THE WHITE HOUSE

Dr Manmohan Singh
Prime Minister of the
Republic of India
Dear Mr Prime Minister
On behalf of the American people, it was my sincere pleasure
to experience such a warm welcome from the people of India during
my visit last November. Both Micheilie and I would like to thank you
again for the hospitality show by you, Gursharan and the people
of India I viewed the warm public reception as a clear reflection
of our nations' strong sense of shared values and kindered democratic
beliefs that underpin and drive our strategic partnershp.
In the spirit of this friendship I want to underscore the stregegic
importance the United States attches to the selection of a US proposal
in India's Medicum Multi Role Combat Aircrat MMRCA competition
The United States Government is offering India two of the mot advanced
multi mission combat aircraft in the world-the Boeign F/A 18IN and the
Lockheed Martin F 16IN. These aricraft have a demonstrated qualitative
militaty advantage over any current fourth generation plus aircraft,
without the associated developmental or technical risks and both aircraft
have an unmatched track record for reliability, resulting in lower
opearting and maintenance costs. The US proposals will dramataically
enhance India's own aeerospace industrial base and defence capabilities.
Additionaly you can be confident in the probity and transparency of doing
business with American Companies.
Let me reassure you that the United States is a willing capable and
reliable defense partner to India. High technology defense sales are
increasingly a cornerstone of our strategic partnership. We have broken
new ground with the advanced systems we are offering India with these
aricrafts including the operatinally proven US Active Electronically
Scanned Array AESA radar technology. This type of technology is only
provided to our closest allies and partners. Equipped with tihs technology,
we are confident both of thees aircraft will exceed the expectations of
the Idnian Ari Force. We are committed to continuing to offer India superior
technology, including efforts to jointly develop the finest cutting
edge technologies. I view the MMRCA acquisition as a key step along this path.
During my visit in November 2010we committed to expand our relationship
in new and ambitious areas giving our peopels a vision of strategic
partnership that promises decades of close collaboration in the pursuit of
the shared goals of propsperity and security. Through our recent initiatives
the United States has demonstrated its committment to India's rise and its global
leadership role. The selection of a US proposal for the MMRCA tender
will strengthen our partnership launch our defese cooperation on an ambitious
and rewarding trajectroy and provide strategic continuity to our growing relationship.
I am grateful fo our friendshp and I respectfully ask that your
Government will give its full consideration to the commercial technical
and strategic merits of the US proposals.
President of USA

NEW DELHI POLITICAL SNIPPETS
President Prathibha Patil has convened three days Governors Conference
from 10th onwards. She wants women empowerment issue to be discussed.
Also President wants to highlight the success story of NAREGA. For the first
time President wanted Prime Minster Office to present a power point presentation
to Governors about the Right to Information and Right to Education Acts.
UPA2 may come for a criticism in her opening remarks to the Governors
Conference, as she stepped in the last leg of her tenure in President Estates
"How many MPs take serious part in Question Hour, and parliamentary works"
A Study by Rajya Sabha Secretariat of four sessions in 2010 explains that
many MPs do not even attend the Session. If this analysis is made public
according to a senior Official, the faith in Democracy would get shattered.
However, Chairman Rajya Sabha plans to write to leaders of Political Parties
asking them to issue whips to the MPs to attend the house atleast three days
a week. Chairman Hamid Ansari who shifted the question hour from morning
to afternoon is also drawing flak from treasury benches as well as Opposition.
MPs come to House at eleven and leave at noon. For one hour should they
receive honororium- a lump sum?
Manoj Yadav is now Staff Officer to Director Intelligence Bureau, who will manage
the top secret files and responsible to run the DIB staff. Manoj Yadav a Meerut
born Haryana cadre IPS of 1988 seniority. Manoj Yadav succeeds Harmeet Singh
who served three Directors of IB as Staff Officer. Harmeet is affectionately called
as "Hardy" is too jovial and quick to gather intelligence. Hardy has now been
appointed as Deputy Director in Delhi unit of IB.
In yet another example of the lack of governance in the Kiran Kumar regime,
it turns out that it was the sheer lack of coordination between the chief minister
and chief secretary S V Prasad that resulted in all state government employees
including Kiran himself not getting their February salaries. Since the Chief Miniser has
not been taking the advice of the Chief Secretary on several issues, the latter did not
think it fit to discuss the emergency situation arising out of the non-cooper
ation movement and the need to take steps to disburse the salaries.
And since the Chief Secretaru did not advise the Chief Minister on the issue, the latter
also did not take the matter seriously, until all hell broke loose.
Babus are of the view that Kiran needs to take a crash course in how
do deal with his officers, especially the head of the bureaucracy with
whom close coordination is vital for the functioning of the government.

AICC tells PM
ACCEPT THE DMK MINISTERS
By R Rajagopalan
Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh
on Monday soon after receiving the letters
of resignations from DMK Ministers
is expected to forward to President Prathibha Patil
for acceptance, according to highly placed
Sunday afternoon a message was communicated
from AICC to PMO about a policy decision of Congress
to snap its ties with DMK.
Once this decision was taken the
natural fall out is to accept the DMK Ministers
resignation from council of Ministers
DMK MPs have been asked to remain chill
and do not make any provocative statements
against UPA or TNCC.
Who spoiled the DMK alliance?
Insiders in DMK strongly suspect that it was
Rahul Gandhi on whose instructions Gulam Nabi Azad
abruptly ended his discussions with DMK leaders
on Friday - and rushed to Delhi. And that was the
last straw -
