By the Way

By the way : Secret PMO language

Secret-PMO-languageEVERY Kingdom had its own language and style of working developed over centuries. Sometimes palace courtiers spoke in sign language and the message was passed on. This was to keep a check on intrigues. Our Prime Minister’s Office is following this century old dictum. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is not very well conversant with English language. He is fluent in Hindi but he is more comfortable in Gujarati. He first reads Gujarati newspapers in the morning. Insiders reveal that whenever any important issue is discussed, which is not supposed to be known to others in the PMO at that point of time, the top-ranking officials, who hails from the Gujarat cadre, speak in Gujarati. Modi took extra precaution when the decision of demonetisation was being taken. He and his close officials, including one important secretary of the concerning ministry, opted to talk in Gujarati. Sources disclosed that even otherwise the top-ranking Gujarati cadre officials prefer to speak in Gujarati. So, in the PMO when the officials started talking in Guajarati only, it is an indication that an important issue is being discussed and a decision is being taken on it. gfiles end logo
