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.

Will EAC-PM be reconstituted in September this year?

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.

Rahul’s tweet on Yoga Day: Bad publicity can be better than no, or poor, media visibility ?

By IndianMandarins 22 Jun 2019

Congress Party president Rahul Gandhi has of late been keen on optics though for several awkward reasons. He tweeted on Friday appending a couple of pictures of Army Dog Unit under the caption ‘New India’. This has, indeed, tried to take a dig though in a roundabout way at the virtual cult that the ruling BJP has been able to build over the years around PM Narendra Modi and his pet programme Yoga Day which has attracted appreciation from across the world.

 

Rahul’s tweet with the picture of Army dog squad canines going through yoga motions alongside the Jawans of the unit on PM’s favourite Yoga Day, June 21, has greatly ruffled feathers in political quarters. The intended pun pulled by Congress leader has obviously been directed against the formidable rivals.

 

The people in power corridors say that RG’s tweet might have spurred from the fact that BJP appears to have grabbed most of the hot national issues from the hands of its opponents, leaving almost none for Congress.  

 

Yet, the tweet has become a media sensation at a time when the grand old party has been boycotting television debates by withdrawing its spokespersons and senior leaders from TV channels. Congress blames most media channels of habitually fawning over the BJP and the Government led by it and treating the Opposition, or mainly the Congress, with visible bias.

 

Thus, the Congress president has tried via his tweet to bounce back and possibly seize and dominate the media scene, courtesy a TV spectacle like Yoga Day, while his party is ostensibly shunning the TV channels for past few weeks or so.

 

More than being the brainchild of Rahul the tweet appears to be a salvo fired by the communications department of the Congress. The department has been drawing flak under the stewardship of Congress leader from Haryana Randeep Singh Surjewala for its weak media strategy and poor outreach. This is more so following the crushing defeat of the party in the recent Lok Sabha polls.

 

The Congress tweet clearly tries not only to toggle along millions of other Yoga Day posts on twitter but is also meant to send the BJP in a tizzy by scoring more hits and beating it in its favourite social media game. This is so while being unmindful of the savage troll that the Congress leader has to come to face by now for his quite controversial tweet. It has been castigated by top BJP Ministers Rajnath Singh and Amit Shah among others.

 

The idea behind Rahul’s tweet has apparently been taken from the brand name of an old British music company HMV, or His Master’s Voice.

 

Rahul has indeed been mercilessly trolled. Yet, it appears that the idea behind his apparently bizarre move is that even bad publicity can be better than no, or poor, media visibility as has been the case with the Congress in recent times.
