Democracy ditched...

Still in Shimla.....today I meet my Respected  Friend.... retired senior Bureaucrat..at a Cafe with a spectacular view... over soups... rolls and salads we get chatting.

Me: So BJP could not muster the numbers..

Respected  Friend:  One thing I can assure you... if Amit Shah had done 10% of what all was being alleged... half of JD (S) MLAs and a quarter of Congress MLAs would have been on BJP's side...

M: Yes .....now all of a sudden..... EVMs are okay... EC and Judiciary are independent..... those who said Modi got only 33% of vote in 2014... are now okay with a Party that lost 184 out of 222 seats..... 147 of its candidates lost their deposits....

RF: Governer too went by the text book.... gave the Largest Party an opportunity  to prove majority....gave 15 days for this ....being a Politician he realised the need for MLAs to go to their Consituents and get their opinions on future action......Judges wouldn't realise this ..even on the Pro-tem Speaker his choice was right...

M: Sir checked out...there is precedence ..... a Guv gave a Congress  CM one month to  prove his majority... and in all fairness Karnataka Guv has given Kumarswamy also 15 days to prove his majority...

RF: Mazaa aa jaye... if now Amit Shah really does what all he's been accused of doing and JD (S) and Congress lose vote of confidence.... after all its just a wafer thin majority.....

M: And see the language being used by Congis... and just imagine  MMS had the  gall to write to President about Modi' s language...

RF: Congis equated Gujarat Guv to a Dog.... called Army Chief Sadak ka gunda.... called Modi Neech Aadmi .... and who says Congress respect Institutions.... CJI they've tried to impeach... EC they've accused of being pro BJP.. attacked Army Chief... CBI they accuse of being a BJP tool.. previously they attacked CAG too.....

M: And Karnataka is in no way a victory... Kannadigas did not vote for a Congress or JD (S) Government..... the Vote was pro BJP....so now how the hell has Democracy been restored...

RF: Just thinking aloud

..before the Congress MLA's were 'jailed' in the Eagleton Golf Resort a Channel reported two Cash Vans ..or what nowadays are called ATM Vans as these replenish ATM machines... went into the Resort.... with what.....why!!!

M: And Congress trying to credit RaGa..... bachchaa bachchaa jaantha hai it was Sonia who was doing the direction with her trusted advisors behind the scene... in fact RaGa had gone into a sulk.....

RF: The section of Media called the Darbaari Media  must be having a whale of a time..

M: Yup... portraying it as if Congress has won... its actually two failures have clubbed their marks and passed.... happens only in politics... they are crying for Karnataka Guv's head....Guv has done nothing wrong.... yes ....his decisions did not suit Congress...... so the Darbaaris are on his case...

RF: Sher ka bachchaa grabbed power like a geedadh....

M: News about the IBC solving the Bushan Steel NPA has been overshadowed by Karnataka election..

RF: If you go into the nitty gritty you realize  what a fantastic achievement this is..

M: And there are more in the pipeline...

RF: So my friend in the end....Karnataka election ..... Gowdas got the Throne and allegedly I'm sure a lot of money... the 2 ATM Vans were not carrying supplies... BJP has earned a lot of goodwill... Congress  ...lost goodwill...its double standards and wolf calls revealed.....lost

money....no direct power...from National Party its a Notional Party....

M: But money they'll recoup I'm  sure...

RF: Not if this Governmemt falls under its own contradictions within 4 months.....

We shake our heads in agreement ...pay the tab... and move out....

“The Great Top Bureaucracy of India : Self Before Country”

NN Vohra, the present Governor J&K, is the direct beneficiary of "loss" of his report on politico-bureaucratic-police-business having terror links.

Longest serving bureaucrat post-retirement, euphemistically called the " Field Marshal of bureaucracy " who had headed the committee as union home secy with inputs from CBI, IB, RAW.

Annexures, containing names of influential politicos, bureaucrats and their secret terror links, are more important than the main text carrying explosive details. Leakage of sensational details will destabilise all political parties across the board.

Criminalisation of politics and the nexus among criminals, bureaucrats and politicians. Their roles in Mumbai serial blasts of March 1993 and links with Dawood Ibrahim is proved beyond doubt.

Now, even, Nawaz Sharif ex-PM Pakistan has woken up from deep slumber to spill the beans about Pakistan ISI’s total involvement in Mumbai blasts. India did not need a certificate from him who maintained total silence all these 25 years.

For fear of getting caught, no attempt was made by successive political dispensations either to retrieve the " lost" report or hang those responsible for its safe custody. The infamously called Vohra committee report was submitted to the then political dispensation in October 1993 in the wake of March 12,1993 Mumbai serial blasts.

All former Cabinet Secretaries, Principal Secretaries to PM, Union Home Secretaries, Senior officers posted in MHA’s internal security wing must be privy to details. All acted at the behest of their political masters and were richly rewarded with political sinecures, Constitutional appointments, tribunals etc.

CVC should be pro-active

When information about corruption is received under the RTI Atc, we forward it to the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) for taking necessary action. The most funniest part is that CVC considers the information as anonymous. They forward it to the concerned Ministries/Departments for taking appropriate action. CVC also writes to the person who has obtained RTI information to verify his/her identity. When something is in black & white, the CVC should become pro-active and not treat the information received under the RTI Act callously.


Data with RTI

Penalty for delay in transfer of application

The PIO did not provided reply timely leading to issue of the show cause notice why maximum penalty should not be imposed against him for not furnishing the information within prescribed timelines. After going through the explanation of the PIO, the CIC noted that the RTI application was transferred after 16 days delay excluding the five days mandate as specified under the RTI Act. The CIC noted that information was provided by PIO after 67 days from the date of receiving the RTI application. The CIC imposed a penalty of Rs. 16,750/- on the PIO and directed to recover the amount from the salary payable to the PIO.
