Does Taj epitomize Indian Love ..

RF: No way ...it epitomizes the fickle love of a man and sheer cruelty in its making!! Its design too is not Indian... but Mughal.

M: Its a beautiful monument ...but there is nothing Indian about it ...except its location ...and sweat and blood of Indians... our money.....our money that Mughals plundered and the blood sucking taxes we paid... and our labor!!!

RF: No wonders Congress seems to be so besotted with it ....its a classical example of OPM... Other People's Money and Others Providing Manpower !!!!!

M: Reminded of a joke... a Congi standing in rain.. covering his head with a expensive looking Shawl ...while he has his cheap Hawai Chapals tucked in his armpit. Someone asked him... why are you getting an expensive shawl wet whereas you are protecting a cheap pair of chappals... the Congi said... Shawl Baap ka Chappal aap (mine) ka....that is how cavaliar they are with our money!

 

We have a good laugh.... pay the tab and move out.

DEBATE (1) Banking reforms

Are Banks rejecting common man's loans ?

-If sources are to be believed banks watch dogs and the govt receiving number of complaints against banks.

In most of the cases loans are being rejected on flimsy grounds.

No fear in MCI

There is no fear in MCI and there will not be any from the fact that when you have tainted persons at the helm of affairs or his proxies. If this would not have been true, how come these private institutes would have managed to get unqualified/low level qualifiers NEET MBBS candidates in private institutions. Newspapers are filled up with ads and one is getting sms for getting admissions directly/booking your seats for MD/MS/Diploma in advance in Maharashtra, Karnataka, TN, etc. at low packages with their contact numbers. This is the audacity of the culprits in the system, they can get you admission in AIIMS, PGI, in different quotas on a remuneration of 50 L to 1 Cr claiming that everyone is hand in glove. Your computer exams are manipulated. This is a country which short of doctors, medical system is crumbling, where neo-natal death are like killing rats. What is this SC monitored committee doing ? It is just wasting time and is not improving the system. Why once for all it is not ensured that who ever has completed MBBS should be given PG admission without interruption instead of wasting 3-4 years in coaching centers, meaning thereby that your quality of education in MBBS is third grade that 99% are not able to qualify PG exam for years together. No one can understand the plight of a girl MBBS student. She is able to complete MBBS by 25-26, prepare for 3-4 for PG exam, when she will settle down in life, and who is going to foot the bill, the hapless parents. I am a frustrated parent of a medical student. I see no bright future for a medical student even parents and peers discourage to go for medical education.

Data with RTI!

Pension related issues pertain to ‘life and liberty’

Information about non-crediting of PF Employers share in account slips of 2013-14 etc. in applicant’s account was sought. The CIC held that the RTI request is concerned with ‘life and liberty’ and should have responded by EPFO within 48 hours. The CIC observed that if the phone/mobile or whatsapp, or email id is available, the EPFO shall use them to contact the applicant and to communicate the response. The CIC held that the EPFO is required to incorporate a system according to which the moment RTI application on pension issue is received, there should be a mechanism at the entry stage to discover and identify if it is a pension related grievance and then should start acting immediately. A show was issued to the Regional Provident Fund Commissioner-II, Sub-Regional Office, Ganjam to show-cause why maximum penalty should not be imposed upon him for not providing the information within prescribed timelines. The officer submitted an explanation and informed that a sum of Rs. 1,08,000/- will be credited into the account of the appellant within a week. The CIC found the explanation satisfactory and dropped the Penalty proceedings.

Comments

The view of the CIC that a grievance related to pension (delay in response, delay in fixation and delay in payment) should be treated as ‘right to life’ under Article 21 of the Indian Constitution and the public authorities shall do all the needful to address the issue within 48 hours extends the scope of life and liberty. The CIC has suggested the quick mode of communication while holding that if the phone/mobile / whatsapp, or email id is available, the respondent shall use them to contact the applicant and to communicate the response..
