DEBATE (1)

As I see it, three politicians who are fit to succeed Mr Modi are Mr Navin Patnaik, Mr Nitin Gadkari and Mr Rajnath Singh, provided age does not come in their way.

DEBATE(2)

“ After Modi,Who? ”

I am filled with a sense of déjà vu. A similar question arose during Pt Nehru’s failing health. Nothing unusual happened after his passing away. Shastri ji emerged  from out of the blue. Nature is supposed to take care of such eventuality and fill the void. No one is indispensable. Everyone is replaceable.

Coming to the pointed question  : After Modi, Who,  I would like to be upfront and fiercely  independent .I hope my views are published in this site, irrespective of whether these support  the present dispensation or not.

It would be inappropriate to suggest that Modi is matchless. We, Indians revel in raising the question :  "After Nehru, who?", "After Indira, who?", "After Rajiv, who?", and now, "After Modi, who?" And, every time, voters themselves provide the answer. This is the beauty of Parliamentary democracy.

If, anyone expects the WIC surfers to name Amit Shah, Yogi and Nitin Gadkari as the three hopefuls for PM’s post, it would be mistaken. Rajnath Singh cannot be left out and many more. A bitter intra- party conflict would ensue. PM Modi is, at least, holding the flock together.

But, at what cost? The dividing line between the Union of India and BJP functionaries is very thin, almost non-existent. Public memory is no longer short. It remembers the travails of              de-monetisation, GST , farmers’ distress, question marks on defence deals , cast-based polarization of votes, assets monetization, Pegasus etc. Much would depend on the outcome of results in assemblies  elections and the fighting spirit of the weak opposition. It would be premature, at this stage, to make a guess on “Who, after Modi”? Turn of events could throw up new possibilities, new personalities, new permutations and combinations.

DATE WITH RTI

Information about death of sister

Brother of the deceased third party sought certain information relating to the death of his sister. The PIO submitted that the appellant was requested to deposit photocopying charges of Rs 16/- which he failed to deposit. The First appeal was disposed of reiterating the same reply. The appellant claimed that he had not received any replies to his RTI Application. The CIC held that in case the PIO provides the proof of delivery of the demand of further fee, the appellant shall deposit Rs 16/- photocopying charges to obtain the copies; Failing which, the PIO should provide the information free of cost..

Comments

If a reply is not received by the RTI applicant within the prescribed time period, he is entitled to receive the information free of cost and the PIO may be liable to penalty. In this case, the CIC ought to have verified this fact during the hearing rather than giving an open ended order.
