RSS affiliate organizations all set for a revamp with young leaders to take over

New Delhi: After partial revamping of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) by generation shift, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) is also planning a generation shift in all its affiliate organizations to make it more responsive. These changes are expected at several levels and various organizations including the BJP.

 

It is being said that the RSS is planning infuse a battery of new leadership up to 50 years of age in these various affiliate organizations of the  RSS. The purpose of this initiative is that these leaders are able to work for the responsibilities given to them for 10 to 15 years.

 

Though the work in this regard was initiated long time back and this was the reason that responsibilities of some of the people at the top has been increased but the process will be speeded up after the annual meeting of All India Pracharaks at Vijayawada in Andhra Pradesh gets over. Actually, the way working style of the BJP has changed in the recent times the party needs aggressive Pracharaks.

 

However, there was historical expansion of the BJP in the country but there is still some scope in southern and coastal parts of the country as the organization feels. This is being reminded by the BJP leadership that it is yet not the time to stop, halt or take rest. The BJP is of the view that golden period of the party is yet to come. So with lots of people being moved to the government, many new faces will be visible in the BJP organization. Similar thing will also happen in the other RSS affiliate organisations.

 

Political scenario in the country has undergone a major change and acceptability of the RSS and the BJP is at its zenith and its increasing further by the day. The BJP has wrested power at the Centre for the second consecutive terms. So the organization feels that this is the right time to give away big responsibilities to young leaders. They will have time by their side and have resources with them as well. It is being said that after the Vijayawada meeting that ends on July 13, the RSS will start working in this direction.

Poetic justice: Ire and fire of power

Is the DG post of Fire Service, Civil Defense, and Home Guards (FS,CD&HG)  jinxed?

 

In recent memory, except for Prakash Mishra (Retd IPS:1977: OR) in 2016 who got it after retirement, the job has been seen as a punishment posting. For instance, Gujarat Police chief P C Thakur (IPS:1979: GJ) was abruptly shifted from Gujarat to Centre by appointing him abruptly on April 15, 2016, as DG of FS, CD & HG. Thakur refused to take up the assignment and never looked back. All it held a lesson; stay calm and composed while holding a high-profile public office.

 

Friday was a day of poetic justice for M Nageshwar Rao (IPS:1986:OR); the former interim chief of CBI and ADG, CBI. The services of  Rao were placed under Union Home Ministry as DG, Fire Service, Civil Defence, and Home Guards by "temporarily downgrading the post" to the level of additional director general till his retirement in July 2020. Presently, he is Additional Director General, CBI.

 

May it be recalled that immediately after infected bad blood started coursing through the arteries of the CBI, then director Alok Verma was unceremoniously transferred to the fire services. Verma declined to obey that order on the ground that he had already superannuated before being appointed the CBI director which was a fixed term office. And since he is transferred from the CBI, he was no longer qualified to hold the regular term office of DG Fire Services.

 

When Verma was transferred from CBI, Rao was given charge of his office on an ad hoc basis. After taking over the charge, the first thing Rao did was to transfer 13 SP and ASP level officers at one go which was later revoked in January 2019. He did it twice just to affront Verma. The transfer issue is now pending in the courts.

 

The Directorate General of Civil Defence was established in 1962 under the Home Ministry for all policy and planning matters related to civil defense and its running partners Home Guards and Fire Services.

 

What the recent development underlines is that no job is high or low. It's a doer's contribution that shines or blemishes a job.

Will EAC-PM be reconstituted in September this year?

By IndianMandarins 06 Jul 2019

After the reconstitution of NITI Aayog on June 06, 2019, the pay and perks of Dr Bibek Debroy and Ratal P Watal had raised some questions. These question arose as both Debroy and Watal did not find a place in the reconstituted NITI Aayog team. But reportedly, the PMO has settled the vexed issues well on time.

 

When the PM Economic Advisory Council was revived in September 2017, Debroy (Member, NITI) was made Chairman and Watal (Principal Adviser, NITI) was made Member Secretary of the EAC-PM. Both of them drew salaries and availed perks from NITI Aayog. After they lost positions in the reconstituted NITI Aayog, the nodal agency for the EAC-PM, the PMO was prompt enough to issue an order making provisions that they would be entitled to the same status, pay and allowances they were entitled to before the reconstitution of NITI Aayog on June 06, 2019. As the nodal agency, the expenditure borne by NITI may be debited to EAC-PM Budget till September 25, 2019, or till such date, the EAC-PM exists.

 

However, this has made people speculate whether EAC-PM would be reconstituted in September last week.
