You guys know that I am too much into constitution and its damn logic. These two things together should be able to solve a lot of our own queries about cause of corruption.
So , logically I kind of thought, that there is some major illogical lafda lurking at the way top ministers and bureaucrats work. I mean, c'mon, the constitution does not give powers to individual ministers at all. It gives power to Cabinet only; and that power to the Cabinet is also not formal at all. The formal power still has to vest with President and sarkari officers.
After a lot of fact finding, and crazy research through Transaction of business rules, appointment committee of cabinet process, persmin.nic.in , views from top civil servants I think I got close to this illogical working somewhere.
Basically, whoever amongst you answers these questions of mine and maintains logic(which is basically no round robin should be happening in the answers) gets a treat.
Q1) Which sarkari officer appoints the Secretary(Personnel, Ministry of Personnel) ?
Q2) Which sarkari officer appoints the Special Secretary & Establishment Officer (DoPT, Secretary to ACC) ?
Q3) Which sarkari officer appoints the Cabinet Secretary ?
In case, you think its the President then thats also acceptable as an answer. But ministers or a committee of ministers is not acceptable because they do not have the authority to do so due to article 77 clause 2 of the constitution.
I love this constitution. That combined with pure mathematical logic should be our cure.
And this illogical lafda , if proven such, is discovered right now at center level. I am sure such anomalies are even more prevalent at State level.
Answer this and you have delivered your first medicine for corruption.
(Btw, I have already filed an RTI for the above queries. And those guys were as lost to the logical answer as any outsider.)
