Karnataka, Kamal and Kamal Nath: BJP’s opponents under constant pressure

Union minister and SAD leader Harsimrat Kaur Badal tweeted removing Kamal Nath from the post of MP CM for his involvement in 1984 Sikh riots case but it has a bigger political implication both for the BJP and the Congress alike. What is that?

The Congress has been accusing the BJP of its alleged intention of destabilizing Congress governments in MP, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh after Karnataka government was taken over by the BJP replacing the Congress. Actually it has been NaMo-Shah strategy to keep their opponents on tenterhooks by keeping them under pressure. This seems to be the approach towards these states as well.

However, the BJP is in no position to do anything in Chhattisgarh but yes in MP they might do something if not topple the government, speculation is rife that Jyotiraditya Scindia may replace Kamal Nath in MP as Jyotiraditya Scindia joining the BJP will have its own bearing the party and the BJP would eschew to go for any such move. A crippled non-performing government equally suits the BJP.

Not opening many fronts at the same time, the BJP will go slow in Rajasthan as Sachin Pilot has not forgotten that he was denied his due as CM’s post was given to Ashok Gehlot but Sachin will have to wait for some more time. This is clear that the NDA leadership does not do anything in such a way that anyone can read, understand or fathom their next move.

MP CS appointment challenged: SC to examine corruption charges

The Supreme Court has admitted a petition challenging the appointment of S R Mohanty (IAS:1982:MP) as Chief Secretary of Madhya Pradesh on the ground that he was allegedly involved in a corruption case pertaining to state industrial development corporation. Accordingly, a bench of CJI Ranjan Gogoi and Justices Sanjiv Khanna issued a notice to the Centre and sought its reply in six weeks.

 

Senior advocate Maninder Singh, appearing for petitioner Manohar Dalal, said that the present case demonstrates a glaring abuse of power by Mohanty.

 

He argued that the charge of abuse of power is established by the fact that DG EOW who was probing the corruption case against him was removed on January 02, immediately after Mohanty took charge as chief secretary on December 31, 2018.

 

Singh said the DG of EOW was appointed only six months before that but was replaced.

The petitioner had sought directions for quashing Mohanty's appointment and a fresh departmental inquiry against him.

 

Dalal also pleaded for transferring the case registered by EOW against Mohanty to CBI for further investigation. He sought that fresh departmental inquiry be held under the supervision of a retired judge of the apex court or the high court.

 

The petitioner, a practicing advocate in MP High Court said that Mohanty is also required to be shifted from the critical and important post of Chief Secretary as was done in the corruption case against Neera Yadav, who was chief secretary of Uttar Pradesh.    

 

"During his tenure as the Managing Director of MPSIDC from 2000-2004, SR Mohanty disbursed loans in violation of the decisions of the state government and contrary to Article of Association of MPSIDC," the plea said.

 

It added that the Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) in its 2003 report had pointed out that MPSIDC which was under Mohanty, illegally disbursed financial assistance without the approval of the state government and contrary to the provisions of Article of Association.

 

Referring to a report of Raghav Chandra, who was a successor to Mohanty in MPSIDC, the plea said that he had pointed out that Mohanty disbursed Rs 91.57 crore to 18 borrowers, of which some were fake companies.

 

The state government then sent a report to the state EOW which on detailed inquiry registered FIR in 2004 against 84 persons including Mohanty for abusing his official position by conniving with private companies and had caused loss to the state government.

   

"Despite serious corruption case pending against SR Mohanty, the newly elected state government, which came back into power after 15 years, appointed him as the chief secretary of the state of Madhya Pradesh on December 31, 2018," it said.

   

It said that before the appointment of Mohanty as chief secretary, the state government had completed the departmental inquiry, pending against him for 11 years, within one week and exonerated him of all charges.

   

"The entire inquiry was a farce and concluded post haste only to exonerate SR Mohanty so that he can be appointed as Chief Secretary," it said, adding that immediately after being appointed Mohanty on January 2, transferred the Madhu Kumar as DG of EOW and replaced him with a new officer.

   

"The state government has decided that through newly appointed director general of EOW, it would withdraw the corruption charges against SR Mohanty pending before the competent court," the plea said.

  

It further said that the state government has also decided to withdraw a case against Mohanty pending in the apex court.

   

"The closure of such a serious corruption case against senior official would also amount to a miscarriage of justice, who abused his official position and caused loss to the state exchequer", it said.

What's Kamal Nath up to?

By IndianMandarins 10 Feb 2019

What's he up to is the question being asked in political circles, particularly after his administration invoked the National Security Act against cow slaughterer.

 

At one go, Madhya Pradesh CM Kamal Nath transferred 221 police personnel, comprising 34 Indian Police Service (IPS) and 187 state police service (SPS) officials, across the state.

 

The transfers were announced in two orders issued by the state's Home department on February 08 evening and February 09 morning.


According to the circular, the 187 SPS officers transferred comprise 35 Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) and 152 Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) rank officials.

 

MR Krishna, a 1985 batch IPS officer, was appointed the chairman of MP Police Housing Corporation, a post earlier held by Rishi Kumar Shukla, who recently took over as CBI director.

 

Ruchi Vardhan Mishra was appointed Indore's Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP), it said.

 

The government also appointed Superintendent of Police (SP) for nine districts comprising Indore (East), Dewas, Katni, Hoshangabad, Datia, Narsinghpur, Dindori, Agar Malwa and Harda.

Kamal Nath begins his inning against BJP

By IndianMandarins 21 Jan 2019

Senior IAS officer M Gopal Reddy (IAS:1985:MP) has been assigned the task of investigating suspected irregularities in Makhanlal Chaturvedi National University of Journalism. He will head a three-member committee which has been directed to submit its report in 15 days.

 

It may be recalled that in 2017, Reddy who was then Additional Secretary, MHA, was unceremoniously repatriated (prematurely) to his cadre state of Madhya Pradesh.


Chief secretary S R Mohanty had, on Friday, issued the circular to form a probe committee to look into the allegations that the syllabus of University of Journalism and Mass Communication “promotes a particular ideology”, and to probe alleged irregularities in the recruitment of faculty.

 

The BJP has dubbed the move as unconstitutional. “The chief secretary has no authority to interfere in the autonomy of a university". It may be mentioned that the Vice-Chancellor and Rector of the university resigned in the past fortnight or so.

 

The committee will probe allegations that the university ignored UGC guidelines while recruiting and appointing teachers since 2003. Employees appointed in the last 15 years will come under the scanner, say sources. If the committee finds irregularities in recruitment of faculty, it will fix accountability.
