Kamath and Dasgupta likely to be inducted in Modi government

New Delhi: Names of several technocrats are doing round to be inducted in the council of minister of the Modi government including K V Kamath, Dileep Parikh and Amitabh Kant besides some other who were left out and some other new faces.

The government appears to have made up its mind on K V Kamath, nominated Rajya Sabha member Swapan Dasgupta besides a couple of JD (U) leaders. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to induct some new ministers post budget.

The Modi government is constantly under pressure on the economic front and the government was looking for some technocrats for finance ministry. Some more ministers may be inducted from the BJP and some of them might be divested. Dasgupta is likely to be inducted asminister of state in the Human Resource Development Ministry. Niti Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant is also in the reckoning who may be considered if the government decides that it wants to strengthen the expertise bench.

Some old faces may make a come back like Suresh Prabhu, who earlier held the charge of Commerce and Industry and Railways. Some others who were not given chance in May are likely to be inducted this time round as many ministers are having more than two ministries.

Is PM himself looking the making of budget?

One might like or dislike policies and ways of the PM and his government on handling certain things but no one can question his commitment on governance. He is not here to give up as grapewine is abuzz that the PM himself is supervising the budget making process so much so that he is looking into every nitty gritty.


His entire focus is on the annual affair to be presented on the first day of February. Even the cabinet is not happening these days due to preparations as it is taking major part of his time in looking and discussing the matter and giving them final shape issue by issue. In between, he is meeting with the council of minister and with such ministers who had fallen short of performance.


Officers involved in the budget making process too have to put in long working hours with the PM, if sources are to be believed something good is likely in the entire budget announcments. Let’s keep fingures crossed.

PM to evaluate performance of his council of ministers

By IndianMandarins 03 Jan 2020

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to review performance of his ministers and ministry’s work over the coming few weeks. This review meeting is important as performance of his ministers will be discussed in here however there is still 3-4 months left for the Modi government to complete an year of its second term. It will also seek suggestion for improving condition of Indian economy.

This had been the common practice of the Modi government even during the previous tenure but just before proposed reshuffle, this exercise becomes all the more important. Sources said that the PM wanted to see the performance of his ministers before some changes are enacted in his team. A few ministers may go; a few are likely to get their ministries changed and a few new ministers are likely to be inducted including from allies.

Union home ministry is generally perceived to be the best performing ministry but there are several ministries whose performance is not upto the mark even for commoners.

If sources are to be believed then the performance of Union law minister Ravi Shankar Prashad and Union HRD minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nisank and finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman have been some of the worst performing ministries. It is not that their performance will be assessed but what action has been taken will also be looked upon.

Reshuffle in the Modi government has been long due but it was not happening somehow but sources said that the meeting of council of minister will help the PM to firm up his mind on certain issues. Changes will have bearings of this meeting.

Hi-tech burglars stole info and valuables from minister’s house

By IndianMandarins 17 Dec 2019

The burglary at the residence of one of the important ministers in the Modi government is quite intriguing. The thieves appear very high tech as they allegedly  shared some info  stored in  laptops in the house with some unidentified persons  besides taking away some valuables.  Investigations are on... Will have to wait till the completion of the investigations.

SC writes history with Ayodhya verdict but NaMo Govt incredible too!

By IndianMandarins 10 Nov 2019

With the pronouncement of judgment on title suit on Ramjanmabhoomi and Babri mosque, a long standing dispute between Hindu and Muslims seems to be over with all credit goes to the judiciary but no less acclaim could be given to the NaMo administration as the matter has been resolved during the time Narendra Modi at the helm.

What is more interesting is that the country responded very well to the decision except a few aberrations. Unlike phrase used by wordsmiths in such a situation that ‘eerie silence prevails’, now people are of the view that the Supreme Court has decided the matter in most judicious manner and most importantly unanimously. So let’s bury the hatchet and move on.

Despite the provocation made by the opposition that Ram Temple will be made an election issue by the BJP to polarize Hindu votes in view of Sangh Pariwar demanding day-to-day hearing in the court and VHP putting pressure on the government to bring a legislation in Parliament in this regard. They were also planning to start a movement similar to their movement in 1990s. But suddenly the VHP went into shells and postponed the matter for post election scenario but for obvious reasons.

The PM was very categorical when he had made it clear in election rallies that the matter is in the court and let the court take a call on it. He was so cautious about his constitutional obligation that despite visiting Faizabad for an election rally around 30 kilometres away from Ayodhya, he avoided temptation of paying his obeisance to Ram Lalla.

The day of decision on one of the most vexed issue of the modern times passed normally and the morning is even better with history being made not only in Ayodhya but also at Kartarpur. The Ayodhya issue that has an around 500-year old history soaked with blood of innocent people and if this was none of our business kind of attitude of British that made the matter remain indecisive. A particular blend of politics kept it alive post-independent and later on the issue turning into vote-bank politics without any exception in terms of beneficiaries.

But for the apt handling of the issue by the present dispensation has not only saved many innocent lives but country as such has come to the term to put a lid on political Djin of Ayodhya. The government has done a Jammu and Kashmir in Uttar Pradesh with taking all possible measures supported by intelligence inputs. But this was not enough, the Sangh Pariwar has entrusted senior functionaries like Krishna Gopal and Ram Lal to establish dialogue with Muslim community and Hindus to accept the judgment whatever it could be.

Jamiat Ulama e Hind chief Maulana Arshad Madani meeting RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat and Mehmood Madani meeting Krishna Gopal was something unimaginable. Two important seats of Nizamuddin Aulia and Ajmer Sharief appealing to accept the SC judgment the way it is has worked among the Muslim community.

Besides the judiciary and the Modi government, the department of justice will also be remembered whenever this issue is talked about. They were not just bystanders but played their bit in the making of the history and witnessing it with sense of achievement but silently. But they will enjoy the glory looking at it hindsight for sure.

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

By IndianMandarins 18 Sep 2019

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

By IndianMandarins 16 Sep 2019

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.
