Modi-Shah duo leaves mainstream media aghast yet again!

The Modi-Shah duo has yet again foxed not only its opponents but also the mainstream media whose lifeline is reporting political events. People wake up to read that the Maharashtra government may be formed anytime after November 24 with Shiv Sena chief Udhdhav Thackrey to lead the government as chief minister for full five year term but even before tea was served to many an old proverb proved to be correct that there is many a slip between the cup and the lip.

Indian mass media thrive on the very dictum of eat politics, drink politics and sleep politics but it miserably failed to foresee the most crucial political development of the country despite 60-70 per cent content offered in any mainstream media being political in nature. They even failed to make out of 45-minutes long meeting between the PM and NCP chief Sharad Pawar when the media witnessed many surprises of the BJP in the past.

It is understood that media failed to get any inkling about abrogation of Article 370, surgical strike and Balakote attack and even the nomination of President but it was really amusing that the formation of Maharashtra government broke just before the swearing in of Devendra Fadnavis which is an out and out political development. The PM tweeted a congratulatory message at 8.14 AM to Maharashtra CM and deputy putting the curtain down on over a fortnight long drama leaving everyone dumbstruck.

Do appointments of LGs give any clue to NaMo’s future strategy?

The NaMo Govt is known for its penchant for civil servants but it has its own way to deploy, employ and engage them to accomplish its task and corner the opposition on issues like demonetisation, GST and abrogation of Article 370.

In June 2018 none could understand the objective as why B V R Subrahmanyam (IAS:1987:CG) was borrowed from Chhattisgarh as J&K Chief Secretary. In fact, Subrahmanyam was brought to J&K to take commands from NaMo administration and hold sway over their execution. A year later (May 31, 2019), the entire system remained clueless and failed to explain NaMo administration’s certain bureaucratic and political decisions which include S Jaishanker’s induction as Foreign Minister, Cabinet rank to NSA Ajit Doval and 03 months extension to the then Cabinet Secretary P K Sinha putting the then Home Secretary Rajiv Gauba on wait to replace Sinha. It was only after the abrupt abrogation of Article 370 and 35A that had unfolded the mystery. The top officials, mentioned above, proved as key to the flawless execution of NaMo-Shah’s plan for J&K. 

Even though much is being said and written about appointment of former Defence Secretary R K Mathur and NaMo-Shah loyalist and expenditure Secretary G C Murmu as LGs of Ladakh and J&K and respectively. It requires out of box thinking to gauge NaMo administration’s move. Again it is not a mere coincidence that PM Modi on Monday expressed his aspirations for integrating PoK with India. None knows if it is the very context NaMo often refers as New India?

Further, it was also not a sheer coincidence that NaMo administration picked former IB Chief Dineshwar Sharma as the Administrator of Lakshadweep which is increasingly exposed to Chinese strategic moves to encircle India and its intensifying strategic partnership with Shri Lanka.

If one goes by the credentials and experience of these newly appointed LGs and Administrator, one might be able to gauge the future perspective of NaMo Administration for New India. NaMo administration needed the one who could religiously implement its rehabilitation plans and development roadmap in Jammu & Kashmir and the one who could shoulder the strategic needs of Ladakh which shares borders with Pak, PoK and China.

Kashmir Call: Kalsi sent to Kashmir as SP ACB

By IndianMandarins 30 Sep 2019

As Indianmandarins had already reported that a new team of bureaucrats are being selected for Jammu & Kashmir and Laddakh to be posted there. In one such first move since Parliament abrogated Article 370 in the state and bifurcated it into two Union Territories, Union Ministry for Home Affairs has appointed Sagar Singh Kalsi (IPS:2010:AGMUT) as Superintendent of Police in the Valley’s Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB). The Union Territories of J&K and Ladhak will come into existence on October 31.

Modi’s mission and Shah’s action earn brand equity

By IndianMandarins 07 Sep 2019

After the abrogation of Article 370 & 35A, J&K is returning to normalcy. Connectivity is retrieved and restrictions are lifted. The Govt has claimed that not a single casualty has taken place over a period of 30 days.

 

The flawless execution of ‘Mission Kashmir’ has apparently become the brand equity of Union Home Minister Amit Shah -- the most trusted lieutenant of the PM Modi. The government sorted out several tough tasks be it demonetisation, triple talaq, surgical strike and smashing the special status of Kashmir.

 

Amid oppositions from within and outside, Modi-Shah has not only nullified its attack but alienated Pakistan with its exhaustive home work before executing its plan. They did not allow the matter to get leaked to anyone at the home front.

 

There has been a general practice that all party meeting is convened before taking such big decisions but whenever the matter is discussed at all party meeting it is mostly recommended to Parliamentary Standing Committee and always remains in Limbo forever of which women reservation bill is a testimony.

 

The government played emotional card, divided opposition on the issue of Nationalism, put security arrangements well in place, Valley was cleansed from terrorists. But the government appeared resolute even if it had to evacuate Amarnath pilgrims and tourists in Kashmir facing their ire.

 

It is not that things remained hunky dory for the duo. The issue of demonetisation is still debatable, GDP has gone down to 5 per cent, cleanliness mission of Ganga proved to be a damp squib, unemployment still haunts the country but Modi-Shah duo take everything to a logical conclusion come what may.


The government neither succumbed to the pressure of political parties nor civil society on any of the issues as mentioned above. Moreover, they are rather preparing road map for J&K to ensure smooth elections in the state. BJP’s organizational structure is working day in and day out to ensure a win. De-radicalisation is another plan on which the government is very serious about in its K plan.
