Selections  are made by DOP&T based on  subjective  assessments in  ACRs /APARs.No background  check is ever made through IB even in case of key appointments.This should be  made a mandatory requirement. I know of an ex-Secretary who was appointed as Member (Admn) to the Principal Bench CAT Delhi after retirement despite  serious strictures passed  against him by same Tribunal, while in service. The  practice of CVOs reporting to CMDs in PSUs ,is a charade. They, more often than not ,toe CMDs' line.Some CVOs insist on attending Boards' meetings  so that they could enjoy all perks admissible to  Functional Directors.The CVC is also not a holy cow in absence of accountability.

The Indian economy relies heavily on  Corporate sector. Ironically,the number of financial scams is also rising  now, faster than ever. The Sahara and Saradha scams represent the antithesis of all business ethics. Gullible investors could not have been fooled without  the politico- bureaucratic nexus .

Gullible investors could not have been fooled without politico- bureaucratic nexus UPA era. A former SEBI member KM Abraham complained to  to Dr. Manmohan Singh, Prime Minister of India, accusing the Finance Ministry for inaction.  He claimed that then-FM Pranab Mukherjee and his advisor, Omita Paul,tried to force SEBI Chairman UK Sinha to "manage" high profile cases, The charge, denied by the accused, was not pursued. U K Sinha was rewarded with SEBI chairmanship for extending huge loan to the Kingfisher as head of bankers' consortium-, both from psu and private sectors.

The  umbilical cord  between politicians and  bureaucrats, was never cut. This led to their criminal bonding. Both are complementary and supplementary to each other. The States' bureaucracy from the top  down to Patwari, is spineless or with backbone, meticulously broken. Both enjoy a symbiotic relationship,mutually admiring and dependent. Inputs  from investigative and intelligence agencies will expose the nexus between politicians and politicized bureaucrats,who are readily available to be misused and abused.They indulge in all sorts of shenanigans to please political masters for getting plum postings and accelerated promotions. Post retirement-they are rewarded with powerful  assignments- Governorship, Ambassadorships,MPs, Advisors, Consultants  etc.They earn the sobriquet of "Field Marshals",who serve even after retirement. Sycophency is key to success. The problem was rampant during UPA and brazenly continues even now . Not all bureaucrats are bad. The honourable exceptions  are respected after retirement for their honesty,integrity and non-pliability, while in service.

The views expressed by  Rajya Sabha MPs on April 27, are praise worthy. However,their suggestion to extend  the MPLAD scheme to cover  Nepal, is neither practicable nor legally tenable.Don't forget that MPLADS  is a permanent mechanism for development within the country.   It would be appropriate to  subsume  the  MPLADS funds under India's  disaster management plan or PM's Relief Fund.The sense of the House must,however, be conveyed to  Nepalese Parliament. Let all MPs contribute.

The Civil Services are becoming increasingly ineffectual. Reasons are not far to seek. When we talk of time-scale promotions, reservation in promotions  in organised services, we want to say : Merit equals Stupidity.

PM Modi connecting with the indian diaspora on foreign soil, is apreciated.But, issues like communal harmony, farmers' grievances,turbulent Kashmir are crying for attention, at home.Modi sarkar  is also going slow on UPA's serial scams and black money repatriation.Building smart cities with wi fi facilities and bullet trains, is far less important than alleviating poor man's sufferings. He wants two square meals a day.Wonky prioritisation would lead to lopsided development.

Nehru snooped on Netaji even after independence. But,why ?

Why are Netaji's Papers not de-classified even now ?

The Nation wants to honour him with the truth.

Why did Nehru- Gandhi dynasty block de-mystification of Netaji's disappearance ?

Was Nehru scared of annoying the erstwhile Soviet Union,even after disintegration? 

Was Netaji arrested and detained in Siberia at the behest of the Britishers before being tortured t The fact remains that India got independence by virtue of Netaji's contribution. Nehru lost no opportunity in grabbing power with Gandhi's help.The mutiny in British-Indian army and Navy on the basis of clarion call by Netaji forced the Britishers leave India despite the failure of Quit India movement .o death ?

Our history needs to be re-written in correct perspective to replace the untruth spread by the left-leaning historians assisted by the Soviet Union,now Russia.
