new delhi corridor gossips

new delhi political gossips

As a thanks giving to the presence of Jayalalitha at the 
Election Commission anniversary function in Delhi, the
Pennagaram assembly by0election to the Tamil Nadu
assembly has been cancelled and now would be held
on 14th May 2010. This is what AIADMK also wanted.
But DMK ruling party has called Navin Chawla as stooge of 
Congress and AIADMK. Utterances by Karunanidhi is not
at all new. Earlier DMK general council called names
of former CEC T S Krishnamurthy and wanted the removal.

Vijayaraman the Special Director General of Central 
Reserve Police Force hosted a get to gether to hearld the
arrival of his grand son. Name of the baby is Bundle of Joy.
To bless the baby, in a traditional Keralite style, he got
Pandits to sprinkle holy water. After Lunch when the guests
were leaving he handed over a cactus plant.A novel idea.
Other Police Officers wives wanted to replicate the same style
when they become grandparents.
Union Minister A Raja is upset. With TRAI. As its Chairman J Sridhar Sarma
spoke of the importance of 4G (fourth generation of Telecom innovations)
that TRAI is preparing a status paper. This has created not only confidence
crisis but also fiscal as auction bid for 3G would drastically come down.
The Telecom revolution of 3G would be put to waste basket.
Shiv Shankar Menon  is given a status  of a Union Minister of State.
as he holds the office of National Security Advisor in the Prime Minister Office.
But his batch mate in IAS is MN Prasad also in Prime Minister Office. But holding
a status of a Secretary to Government of India.Certainly complexities will play
a havoc. Much more irritating is that Prasad is a student of 
Dr Manmohan Singh in Delhi University in early 1970s. 
Governor was waiting for the appointment with the President 
Prathibha Patil in Rashtrapathi Bhavan. She briskly walked
into the room and Governor stood up. She smiled and asked
him when did you become the Chief Minister? The aged Governor 
who was General of Indian Army was shocked - but politely 
told her that he is Governor of the State. 
Prathibha Patil is also not at fault, Whe the appointments
were given she should be properly briefed, her secretariat should be
blamed for such a sorry state of affairs. As Governor came out
of Rashtrapathi Bhavan, was heard conveying this sad incident
to his wife
