    Let me give you an example of games polticians play with a dose of economics

    In GUJARAT as we all know the conditions of Roads are very good

    In Gujarat the CM last year announced abolishment of TOLL on state highways

    The people are happy that they wont have to pay tolls

    Now

    the central govt (specifically Modi) announced majority of state highways will be converted to National Highways in Gujrat

    again the people are ecstatic

    BUT what they dont realise is that SOON they will again go back to paying TOLLS on the same roads that were made toll free just 6 months ago

    because while state highways are toll free now these are made into national highways on which toll has to be paid


    great scheme

    Manohar Parrikar to be sworn in as Goa chief minister tomorrow

    • Parrikar will be sworn in as chief minister of Goa on Tuesday.

    "I have tendered my resignation as Defence Minister and have sent it to the PMO. I will be taking the oath (as Goa chief minister) tomorrow evening, along with the cabinet ministers," Parrikar told PTI on Monday.

    Asked how many ministers would be sworn in, Parrikar said, "The decision on the number of ministers and other issues are being currently worked out. Once the cabinet is finalised, we will inform the media."

    Governor Mridula Sinha had Goa Forward Party, Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (both of whom have three MLAs), independent Rohan Khaunte and BJP-supported independent Govind Gaude.

    Parrikar's candidature meant to bring Goa allies on board

    The saffron outfit has 13 MLAs in the 40-member Goa assembly while Congress has 17. Parrikar's return to Goa would mean a vacancy in the cabinet committee on security.

    BJP sources said his replacement had not been decided though additional charge could be given to a senior minister.

    "We have formed the government under a common minimum programme to provide stable and to continue development in the state," BJP leader Nitin Gadkari told reporters.

    During the discussion with BJP, Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP) and Goa Forward Party (GFP) put a condition that they would support the BJP-led coalition government if Parrikar was made the chief minister.

    Parrikar's candidature was seen as necessary to get allies on board and to then lead a government held up by a disparate coalition.

    Even during the campaign, BJP's Goa incharge Nitin Gadkari had suggested that Parrikar could return as CM, in what now seems to have been an acknowledgement that his successor Laxmikant Parsekar had failed to deliver the goods.

    GFP mentor and Fatorda MLA Vijay Sardesai and Khaunte, who were vocal critics of the saffron outfit, joined hands with the BJP alliance. BJP expects two more MLAs to join the coalition. MGP, which broke off the alliance with BJP on election eve over serious differences with Parsekar, returned to the BJP fold.

    Though GFP MLAs were not in favour of aligning with the BJP, the saffron party assured them that their various demands would be met. It also agreed to give cabinet berth to all three MLAs.

    BJP also assured two cabinet seats to MGP and one each to the two independents.

    India lost its most capable RM in several years. Hope his replacement is as capable.

    He has done a good job. There are plenty more to replace him, equally efficient and in some cases, better.

    This point I have been making for months now - the core team in GoI is in PMO .. every minister is under scanner. What you require is Project Management and Execution skills, Planning is area of Service Chiefs', they are capable and they are doing it.

    A streamlining of process has taken place. So his going or not will not affect, the streamlining has been achieved under his overwatch!

    Rajnath Singh is not a good choice for CM as well as HM. He has very bad record in UP. He should should be given some insignificant ministry for time pass.
    Bring in some fresh face like Raman Singh in CG, Shivraj in MP or Fadnevis in Maha. No need to bring in rotten tomatoes like Rajnath or Advani.
    I would prefer MM Joshi instead (among seniors) but seems highly unlikely given relations with Modi/Sah
