CM Kejriwal orders"Sundarkaand path” to be organised by Delhi’s law makers every Tuesday, ostensibly to please Bajrangbali. But, secret motive is just the opposite: Capture hindu votes.The neo-Bhakti movement is to be funded out of public exchequer of NCT Delhi.

Not to lag behind, CM UP earmarks Rs 200 crores in UP's next year's budget for building Ram temple in Ayodhya.

With the Forty-second Amendment of the Constitution of India enacted in 1976, the Preamble to the Constitution makes India a secular Republic.

Against this background, what happens to secular credentials of both ruling dispensations?

Monumental electoral frauds. Hypocrisy galore.

The C&AG, as custodian of public expenditure , remains the mute witness,as always, forgetting its Constitutional obligations.

 The year 2020 is going to be quite hectic for India.The ruling party is organizing rallies for trumpeting achievements to woo voters of impending assemblies’ elections. Mega rally at Ramlila ground Delhi on Dec 22 last year was totally unwarranted  in the midst of NRC- CAA related violence .The capital was under siege. Report on security threat to PM seemed fabricated . How was he having a free run violating  security protocol.

No one is impressed by the political drama. Massive  logistic support by deploying govt machinaries. Election Commission and C&AG are clueless about misuse of public funds . Huge information gag has developed as political parties  have been kept outside the purview of RTI Act.All political parties are unanimous on the exemption.

The ministerial Executive is marginalized, silenced by providing undeserved privileges.  All sign on dotted lines and keep their mouths shut.

Bureaucracy is growing increasingly pliant,malleable, more focussed on  prized postings rather than addressing  public grievances. Crisis of credibility afflicts the Media. Providing Good governance remains a pipe dream. Services delivery and accountability  mechanisms have failed. Corruption growing exponentially in local bodies and subordinate judiciary. Nothing moves without  illegal gratification.The local municipal bodies have grown totally inaccessible and unresponsive.MHA should stop pretending about its ignorance.

Total chaos and confusion. CM, West Bengal  demands UN- monitored referendum on CAA and NRC. All opposition-ruled States towing the same line.

Excessive digital visibility of PM Modi breeds contempt. We need vigorous appraisal of self-performance. Man ki baat, ( a monologue ) is getting boring, merely badgering the citizens. We need more dialogue, more consultation with public to avoid getting out-of-touch . BJP is sending its “ MLAs and MPs” for fostering  public awareness on CAA and NRC.They should worry  more about nursing their constituencies and solve people’s problems.PM should not consider himself infallible.

Time for ‘ Chintan and Manthan ‘ for the ruling political dispensation to analyse how the situation  has grown so antagonistic over the years? This is the wake-up call for the ruling coalition at the centre. Arrogance of the political class is bad; its over-confidence is a curse.

PM, at long last, has decided to quit Social Media accounts from the Youtube, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. 

A Non-news unduly hyped by the Media.

But, the initiative was long overdue in national interest.

Enough time was wasted with no concrete benefits to the country.

Sagging popularity rating of PM Modi was proved in the recent assemblies polls

Let the matter not rest here. Much more is expected from PM Modi.

People sincerely wish,he stops visiting temples and inaugural ceremonies wasting crores of rupees out of tax-payers money.

The practice of laying Foundation stones ceremonies must be scrapped.Sheer waste of time, scarce resources and manpower.

PM Modi has achieved great heights. He does not require more publicity. No TV crews .

People are getting bored.Excessive visibility and familiarity breeds contempt.And,this has started happening.

Let him lead the country by examples,not rhetorics.

He must keep his chatukaars at an arm's length.

The Congress must also learn to keep shut up and put up.

We do not pay taxes for providing security covers and unwarranted privileges to the dynastic dumbwits .

PM Modi must spend more time in the national capital and focus on providing Good governance and ensure effective service delivery mechanism.

Total implementation paralysis.Total lack of supervision.

Enough is enough.Public is getting restless, alienated and disillusioned.They have grown wiser with experience.

Time for political rhetorics is over.

Country wants PM Modi to take steps for countering joint threats from China-Pakistan. He,alone has the grit and risk-taking capacity to take over POK. No one else.

It will be foolhardy to expect Pakistan

Shaheen Bagh is not leaderless.It is not a movement,but a conspiracy.The old grannies did not receive an " ilhaam " to squat and block public space 24x7.

Riots in N-E Delhi did not happen suddenly on the spur of the moment and under an impulse. Instead, these were part of a grand strategy jointly crafted by the congis, the commies, the aaptards and others. All played into the hands of anti-nationals.

Now,the congress supremo is preaching ‘ Raj Dharma’ from the high pedestal. Shameful.

Conspiracy was hatched in advance with Pakistan's complicity. Massive preparations must have gone into the making of acid bombs, petrol bombs,mobilising stones on terraces. It must have taken weeks , even months

Was there intelligence failure,one wonders?

Delhi Police was ordered to behave like clueless nincompoops. Inert,inactive and speechless.

BJP goons went berserk. FIRs were not registered against the loose cannons.Their jingoistic utterances added fuel to fire.Headless chickens. Top leaders were busy with Donald Trump.

“Kaum ke ranj mei, dinner khaatey hain hukkaam ke saath, Ranj leader koh bahut hai magar aaraam ke saath” (Akbar Allahabadi)

A Delhi HC judge who " dared " to question Delhi police for failing to file FIRs, was transferred at late hours. Ill-advised,motivated.

Orders, as per media reports , were issued by Deptt of Justice (MHA) on Feb 12, 2020 after the approval of Supreme court collegium. If implementation of order could be delayed by over one week, it could as well be delayed by few hours till completion of hearing, the next day.This raises suspicion in public mind.

All things considered, the nightmare was a joint venture of all political parties.How brazen?

Hamaam mei sab...?

Some ex-babus have an insatiable appetite for power.They know exactly which string to pull and remain in power. Such blue bloods in bureaucratic parlance are known as Field Marshals. So apt.

Nripendra Mishra is one such specimen. He manipulated his upward mobility post retirement. Courtesy : proximity to the power that be.

Please recall how PM Modi  against severe opposition , had to seek Parliamentary sanction to amend the then prevailing laws in order to rehabilitate Mr Mishra  as his Principal Secretary in the PMO. He was later accorded the status of a Cabinet minister.

Then,one day,he was suddenly asked to pack off. God knows, under what circumstances? Media did not care to investigate. Nripendra Mishra then managed his comeback. He  was  rehabilitated as CEO of Nehru museum council a few days back, replacing M J Akbar.

Another shock.In his latest move, PM Modi’s trusted former IAS officer, will now head the "Ram temple construction panel”. The silent majority of  more competent  retired  bureaucrats and professional engineers of proven integrity was totally ignored. All feel  utterly 

slighted and amazed at such blatant  misuse of discretionary powers. PMO’s control on Ram temple in a secular country. Modi hai toh Mumkin hai.

Lesson : Pliability to political class and  secret backing  of  an extra-Constitution body ( One can imagine,who ) are quintessential  requirements for out-of-turn placements of  bureaucrats both while  in- service and post retirement. Merit has tertiary or no  importance.

PM Modi has definitely undergone a transformation.He is under the influence of  coterie of bureaucrats , out-of-sync with ground reality.He is Prime minister of India, not BJP and RSS.

Redevelopment of Central Sectt complex and Central Vista would mean demolition of Parliament House and other prestigeous office buildings including Udyog,Krishi,Nirman , Shastri Bhawans and various ancillary structures Lutyens Zone — an integral part of the history of  New Delhi.

In October 2019, CPWD awarded the project to a Gujarat-based company HCP Designs.

The same company had revamped Kashi Vishwanath corridor in Varanasi and the new BJP headquarters in Rouse Avenue Delhi.

All of us have grown watching these elegant buildings

Now, there will be a single triangular composite building to accommodate all ministries.

Security will be compromised by locating all ministries in a single building.  A separate Parliament house will be constructed. Work will start in May 2020 and completed in 2024.

The new structures will rob the area of much of its heritage importance. Public was not consulted despite being the largest stake-holders.Sheer waste of public resources that could be diverted to strengthen existing infrastructures.

There will be utter chaos ,dislocation during the three years period of construction roads, clogging with traffic congestions.

PM Modi is hell-bent on undertaking the project,come what may.

An instance  of Rajhath,the Royal Obstinacy.The One-man show.

Supreme court's in its Feb 7 Landmark judgement slammed the State government against misuse of Reservation policy.Its operative portion is re-produced below :

 x x x x x

" The State government ( Uttara Khand) is not bound to provide reservation for appointments and promotions to public posts and that an individual does not have a fundamental right to claim such quotas "

 x x x x x

In the light of the above SC 's verdict , the Centre must scrap Reservation policy in its present form across the board.This is an politico-electoral fraud to promote vote bank politics. Indian citizens dream for a casteless,classless society.The existing discriminatory policy violates 

Right to Equality, enshrined in the Constititution of India.

Reservation policy is not provided by the Constitution. Its duration is being continued after every ten years. Successive political Executives ,for fear of losing Vote banks, have been extending the tenure of such despicable practice decennially. Obnoxious practice that promotes 

mediocrity. Merit becomes the casualty.

Following course is suggested :-

(a) Restrict benefits to only one generation of all communities ;

(b) Let us extend the benefits to one generation alone of all communities ie  SC,ST ,OBC, and those with bench-marked Disablity;

(c) Failing (a) and (b) , orders must be taken to disenfranchise all those who continue to receive reservation benefits in violation of above rules and by suppressing the facts

If India wants to become a superpower, annihilate castes distinctions and stopping  doles of reservation benefits.

PM Modi must support meritorious bureaucracy or meritocracy in the national interests.

Let us recall Singapore's late founder Lee Kuan Yew ( 1923 – 2015) sharp tirade against India's Reservation policy responsible for slowing down its economy. He advised against the regular misuse of the policy by India. He was the first Prime Minister who transformed Singapore 

from a small port city into a wealthy global hub.

The Law makers and the ruling political Executive are urged to be circumspect before  embarking  upon filing an SLP in the Apex court or even taking recourse to Legislative route to supersede SC’s vedict.

Enough is enough. The on-going protestations may snowball into a revolution to teach the politicians a lesson.This is the ground reality.
