Now for some real news

Supriya Sahu, IAS, has been recommended by the Prasar Bharati Board as the next DG Doordarshan. She will take charge after approval from the ACC. But in the meantime, there seems to be a lot of talk over her selection for the coveted job in the nearly dead organisation. A large chunk of professionals refuse to accept her credentials as fit to lead a huge force of techno-programme cadre. The Chairman of the Board too was heard to be fuming over the coup. He even had a showdown with the CEO. Sources reveal that to bring Doordarshan back on rails, he was set to promote a professional culture by inducting internal candidates. It is also learnt that he had sounded both the Ministers, who gave a nod to his scheme of things. In such a situation, the unexpected somersault in the guise of Sahu’s appointment has raised many an eyebrow. The haste to push the case of the lady officer as the lone candidate is also being frowned upon. Is a group of bureaucrats apprehending inconvenient times ahead, behind this move? Are these bureaucrats trying to hide something that is already known to others!
