POLITICS (2018-04-25)

This is History (895)

The secret of political bargaining is to look more strong than what you really are.







Only Advani can  lead ?

At a get-together a veteran remarked “If L K Advani raises a banner of revolt all the political parties  and  disgruntled BJP leaders will support him against the present leadership”.







Many leaders will come under one umbrella

Political scenario is changing fast. According to sources many opposition leaders like Mamta Banerjee, Mayawati, Akhilesh Yadav, Chandra Babu Naidu, Leaders from CPM, RJD, likely to join a Morcha of Yashwant Sinha. If this happens it will be tough for BJP.






Congress se bachchao

Impeachment move ho gaya flop!!!

But seems Congress in no mood to stop!


Jabh aur bezati likhi ho then how can they stop!

Now SC karre ga inn ka balloon pop!!


Then they'll Petition President to step in!!!

Sibal will continue to justify with his mischevious grin!


Congis in the know say Congress is in panic!!

RaGa is the cause of the manic!!


His stubbornness in the Impeachment matter!!

Ne kiya iss ki torn reputation ko aur tatter!!


Worry is he's unfit to lead Congress!!

Mummy ji is also in a lot of stress!!


As she sees her son go lower in Public's esteem!!!

She toh blames his team!!


One Lady from his Team tweeted a objectionable pic!!

Quickly she tweeted from some magazine kee thi info pick!


All top Lawyers have opined what Congress did was wrong!

Deserves criticism which is abs strong!!


One even felt VP's been mild in his rejection Note!!!

But chances of Congress learning a lesson are remote!


If by a miracle Congress comes to power!!

It'll be akin to Mosses karre flower!!


MMS ji is frail and now unfit for PM's Post!!

And we know RaGa's 'I am PM material' is an empty boast!


So could be they'll float a Turn Key Tender!!!!

And one who bids highest his or her services they'll render!


From 5 years of Satyug!

We'll be back into ghor Kalyug!!


Now the Maali takes care of the garden with love!

He's like a blessing from Above!


But what if the Maali makes the garden into a wasteland!

Bring back Congress and into this scenario we'll land!!


Sookhi hoee daal daal pe Dalal karre ge basera!

Aisa bann jaye ga Bharat Desh mera!!


RaGa's save Constitution has just brought back bad yaaden!

Jaise ki kya theh Indhira Madam ke iraadhe!!


After threatening CJI and Judiciary..questioning  PMO!

To doubting RBI and EC they did go!!


Joking official Stats and even questioning President!

And our Democracy too all to please 10 Janpath resident!


What all they have done is indeed very grave!!

And then this lot says Constitution ko karro save!!


Needed a White Book on all the wrongs Congress has done!!

Proverbially more than a tonne!!


Time to call Karnataka Poll!!

BJP is going to achieve its goal!!


Post Karnataka a passt Congress will start to totter!!

As electoral climate gets hotter!!


Openly Congis will express doubts on RaGa!!

When they ask where is he they'll be told Overseas bhaaga!


Confucius says... Congress is cursed not to cut its losses!!

That's because the 'losses are its Bosses'!!

Ministry of Finance to Think !

Govt. of India is running small saving schemes like PPF, SCSS, MIS etc in post offices and some schemes in Banks thru Ministry of Finance but there is no uniformity in operation of these schemes. Though different schemes have been opened with specific purpose and earns different rate of interest. Most of the Sr. citizens depend their livelihood from the interest of such schemes. They are old enough to go to post office and banks to draw even the interest. Govt. may bring at least some uniformity can be brought in their operation. For example PPF has facility for an extension of five years after the maturity and this can be done thrice where as SCSS has an option for an extension of three years after maturity only once. MIS of post office has no option of extension after maturity. One has to close the account and again fill up the application form for opening new MIS account. It is very difficult at the age of 75 or 80 years to close and open new account. Ministry of Finance can review the similar schemes and provide the option of extension of same scheme as per customer requirements whether two or three times of 3 years or 5 years. This also helps the Govt. to retain the money for longer period and utilise the money for their welfare schemes. Longer the period better for Govt. and also for the customer. Govt. to analyse and work out for some solution of extension in all schemes at least three times. This is only option. Customer may or may not opt for an extension of schemes. At least option should be available like PPF.



Plight of early PSU’ retirees

The request of Subramanian V to Govt is very genuine. As he mentioned about the non implementation of Pension Scheme by Maharatna Steel PSU is pathetic due to loss making. I request PM why maharani status has not been withdrawn. Also, there is an article in RSS mouth piece Organiser on April 11, 2013 that 25000 crore scam has been taken place. Govt should investigate the 70000 odd crore investment in SAIL units. The honest, sincere , qualified, dedicated executives are retired as AGM & DGM and some are taken VRS. The detailed project reports, the feasibility reports prepared by agencies should be investigated. The tender evaluation reports should be investigated. promotions, foreign tours, temporary transfers, falsified age affidavit holders(reduced age 4 to 6 years) has to be investigated.


Data with RTI (2018-04-25)

Information regarding the assets disclosed by officers

The Appellant sought information regarding the assets disclosed by officers and staff in a certain Income Tax office, copy of the proactive disclosure made under section 4 (1) (b) of the RTI Act in Telugu Language and The IT Act in Tamil language. The PIO informed that the Act had not been printed in Telugu Language. The CIC ruled that the information with respect to the assets and liabilities of an employee qualifies as personal information within the meaning of Section 8(1)(j) of the Act. The Commission advised the Respondent to consider publishing the aforesaid information in Telugu Language for the benefit of the Public at large.



Many judicial fora have ruled that the information with respect to the assets and liabilities of an employee, which he discloses to his employer in compliance of the Service Rules applicable to him qualifies as personal information within the meaning of Section 8(1)(j) of the Act and such information cannot be directed to be disclosed unless the PIO is satisfied that larger public interest justifies disclosure of such information.
