By the Way

Pawn or puppet

Anil Tyagi

Pawn-or-puppetTHIS is an old story but it indicates the character of the Swayam Sewaks who are working in the RSS. There was a strategy in the RSS in 2013-14 to contact senior civil servants who were against the Congress regime or chief ministers. Some top-ranking RSS supporters were deputed for the covert operation. One was a Professor of Economics. He cultivated friendship with an IAS officer who was disenchanted with a Congress Chief Minister. A meeting was fixed with the then Chief Minister of Gujarat Narendra Modi. The meeting lasted for one hour. Arun Jaitley also met the officer. Over the days, the interaction continued. Then the BJP came to power. Narendra Modi became Prime Minister and Arun Jaitley Finance Minister. The simple, hardworking and honest officer was in touch with the PMO; he was assured an important assignment by the powers that be but nothing materialised. National Security Advisor Ajit Doval also spoke to the officer many times. But after the BJP came to power, the Professor’s lifestyle turned prosperous and his house got a makeover. The Professor’s son got a job with handsome salary with a leading builder of North India. Now the Professor preaches to the officer, what is the fun of fighting against builders; businessmen have to do many things to excel. So what if he was just a pawn! gfiles end logo
