Lately Manmohan Singh's government is getting active in getting things done. Allowing FDI in retail and aviation is good example and sent good signal to foreign and domestic investers. Now if the government gives in the supreme court's pressure in dismantling coal privatization will have opposite effect. If the court and the opposition have their ways then what would be guarantee that the new retail policy will be in force in future? Walmarts need assurance that their invesment won't be confiscated at the whim of courts.
Coal has blackened so many faces for ever ,never to be washed/cleaned. With the notices served by the SC to the governmen in the case- Coalgate -, examination of CAG`s report by PAC appears now being side lined. The matter has gone sub-judice,hence commenting anything byany one may be treated as -contempt of court. To be taken care of.
With SC`s notice to the Govt. in the matter- Coalgate scam- now examination by PAC appears now being sidelined . The Ho`ble Appex court will examine the case thoroghly and pronounce judgement. The case now gone sub-judice nothing can be commented by anyone else the same may be treated as - Contempt of Court.
Let us now wait and watch. The PIL being examined covers the complete issues needing thorough examination by an independent authority which will be the Appex court.
Hon. SC should have asked the gov if there were any guidelines available then while allotting coal blocks, instead?
At last the SC is as they say "seized of the matter". Short of attributing collusion between CAG and SC, no more villification is possible. Of course 8 weeks is a bit too long, but letting the sarkar have a long rope might be just the thing under the circumstances.Let us see the sarkartry and wriggle out, by fronting various secretaries/ lower order functionaries for the malfunction. Where the 2G went Coalgate will follow.Chacko Committee as well as MM Joshi Committee can twiddle their thumbs .There would be no stopping our 'news debating societies' on the idiot box from putting their various spins on the issues involved. With nill effect on the sinking TRPs.Better stick to newspapaers for the real stories/implications.The same old bunch will be on parade on the Telly.
