MODI GOVT

Will a unified transport ministry be a reality in NaMo 2.0?

The Modi govt has once again started gauging prospects of merging rail, roads, aviation and shipping into one unified transport ministry as practiced in countries like China, Japan and a few others. Reportedly, a panel of secretaries was constituted by the PM to recommend transformative ideas about transport and infrastructure sectors to provide integrated multi-modal mobility solutions. Cities like London and New York have a single body to govern public transport.

 

Cabinet Secretary has already had a meeting with the panel of secretaries which may make a presentation of the proposal to the PM soon. The NaMo administration had conceived the idea of an omnibus transport ministry in its first term only which appears to continue in NaMo 2.0 as well.

Modi, the great leveler: Some old tactics don’t work in NaMo regime

Just keep matching dots ever since NaMo administration took over the command over the system and you would find a pattern. Modi has been a great leveler.

 

For Modi dispensation, everyone is made to realise that they are equal be it a commoner or a cabinet minister. No one can force any decision whatsoever their past had been as important decisions will have to be approved by the PMO and there is no guarantee that senior minister’s wish is always honored.

 

In the cases of appointment of bureaucrats, a senior union minister was denied officers of his choice during NaMo 1.0 but a minister close to Nagpur establishment was also very politely communicated recently that he would have to work with the same officers he was wanting to be removed despite the minister going to the extent of threatening.

Some changes in government and organization likely but wait is little long!

By IndianMandarins 02 Sep 2019

More or less the Modi 2.0 government is working smoothly except some trouble on the economic front with GDP coming down to 5 per cent but some changes are likely in the first quarter of 2020 with a new BJP president taking over and some new appointments in the organization. This is the latest buzz in the party.

 

It is being talked about that some more faces might be inducted in the council of ministers as by the time the PM will have a fare idea about the performance of his ministers and will be able to take a call on them. So in all likelihood some of the names who were in Modi 1.0 and were dropped in the present government and some new faces might be inducted in the reshuffle but that will happen only after January 14, if at all it happens.

 

Actually some changes in the organization are likely in view of the new BJP president taking over after December 2019 when Amit Shah steps down as president who at the moment having dual responsibility and a new president takes over. The way Jagat Prakash Nadda was not given ministry as he was to be given responsibility in the organization, some ministers might also be moved to the organization whose performance is not up to the mark.

 

Some other leaders might be rewarded and these changes will be made looking at the political scenario of the country. Someone from the Jammu and Kashmir might be inducted in the organization.
