Last person in line

I'm at my favourite Cafe for my morning Coffee fix... seated at the adjacent table is a Lady...after I settle down she starts a conversation with me.

 

Lady: So RaGa has written to PM on the Women's Quota

 

 Bill... I just wonder his Mom ran the Government for 10 years.... she being a woman did not get this Bill passed... as an MP did he write to his Mom then...

Me: RaGa's letter.....Ladies, beware of Greeks who come laden with gifts...Democracies that have achieved empowerment of Women has been done by Policy Initiatives and not by Legistlation and Quotas...

L: Very much like Modi is doing....from Girl Child to Women so many steps....

M: Does Congress Party reserve 33% Election Tickets for women..

L: Demand 33% reservation in a Democracy (India) and where it can enforce 33% in an Autocracy  ( Congress) it doesn't do so...

M: Speaking of Democracy.... a survey was done and max Indians are satisfied with India's Democracy... next come Germany and then Canada..

L: There's an Actor who has said ... if you speak up against Government here you  could be murdered...

M: Anything happened to....Kejriwal.... Durbaaris ....just to name a few who do it all the time...

F: Hear RaGa is going to Europe next  month on a 4 day visit.... they say he will be  meeting Angella Merkel...

M:  Good ...let her also come to know first hand his shortcomings to be India's PM...Milind Deora and someone versant with Diplomacy will be chapeneoring him...

L: I'm sure Merkel kind of Leaders get inputs.... doesn't Merkel know about  RaGa...

M: Why should  she deny herself the fun....

L: Its hilarious..... Sanghis ... Rightists....are trying to abolish Triple Talaq... Halala...Genital mutilation....and Liberal Women are speaking up for these practices...all because Sanghis are against these practices...

M: A Urdu  Daily has reported  that RaGa while meeting Muslim intellectuals said that Congress is a Muslim Party...

L: Durbaaris....and some Congis are questioning the reporting.... trying to link the Urdu Paper to BJP.... but Congress is not denying what RaGa reportedly said...

M: And the beauty is its not done anything substantial for Muslims ....

F: Kept them befuddled and huddled....

L: RaGa's latest tweet...' I stand in line with the last person in line..... with those exploited because of religion and caste... he ends by saying I am Congress'...

M: 'I got 10000 Sikhs butchered.... During my Rule scores of riots.... I believe in caste and religion Politics.... I am Congress'...and as for standing in line with the last person in line...post Demo when he went to withdraw money he breezed past those standing in line...

 

Lady gives me a thumbs-up...bid Adieu... pay my tab and move out..

DEBATE

Power hungry bureaucrats

The IAS from MP cadre who voiced that there are several bureaucrats who serve the politicians for their selfish needs is absolutely true. This has been happening since decades without a sign of it being stopped. Their education means nothing and they become shameless during their service so much that they stoop to any level to please their political masters. In Maharashtra, there are many such officers who have been rewarded with post retirement postings which ultimately costs the exchequer. Shameless people.

Interference unwarranted

Interference by DM is unwarranted. It is not in the spirit of the Apex Court judgement which prescribes internal autonomy to the police.

Rita Teotia is ideal person

Ms Rita Teotia is the ideal candidate. She is the chosen Commerce Secretary. Any IAS officer of Gujarat cadre would be able to handle CCI effectively.

Data with RTI

Disclosure of beneficiaries of the Anganwadi centres

The appellant sought the names of all beneficiaries including pregnant and lactating women at Anganwadi Centre situated at a particular village but did not get any response from the public authority. The CIC directed the PIO of Ministry of WCD to issue necessary guidelines for voluntary disclosures as per the mandate under Section 4 of RTI Act for the guidance of all Child Development Project Officers, ICDS Project to provide complete information voluntarily on their websites, which would eventually benefit the appellant also. The CIC directed that all CDPOs of ICDS project all over the country to voluntarily publish the month-wise expenditure incurred for functioning and maintenance of Anganwadi centres, names of the beneficiaries, details of benefits regularly on their website and display the printed copies conspicuously on notice board.

 

Comments

Though the State Governments directly monitor and supervise the functioning of Anganwadi centres, this massive programme receives around 50% of the funds (Rs. 16,000 crores approximately) from the Central Government. Section 4(1)(b) of RTI Act, clause (xii) mandates voluntary disclosure of the manner of execution of subsidy programs, including the amounts allocated and the details of beneficiaries of such programs; and under clause (xiii) the particulars of recipients of concessions, permits or authorizations granted by it. Therefore, it is the mandatory duty of the every public authority to disclose complete details of money spent on subsidy program like that of the ICDS on Anganwadies including the details of each individual beneficiary of this program.
