On 26 May , NaMo assumed office
On 27 May , he appointed a committee to look into the issue of Black Money
He had no choice , since Supreme Court had given Central Government , time till 28th May to appoint a SIT ( Special Investigation Team )
NaMo did this despite his firm belief that ,
" Governments appoint committees when they want
to postpone taking unpopular / unpleasant decisions "
[ Eg : Issue of KG gas price rise ? ]
How else can you explain a 8 member committee of the Senior-most bureaucrats , without ,
> a clear mandate / terms of reference
> a firm target date
> power to take decisions , which are binding on the government
> accountability for failure to achieve its objectives
NaMo knows too well that ,
> Committees only make " Recommendations "
> Their foremost recommendation is invariably , to appoint another follow-
up committee , to examine their original recommendations !
> Committees rarely meet . When they do , they do so without a clear
agenda . Only decision that gets taken is fixing the date for the next
> Other names by which committees are well known are ,
* Come - Meet - Tea
* Procrastination Incarnate
> Committees have no power / authority , to instruct Government Officers
to act " as directed "
> When questioned in Lok Sabha , concerned Minister can get away for
inaction by saying , " Committee report is awaited "
> For the members , being on a committee is a status symbol
> For retired officers , committees are a source of some income
> A committee is a " Mutual Admiration Society " - where members never
tire of patting each other's backs
> Committee Members love to hear their own voices
> Committees are never held accountable for failing to achieve anything
concrete / tangible
But when NaMo had a choice , yesterday , he abolished 30 GoM / E-GoM
NaMo does not tolerate a culture of buck-passing
He cannot suffer nincompoops !
He is telling his Ministers ,
" Shape up or Ship out "
