Cloaked Threat

6 POK Terror Camps attacked!!

A telling punch our Howitzers packed!!

And as usual Congress started it's spins...why prior to elections..... where's the proof. Well it's  a tactical move... Pak feels when Elections are held in India.... India lets it's gaurd down... and so they either order a terror attack and also try to push in their terrorists into India around  election time in India... India did a reverse swing.... as ISI prepared to do both or either...India attacked POK Terror  Camps with its powerful Howitzers.... Pak didn't expect India to attack at election time!! And outfall is a kind of bonus for BJP..... voter gets enthused to vote for a Party that takes Pak head on... what's the harm in electoral brownie points!!

In both States as Congress stares at defeat!!

EVMs pe chaati Durbaris have started to beat!

Same old ronna dhonna on EVMs.. same fixed videos ...you press any button and vote  goes to BJP...via ingenious morphing and editing! Again post the results as RaGa is leading Congress's campaign and naturally he'll be blamed for losses.... so Durbaari lot have started posting  morphed Vidoes on SM.....soon they will submit Memorandums to EC petitioning EC to revert  to Balloting ....objective....Congress lost because of EVMs... RaGa should not be blamed!! And in all probability within a week or so of results RaGa will fly overseas!!

With hindsight!!

One must also have foresight!!

Sadly our Muslim Brothers lacked  both when it came to Babri Masjid!!! Though in their hearts they may know that Babri stands on a Mandir but they didn't  accept this.... had they foreseen an India without Congress at the helm .... do you think they'd have taken the magnanimity route... and handed over the Babri to  Hindus ...and in the Ganga Jamuna Tehzeeb ...which they keep citing now... offered to help in building of the Mandir.... some say thry would have.....personally I feel they wouldn't !! All that BJP has done is removed the legal ..... procedural... impediments created to delay verdict in the Title Suit!! Another 'limbo' verdict is not expected....but the other side is not giving  up... a very revealing petition to SC...keep future of Nation in mind....  threat is evident... keep in limbo or be prepared for Jihaad!!

Atlas shrugged

"Why can't IAS officers stand upto the politician ?" I forget how many times this question has been put to me, mostly by journalists, but also by businessmen/women, venerable judges, friends and scientists.

I for one have never spare a single opportunity to point out ills of our systems whenever I encounter one. In fact, i have recorded my views in my two books, if anyone cares to read them. Whenever I do so, if the issue is important enough, I request my journalist friends to carry my views in their newspapers ( I do not know anyone in the TV world - not that any sensible person watches tv news anymore. ). My request is never honoured. One senior journalist was frank enough to tell me the reason - the management/editor will not approve your views to be printed in the paper. Why they not stand upto their editors? I write only facts and the truth. As I have narrated earlier, during one election i found a very senior journalist covering election meetings in a car provided by the Chief Minister. Then you expect him to stand up to that Chief Minister? In the same magazine, a journalist had written about some hanky-panky by a controversial but influential officer. He got a message from the editor to not repeat that mistake. Shortly he was eased out. I have met only one Rambo journalist, namely Arun Shourie. We all know about how he stood upto Indira Gandhi during the emergency and what work he did in the Bofor's case, just to name a few. As my minister in disinvestment also i have seen him stand upto to his corrupt colleagues. I find no other example.

During my disinvestment days i saw the business world from very close quarters. Few cases will elaborate. One very young bright lawyer came with his boss ( Top 5 law firms ) for a discussion. I knew this boy to be of integrity. The boss tried to bullshit me with some wrong legal advise. I thought the junior would atleast point out that what i was saying was correct. He kept mum, though he appeared uneasy. Of course, i rejected his bosses suggestion. Meeting over, they left. Later, the boy comes to me and says " Sir, you were absolutely right but i cannot contradict my boss.". Why he could not stand upto his boss? When we were selling balance shares of a very big company, the CA firm was trying to hoodwink government by giving a low share price. I told him that this won't do. He says " Sir what to do? My partner says that the private partner has asked us not to cross a certain price. I told him " If the private partner is angry he would not give you future business but if i catch you acting smart government will give you a room in Tihar. Now you chose.". Worked. Always does. Why couldn't this mighty CA firm stand upto one businessman ?

Scientists. As Agriculture Secretary i have seen a DG, ICAR who used to succumb to every wrong request of some netas. Every other scientist kept silent. Those scientists who stood up, like Dr Swapan Dutta, a renowned geneticist, suffered. Even after he was recommended for a very important position by the highest authorities, he was denied the job.

About judges, whatever i say may be construed as contempt. Therefore, I'll only mention the 4-1 verdict in the ADM Jabalpur case and the reasons and fallout of it.

And then there is other thing about diluting the service by allowing entry at advanced ages. By the time they come into the IAS, they have served in one or more places and become "worldly wise". Their number would be around 10 %. So this sizeable chunk is available to the leader to fill up all the key positions. The balance 90 % are at the periphery of governance and hence no opportunity of conflict ever arises. Public does not see them ever.

So, we have one Arun Shourie, one Swapan Dutta. But we have Seshan, Lyngdoh, Sunder, EAS Sarma, Abhash Chatterjee, M N Buch, S V Bhave, V S Dubey, D Bandopadhya, S Ramasubramanium, R K Nair, V K Shunglu and hordes of others who stood upto politicians, and the younger generation of IAS officers, who are still doing so. It is impossible for 5000 IAS officers to carry the burden of all others. We are not descendents of Atlas. Unless everybody stands up to wrong doing this nation cannot be numero uno. And if even with an honest and patriotic Prime Minister we can't do it, then God help us all !

DATE WITH RTI

Action taken report on a complaint

The appellant had filed a complaint vide letter dated 09.06.2017 addressed to Hon’ble HRD Minister and sought an action taken report in regard to above said letter under RTI Act. The PIO, MHRD submitted that the said complaint dated 09.06.2017 was forwarded to UGC vide letter no. F.No.5-4/2017-U.II dated 30.06.2017 and the appellant was informed accordingly on 10.01.2018. The PIO, UGC submitted that an appropriate reply was given vide letter dated 09.02.2018 stating that the said complaint dated 09.06.2017 was not received by them. The appellant submitted that he did not receive any relevant information from the PIO. The CIC observed that both the PIOs, UGC and MHRD, have handled the RTI application very poorly. Both the PIOs are required to provide information as per the availability of record. Hence, the CPIO MHRD should provide complete notings in respect of the processing of the complaint dated 09.06.2017. Moreover, the CPIO UGC should also re- examine the records and provide the present status of the complaint dated 09.06.2017. In case no action was taken a categorical reply should be provided.

Comments

If an appellant seeks the action taken report under the RTI Act in respect of the complaint filed by him, the same should be provided in the form of file notings or correspondence made. The inspection of the respective file should be provided rather than sleeping over the letter.
