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.
