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.

Bajrangi Bhaijaan

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.

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.

The Chief of Defence Staff ( CDS) is a critical position in modern era of hybrid warfare. Present post of CDS was created in India after due diligence and with the approval of Cabinet Committee on Security. Defence Secretary will continue to be the main "defence" advisor, whilst the CDS will assume the role of being the main "military" advisory, IN secretary rank acting as the single-point military advisor to the government and Prime Minister Let me come to the point.

A video showing one retired Major appealing to PM Modi, is going viral after kicking an unsavoury controversy involving the appointment of Chief of Defence Staff (CDS). To put it briefly, besides suggesting upgradation of the newly created post of Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) to the rank of a Cabinet minister , it also hints at de-bureaucratising the Ministry of Defence. The suggestion is simplistic and does not take into consideration the far-reaching implications. Illogical and motivated.

The CDS, as per MOD’s order, is to be treated at par with the chiefs of other three wings : Army,Air and Navy.All four will carry 4 stars ranks. Due diligence must have been applied by MOD. The CDS is supposed to be  first among equals. 

It now emerges that the CDS  will be given the status of Secretary heading the newly created Deptt of Military Affairs.

It will be wrong to assume that appointing the ex-Army chief Gen Rawat as CDS with 4 Stars, may not be effective as other three Chiefs may not give him the respect he should deserve. Armed forces work on unitary command. It is not clear under what circumstances the unsavoury controversy has suddenly erupted for no valid reason.

Nevertheless, the Government couldconsider assigning the new CDS 5 Stars rank after taking into consideration all the prosand cons especially the sensitivities of the matter. Late Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw was the first Indian Army officer to be promoted to the five-star rank. Reports have it that after the Indo-Pakistan War of 1971, Chief of the Air Staff, Air Chief Marshal P C Lal, had threatened to quit if the post of CDS was created.There were fears that such a post would be too powerful.Later in 2001 the government was on the brink of making the then Chief of the Naval Staff Admiral, Sushil  Kumar, the CDS.

However, due to turf wars, among other reasons, the idea was scrapped.

Even in the present case, the Chiefs of Air Force and Navy are opposed to the creation of  Joint theatre commands. Their concerns must be addressed.

The suggestion to give CDS the rank of a Cabinet minister seems motivated and ill-advised. Will the idea to bypass the Raksha Mantri (RM) not create chaos and confusion of the worstkind? Who will be responsible to the Parliament? The CDS or Raksha Mantri ?

The powers and responsibilities of all three Chiefs and the co-ordinative role of CDS must be spelt out clearly to avoid confusion and squablings among them .This is  very important.

It does not behove an ex-Army man to discredit the bureaucracy in such a sarcastic manner and trigger a war within the Armed forces.The video aims at dividing the Army and the bureaucracy.

Motive is mischievous. Indians would never like India to be reduced to the level of military dictatorship like Pakistan.

In Personality Cult, maintaining legitimacy of a political party is the function of its Leader. PM Modi is expected to fight enemies within and outside.Let him keep distance from party’s sychophants . Let him follow the advice of his detractors and above all, “the dictates of his conscience”.

Ironically,the personality cult worship created during the Nehruvian era ,continues unabated. PM Modi's obsession with opportunistic bureaucracy,islegendary. Pro- UPA bureaucrats still continue to flourish.

Come to the brasstacks. Plethora of bodies were created to perpetuate Nehru- Indira - Rajiv Gandhi dynasty.

Foundations,memorials,stadia,hospitals,universities,Airports named after Nehru-Gandhi-Rajiv Gandhi, are on govt records. Total Nos 445.

I had complained to PM Modi about this in 2015. Questions were asked in Parliament.No action was taken. On the contrary and much to my chagrin,instead of replacing names of Nehruvian dynasty, I noticed old cities were named after RSS-BJP icons.

Have a look at the other side of the coin. Aided by advisers, the Italian lady continues to preside over a virtual empire of trusts and committees. Brazenly,she heads a parallel government to discredit the existing ruling dispensation. This is simply not acceptable.

NGOs,Memorials,Centres and other innocuously worded Foundations are created to receive grant from foreign agencies.Some are headed by urban Naxals,who supply funds to the naxalites for carrying out heinous killings of tribal innocents and security forces.

JNU is very much in the news .How could Nehru give permission to JNU to receive foreign grants from the Commies.Several skeletons emerged.Now, the Kejriwal's NGO that allegedly received secret funds from the Ford Foundation, a conduit of CIA.

These must be scrapped.Enough intelligence materials exist supporting their malpractices. No background verification, is necessary. Their source of funding, fudging of accounts are known.Retired officers are being appointed as Consultants, scholars getting fat salaries,free 

foreign trips for "research" on themes to discredit India.

The Nehru foundation, Indira Gandh National Centre of Arts and Rajiv Gandhi Foundation were were usually reserved for official banquets in honour of visiting heads of state and other dignitaries during UPA era. Strangely, GOI Officers were permitted to join such fake private 

limited companies on deputation .One may recall cases of massive funds being forked out by MHRD to foot the air passage for scores of pseudo-intellectuals with 5-star comforts. All from public exchequer.

My unsolicited advice to PM Modi.

(a) Never ignore history. Learn lessons from it

(b) Be a Change Agent.You have the capacity to take decisions independently

(c)Treading the beaten path does not serve any purpose.

(d) Keep away from your sychophants in BJP/ RSS and even your colleagues in the council of ministers.

(e) Always take the advice of your detractors seriously.

(f) Remain guided by the" Dictates of your Conscience "

(g) Replace confrontations by wider consultations

(h) Never take credit for others' achievements

PM Modi is to lead the country through harder times ahead. He is first and the foremost the Prime minister of India, before being a politician of his party.

106 children died reportedly of septicaemia in Kota hospital in 4 days.

CM,Rajsthan must commit suicide if he has an iota of remorse Minister-in-charge must own the responsibility.

He must either be sacked straightaway,or asked to submit his papers.

CMO, hospital administrative staff must be suspended and inquiry completed within 48 hours.

Who allowed the pigs, monkeys and wild rats to have a free run within hospital precincts and even inside hospital rooms.

Such lapses are not uncommon in BIMARU states.
