Bric a brac : Technocrat PM?

looking at congress in 2019

IMAGINE the day when India is governed by a technocrat. Of late, technocrats have expressed their willingness to be Prime Minister, President and Vice-President of the country. In the past, technocrats have served as Secretary Power, Vice-Chairman of Planning Commission, and Secretary Finance. The main founder of a Bengaluru-based technology giant planted a story about himself being considered for the post of President. One technocrat-turned-election manager of the NDA and UPA is annoyed with the BJP and the Congress for not sending him to Rajya Sabha. But aspirations never die. There is a sudden uneasiness in the Congress about the resurgent role of a technocrat who already commands considerable clout in the party. He has reportedly deputed his technical team in the data centre of the party. Rahul Gandhi has unflinching trust in his administrative capabilities. It is being surmised that a 2004-like ‘coalition’ situation is possible in 2019 and everybody may claim to be a prime ministerial candidate. Rahul Gandhi would not like to be Prime Minister in a chaotic political scenario. The Congress may, and in all probability will, have an alternate name to be proposed for the coveted post. And he naturally be a trusted and able candidate. gfiles end logo
