'To compare bureaucrats to those in armed forces is laughable'

‘Service in the Armed Forces can’t be compared to government service. If that basic premise is not accepted, then there’s no scope for any debate on OROP’ ‘No one joins the Armed Forces on a contract. They join to serve. Armed Forces attract those who want to serve, not based on financial terms and contracts’ Rajya Sabha MP Rajeev Chandrasekhar, a passionate advocate of OROP, speaks to Sudhir Bisht.   Ex-servicemen and their families continue their ...

'OROP for jawans is justified. Not so much for officers'

'It is important to make a clear distinction between the officers and jawans. The officers retire at 54 and with two extensions can go up to 58 years before they go home. A jawan on the other hand retires at 38. Therefore, to portray a picture that all army men retire young is wrong,' says Sudhir Bisht. My heart is with the soldiers and I think the National Democratic Alliance is doing itself a great disservice by delaying the implementation of One Rank, One Pension. OROP has been cleared by ...

If Modi isn't mingling with Muslims, it is his wish...

'... as long as he doesn't stop me from mingling with my Muslim friends.' 'Tolerance isn't about making a show of your respect for another man's religion. Tolerance is about not interfering in other people's affairs as long as it doesn't infringe your own rights as an individual,' says Sudhir Bisht. President Pranab Mukherjee hosted an iftar party at Rashtrapati Bhavan on July 15, and it was known that Prime Minister Narendra Modi would not be able to attend, since he had a pre-scheduled ...

A peek into Kejriwal's brilliant stealth tactics

I admire Kejriwal’s intelligence but pity the fact that he had to use all the ingenuity and scheming to achieve his revenue enhancement goal, says Sudhir Bisht. On the last day of June 2015, the Delhi Assembly passed an amendment to Value Added Tax Bill to increase the cap of VAT rate from 20 per cent to 30 per cent on several items, including petroleum products. This was vehemently and should I say physically opposed by the Bharatiya Janata Party leader Vijender Gupta, who enjoys the ...
