Is India inching towards Presidential form of Government ?
Whispersinthecorridors has this indication from top bureaucratic
circles that there is an apprehension of Presidential form of
Government in the country. The logic behind such a thinking is –
introduction of lateral entry System in bureaucracy (American
system), appointment of IAS, IFS and Army officers as Ministers,
selection of top brains in different sectors, portfolio allocation to
Dr. S Jaishankar and Hardeep Puri, plan to import a third of Deputy
Secretaries from private sector, efforts to have ‘one nation, one
election’, strong PMO and last but not the least appointment of Amit
Shah as Home Minister.
Grapevine has it that once the BJP gets majority in Rajya Sabha next
year, Presidential form of Government will become a reality but will
it be viable ?
