Achcha toh Babaji chalte hai...

I chance to meet a full-time  Engineer and part-time History and Historical movie buff ..at a Coffee Shop. And as is common in Coffee Shops 'neighbours' get chatting .....

Me: What do you say about this Padmawati controversy..

Acquaintance:  Well first its not only about portraying Padmawati wrongly...but also underplaying the barbarism of Khilji... the latter for the Muslim audience...but of course!!

M: And just see what Political Parties who are decrying the Padmawati protests have done in the past themselves...Mamtha had clamped down on 'Teen Kanya' which was based on the controversial Park Street murders....and 'Kangal Malsat' which was critical about her Government and her Aide refused a Certificate to the movie..

M: And how can Congress forget Kissa Kursi Ka... Aandhi... Indu Sarkaar... and Kishore Kumar being banned from AIR for not agreeing to be Emergency's Bard..

A: Personally I feel it'll all dissapear once Gujarat elections are over... though the Karni Sena has nothing to do with BJP..but Rajputs are Hindus so Congress and rest trying to score brownie points by trying to show its a Clamp Down on Freedom of Expression...

M: Yes this I've noticed prior to every election some issues pop up and just dissapear the day votes are cast...

A: I had a good laugh when I read a London Proffessor cited to a London Court hearing Mallya's extradition case...example of Astana's elevation to Head CBI as a sign that such Institutions lacked Integrity and advising Court this is reason enough  for the Court to refuse Extradition ... so now Brit Courts will sit in judgement on promotions in India....

M: And then Mallya is an Indian Citizen..he's entered UK on an Indian Passport... how can UK Courts decide on CBI and ED investigating a Indian Citizen...in fact India can say...as UK is extra liberal with Criminals from other Nations that's why every Criminal runs from his or her Country and takes refuge in UK..in the name of so said Human Rights UK is encouraging Criminals and Criminality from and in other Nations..

A: And Mallya is no Politician to say its Political Vendetta... he owes Indian Banks crores...and he's been allegedly hand in glove with some Bank Officials to get loans that he did not deserve....and of course with help from Congress...but this does not make it a Political vendetta case...

M: So for all practical purposes on December 4 RaGa will be President Designate of the Congress Party....

A: Mummy nominates him... Mummy okays his nomination papers... as per Mummy's directions its a one horse race

...Mummy declares him elected...Mummy swears him in...

M: How come Congress does not Celebrate Grand Papa's birth anniversary ... seems Grand Papa's been declared Persona Non Grata...shouldn't Vadra be concerned....

A: So looks like Government is rejiging the GST rates...

M: Yup....  5% was the Poor Man's Rate... 12 and 18% the Core Rates... 28% only for Demerit Stuff..maybe there could be a new rate amalgamating 12 and 18% into 15.5%!!!

A: But then why include Paint and Cement in Demerit Stuff...

M: The effective rate under VAT regime for Cement was 30% and for Paint 26% ... so there's actually a 2% reduction in Cement and 2% hike in Paint. Both are revenue earners and putting these in Core Bracket would have caused substantial loss to the GST collection Kitty....

F: Yup ...some give and take to protect revenue...

M: What do you  think will be RaGa's first step post being made the President of Congress..

A: His Office will Tweet that as President he has to meet overseas Heads of Congress Party and so he will be going overseas for an extended period.....achcha toh Babaji chalte hai..

M: New Responsibility ..but same attitude....

"Is it not a failure of Modi on Corruption?"

"Is it not a failure of Modi on Corruption?" (Wic 21.11.17). It is true that crusade of PM against corruption has failed miserably in ministries/ departments in Delhi and also in states. In Delhi, no one is afraid of being involved in corruption. Corrupt officers are having protection of corrupt Private Secretaries (PS) of Ministers. Honest and straight forward officers are being removed from ministries while Corrupt officers are being encouraged even if they were earlier raided by CBI for corruption or are under CBI scanner for causing financial loss of more than Rs 500 crore to Govt in Le Meridien Hotel scam. PM has to see for himself at a personal level that honest officers are not punished/thrown out by corrupt officers or Minister's corrupt PS. PM has to keep a secret check on corrupt PS and officers. Otherwise his mission on anti-corruption shall fail miserably and may affect him in elections. People voted PM because they were fed with corruption of old govt. Hope our PM will listen and monitor corruption at a personal level.



Views about SAIL are correct

Views about SAIL are very correct. I remember that in 2001, there was scheme that Rs 2 lakhs fort emperors transfer Rs 2.5 lakhs for promotions in SAIL. And this is still continuing. Those who availed this scheme now reached top. One director select now was selected by PESB in 2015 and acc was scraped. This shows how influence was he. This man introduced the scheme in 2001. He was instrumentatal in demoting honest director commercial from director ship to ed level. If such persons are in top how do one expect sail will do profit? Pm should order for CBI investigation.


Data with RTI

The list of CGHS creditors to be put on website

The appellant sought detailed list of sundry creditors to each Private hospital (such as Medanta, Artemis, Fortis, Max, Paras etc) and the Government Owned Hospitals within the NCR region. The PIO informed that there are 390 CGHS empanelled institutions & Hospitals in Delhi. Earlier, due to heavy workload coupled with budgetary constraints, there used to be delay of around one year in settlement of claims of CGHS & empanelled hospitals which has dropped to around 3-4 months. The Commission directed the respondent to make proactive disclosure regarding the institutional creditors of CGHS & amounts due towards each of them.
A large number of government servants have complained of delay in reimbursement of the expenses incurred on their treatment. Many private hospitals had refused to be a part of the panel of hospitals approved by the Ministry of Health & family welfare where the government employees could take treatment. Hopefully, the public display of the list of creditors would expedite the payment of pending dues.
