Lutyens' Delhi: Bureaucracy abuzz with a colleague's importance

It passed off unnoticed in Lutyens' Delhi. But more than a week after, its importance is dawning upon senior officials.

Despite who’s who of power corridor in Delhi attending a private function of a joint secretary-level officer that had failed to catch eyeballs of many in Lutyens but people in the power corridors are still whispering about the affair cautiously even a week has gone by.

'Mundan Sanskar' of the daughter of a Joint Secretary level IAS officer working in the Commerce Ministry has become a matter of discussion for many senior officials these days. What they appear to be astonished about is that there are over four hundred Joint Secretary level officers across all ministries and departments in the Govt of India but this seems to be something very unheard of that the top echelons of the country did not miss to attend the invitation.

So much so that the event was attended by President of India, Prime Minister of the country, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Commerce/Industry minister, Health/IT Minister, Chief of Defence Staff General Vipin Rawat, chief ministers of several states and dozens of former Union ministers (UPA)  and Union secretaries too attending the function but it went unnoticed in Lutyens' Delhi which keeps track of the fact even how many times PM clapped during the budget presentation.

Crouching tigress’ hidden agenda: Didi meets PM

By IndianMandarins 19 Sep 2019

Creating narrative and ground reality are two equally important things and ‘Didi’ appears to understood it very well. At least meeting of the WB CM Mamta Banerjee with the PM Modi and agreeing to meet Amit Shah suggests so.

Mamata might have been able to address a section of her voters in West Bengal but constantly being at the loggerhead with the Centre did not produce any good to her.

In fact, Didi’s one of the dearest projects lying with the home ministry has been changing name of West Bengal to Bangla. On the other hand It is believed that the moment name change takes place memory of partition of Bengals fades away which Sangh Pariwar doesn’t endorse. This has apparently been the reason that Mamata needs to meet Shah which she might have agreed reluctantly.

But the issue on which Didi failed to get approval from a leader like Rajnath Singh, getting approval of Amit Shah will be an onerous task. Let’s see how long this bonhomie continues as Shah does not give any concession to opposition.
