BJP to train its MPs on public speaking, ideology in a two day camp

New Delhi: To tell its lawmakers how to behave, the ruling party at the Centre -- Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) -- has planned a two-day training camp in the Balayogi Auditorium in New Delhi on August 3-4, 2019. Every member of Parliament of the BJP from both the houses will have to compulsory show up at the event to be addressed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with many other senior leaders.

The BJP leaders are of the view that this is an attempt of the saffron outfit to train and sensitise all its 381 members of Parliament on the issues related to parliamentary practice, debates, party ideology, public speech, handling media and even the internal issues of the party.

The meeting is important because of the fact that training session would give clarity to the BJP MPs on ideological issues which is important for the BJP. They will also be told not to speak out of turn and on such subjects that they are not well equipped with. The meeting will not only attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on both days but he is likely to speak at the event as well.

Sources in the BJP said that the meeting will also be addressed by speakers not only from the BJP but outside the party as well on specialized subjects. Besides the PM and Union Home minister Amit Shah, there is a possibility that party general secretary and in-charge of BJP training cell Muralidhar Rao might also address it. All the MPs have been asked to attend this meeting without a miss. Actually the BJP wants to pull string on some of motor mouths in the party by telling them how to speak saving the party from any unnecessary controversy and embarrassment due to some of its own leaders.

Sources further informed that this is a hectic meeting that would start at 9 am and would finish at 9 pm. MPs will get breakfast, lunch and dinner at the venue itself. Training cell of the BJP has major role to play in it as it is continuously doing the same but at smaller level. It will take up many issues including etiquette and how to deal with media which is a major concern of the party.

Sources are not ready to divulge any further detail about the programme but the purpose of the entire exercise is to ensure that certain basic things are required for a MP, minister and people having organizational responsibilities.

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) too keeps on doing such training camps for its workers but this would be the first such event when all BJP MPs will be participating in such a mega event that is dubbed as (Abhyas Varg).

360-model-of-empanelment:-no-big-deal

360 model of empanelment: No big deal

By IndianMandarins 28 Jul 2016

There is a general feeling in the higher echelons of NaMo administration that the newly-introduced outlandish concept of 360-degree evaluation for empanelment as Secretary, Additional Secretary and Joint Secretary may be not as effective as it was initially thought to be.

 

The feeling is fuelled by the fact that a whole lot of 'good and efficient' candidates has been left out of empanelment from senior postings. Take, for instance, the case of empanelment of only 29 IAS Officers of 1986 batch. This number is considered too low for AS empanelment and came as a bolt from the blue for many eligible aspirants. Naturally, it triggered a debate whether the first-time introduced system of 360-degree evaluation worked or failed.

 

Further, the debate was fuelled this week by empanelment of merely 31 officers as Secretary and 11 as Secretary Equivalent, as many senior officers found it incredible that many left-outs were considered for Secretary Empanelment at the cost of several better ones.

 

What is the big deal about the system of 360-degree evaluation?


Many senior-most officers posted in cadre states and centre as well say that there is no big deal, except the whims of some and cronyism that enabled four retired secretaries to be picked up and deployed to fish out all kind of information some of which could not be ruled out to be saucy and irrelevant on their unknown successor officers.

 

It is learnt that the committee members were given a set of six questions and limited and rigid framework of answers. It is pointed out that efficient and good governments are run on institutional mechanisms and not on subjective evaluations.

 

The problem with the 360-degree evaluation system is that it bypasses the institutional mechanisms like APRs, CVC & IB clearance and replaces them with the subjective evaluations -based on hearsay - of retired officials picked up without any institutional procedure to carry out evaluations of officers whom they have neither known nor worked with.

 

Further, since the 360-degree evaluation relies heavily on subjective judgments of peer groups and subordinates, it lends itself to be unduly influenced by feelings and gossips.

 

Therefore, the system has not only raised the eyebrows among all the officers across services, it has unavoidably put the junior batches (1984, 1985, 1986 and further junior batches) under a high level of insecurity and apprehensions about their future. As the process of critical assessment gets under way, it's becoming clear to one and all that the propounder of the 360-degree system has opened up a can of worms.

 

Take, for instance, the Secretary level empanelment of 1983 batch that took place on July 18, 2016. Altogether 42 officers were empanelled as Secretary (31 officers) and Secretary Equivalent (11 officers). It's generally believed that while this empanelment list has many competent, capable and credible officers, it has also ignored, if not discarded, a lot of capable and credible officers for no convincing reasons.

 

The ongoing criticism of the 360 system revolves around well-known principles of governance: transparency versus opacity; objectivity versus subjectivity; idealism versus pragmatism; utility versus futility; professionalism versus sycophancy, etc.

 

A retired senior IAS officer added "the intent of coining the 360-method certainly emanates from NaMo administration's conviction to make the system robust and responsible but don't you think that it will create avenues for a compromised breed of bureaucrats. The increasing insecurity for career prospects may compel them to keep compromising with the basic premise of civil service.
