FORUM

This refers to the whisper, "Pakistan Defence Minister is Chairman of PIA". (WIC 9-5-08).
PIA occupies a special place in the psyche of President Musharraf for it was aboard a PIA flight in 1999 that the General was catapulted to power in Pakistan. While the then PM Nawaz Sharif tried his powerful best to divert the flight carrying his Army Chief General Musharraf the flight controllers of PIA preferred to obey the commands given by the GHQ and the corps commanders at Karachi and Islamabad. Had the PIA bosses been loyal to Nawaz Sharif the current history of Pakistan would have been perilous for Mush. It is in this context that the psychological importance of Chowdhary Ahmad Mukhtar's appointment as chief of PIA has to be understood.
Apart from being the Defence Minister of Pakistan and a loyal PPP man Ahmad Mukhtar is an ardent fan of Musharraf. In an interview with the AAZ TV of Pakistan on 3 April this year Mukhtar had said, "Musharraf has a broader vision and good ties with other countries. Working with Musharraf will be in the better interest of Pakistan and the government could secure international aid and support if it followed the policies laid down by President Musharraf"
As could be expected the Defence Minister's utterances sparked off an angry reaction from Nawaz Sharif and his party men. Khwaza Saad Rafiq, a PML (N) MNA and Pakistan's Minister for youth and cultural affairs said that these could be Ahmad Mukhtar's personal views but as far as PML (N) was concerned, "Pakistan and Musharraf cannot go together". To avoid an open display of their differences the media managers from both PML (N) and PPP side tried to block the Defence Minister's interview from the print media but couldn't succeed perhaps because Mush and Mukhtar had greater influence. Does this indicate the future shape of power equations in Pakistan's ruling circles? Let our security analysts ponder over.

Who says charge is not given to Head Clerk
This is regarding "Why not give charge to Head Clerk in every office ?"..... Who said that the charge is not given to the Head Clerk? It can be modified a little to Chief Clerk for all purposes. Some people may perhaps like to create a large battalion of frustrated faces, hence it is not surprising that many faces may reflect frustration at first as well as last glance. The posts of JS and above no doubt are open for services may be in principle, but no one from general public can accept and believe that there also exist something like non IAS any where at that level. In democracy all power, whatsoever it be, is vested in the people or their elected representatives. It really surprises one when it (power) is either found stolen or made to take refuge on some other ego emitting points. People are well acquainted with the ancient region specific art to prove others fool, incapable, inefficient by using hooks or crooks. Very sharp competition, indeed, made very easy for special people meant for special purposes. Those who learnt all basics from head clerks don't have the courage to give all charges to them but donot feel shy in seeing other prospective equals being slapped by this unrecognised guru.

Aaj Ki Aawaz

Rahul Baba will cent percent be choosing candidates on their winning ability,
As I understand nothing to do with their capability!!!
And Rahul ji when will you realize that Congress is sick and needs ilaaj????
And on my showing you the true picture why do you get so naaraaz!!!
Karnataka itself will show you Congress's true state,
And for this not long you will have to wait!!!
You need to think out of the box or dabaa,
Otherwise pucca hai Congress ko gull honne waala hai dabaa!!!
Too much Federalism is Congress's bane!!!!
By shifting to Federal and State or local mode there's a lot to gain!!!
Without local Satraps at the State level Congress will remain weak,
Mummy se iss baath pe why don't you speak!!!
Gandhis can rule Congress with an iron fist but please do also look at the reducing reach!!!!
Machiavelli yehi karta hai teach!!!
If you don't encourage Leadership at the grassroots Congress will be bereft of Leaders!!!
And all that Congress will have is High Command pleaders!!!
Pleaders can please High Command but elections they cannot win!!!!
And slowly but surely they all are doing Congress in!!
The alcohol and cancer stick lobby is gunning for Ramdoss,
Because of his efforts to warn public about usage of both dono Lobbies are very cross!!!
In the Venugopal matter he's wrong but in public warning matter he's abs right!!!!
And on the fact that he's doing a lot of good please do not loose sight!!!
Politicking should not blur the good someone is doing!!!
And just for politics one should not resort to booing!!!
As Manmohan and gang try to gupp their way through the inflation mess,
Inflation ne accelerator kiya hai press!!!
Now get ready for a Diesel shortage,
And then inflation into double digits will rage!!!
Sonia does not know the abc of economics and Manmohan who knows has failed badly!!!
And our FM PC or Potty (loony) Chiddy has behaved madly!!!!
I say madly because he's on his own trip,
And on reality than man has lost his grip!!!
Inflation is spurting and he terms the rise as marginal or wee bit,
For being India's FM he is not fit!!!
This is a supply fueled problem and it's supply issues that have to be addressed!!!
If you ask me the wrong buttons RBI and FM have pressed!!!!
On the Oil front there is no shortage of Oil,
Its speculation that's making prices of Oil boil!!!!
And a big contributor is the weakening US Dollar,
USA 's spendthrift nature, Iraq and bursting bubbles have got it by the collar!!!
OPEC Members themselves agree the true price is around $ 80 and not a cent more!!!
But speculation karr rahi gore!!!!
Bush's Texan Buddies are laughing to the Bank!!!!
In Texan bhaasha they say ' Pardner's sure pulled a larrupin (finger licking) prank'!!!!
My guess is post Bush this World will be a lot safer, saner and livable,
In short you can say from extremely unstable to stable!!!!
Confucius says….. First The Wimp pushed the World to war and then The Chimp did the same!!!!
Many would like to replace their Bush surname with Shame!!!!
Continues..... It should be George W Shame Senior and Junior!!!
And there's no doubt when it comes to shame Junior has outdone Senior!!!
