Gadkari’s business sense !

By IndianMandarins 19 Oct 2019

To say that Nitin Jairam Gadkari is among a few politicians in India who has a great business sense too won’t be wrong. But many a times he is criticised for splurging money on certain projects but later on he is applauded for his vision. Multi-level mechanised parking bay appears to have been one among them.

In the last few months Gadkari’s ministry is suddenly flooded with dozens of contracts including that of MCDs and Govt of Gujarat which appears to have become a new stream of revenue earnings.

Statue of Unity, PM Modi’s ambitious project at Kewadia, is attracting huge influx of tourist vehicle everyday and Sardar Sarovar Project officials too are in talks with NHIDCL top officials for construction of a parking bay with a capacity of over 2000 vehicles.

It may be recalled that Gadkari had faced lots of criticisms about feasibility and spending of huge public money when his ministry came up with the idea of building a multi-level parking bay for Transport Bhawan. Sometimes later in a public gathering early this year, he recalled series of criticism on the issue. Then he underlined that his idea was to create an example which might pull demands from various states and agencies winning contracts for the ministry.

Recently, North and South MCD (Delhi) too finalised the MoU with his ministry for constructing over a dozen of such parking bays each costing approx. Rs 15 crore. And such proposals from across the country are in queue.

Is YSM acting like Adhia?

By IndianMandarins 08 Mar 2019

Following the announcement of his successor, Yudhvir Singh Malik (IAS:1983:HY), the outgoing Union Secretary, Ministry of Road Transport & Highways, is reportedly planning to engage himself in farming after his retirement on 31 March 2019. It is said that YSM’s public posturing might be part of a move to show his unwillingness for any post-retirement assignment.

 

Many of his colleagues who know him closely don't take him at his face value because of his proximity to the center of power. In power corridors, it is often narrated how YSM entered into a heated argument with one of his batchmates during a Video Conferencing in the presence of the top authority. Reportedly, this didn't impact his credentials.

 

Insiders say that despite his commitment to abstain from accepting any post-retirement assignment, Hasmukh Adhia (IAS:1981:GJ) on March 01, 2019 appointed Part-time Non-Official Director and Non-Executive Chairman on the Board of Directors of Bank of Baroda for a period of three years. It's likely that YSM may follow the same path if he doesn't get lured by a career in farming.
