1482 #UrbanCooperativeBanks&58 multi State Co-op Banks,to come under #RBI control now💪

#PMCBank crisis was partly due to multi-tier regulation,as seen below

Direct Supervision by RBI is a bold move-@narendramodi govt buries yet another jaded,#NehruvianRelic that fed corruption
Cooperative banks came partially under RBI in 1966 but faced problem of multiple regulation

Registrar of Cooperative Societies(RCS)is in control of management elections& administrative issues

Today's #CabinetApproval to bring #CooperativeBanks under #RBI is,therefore historic💪
Despite changes in 1966,in spirit,most #CooperativeBanks, operated as per Cooperative SocietiesAct,1955

#BankNationalisation in 1969,by #IndiraGandhi,compounded the banking-bureaucracy-politico,nexus

It took a @narendramodi,to finally rid #CooperativeBanks,from greedy #Babudom

45 years since the Emergency: How the electoral practices case against Indira Gandhi progressed in the courts - writes Namit Saxena

@namitsaxena2007 #indiragandhi…
The Allahabad High Court held then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi to be guilty of corrupt electoral practices and disqualified her from contesting elections for 6 years.
By this time, overturning of executive decisions by the judiciary at various intervals had orchestrated a struggle on the issue of custodianship/guardianship of the Constitution. Indira Gandhi was trying hard to craft a ‘committed judiciary’ of judges favouring the government.

such accolades sicken me. flip side of the bhakts. this day only marks the endgame of the betrayal of democracy that begins with her selection, promotion & patronage of bhinderanwale. the culmination is an act of mass murder by her party, guided by her son.

'Indira’s son, Sanjay, “knowing how extra-constitutional matters worked,” suggested a “sant” be put up to challenge the Akali Dal...Kamal Nath said, “Bhindranwale, strong in tone and tenor, seemed to fit the bill. We would give him money off and on...'…
'“Lalit Suri of Lalit Hotels...dropped by. He was the errand boy for Rajiv Gandhi ... He came to me in the ministry and said, ‘Clearance has been given by Arun Nehru for the killings in Delhi and the killings have started. '…

The rot afflicting PSBs had started in 1976 when the #SBIAct was amended to authorise the Govt to remove the SBI Chairman w/o citing any reason.

Prior to this, chairman couldn't be removed before completion of his term, w/o giving "sufficient ground".
This amendment to SBI Act is commonly known in banking circles as #theTalwarAmendment as it's sole purpose at that time was to remove #RKTalwar, the most illustrious chairman of #SBI, who refused to bow to a diktat of #SanjayGandhi, the most powerful politician at the time.
The complete story behind this amendment is given in a booklet "R K Talwar: Values in Leadership" by #NVaghul, the illustrious chairman of #ICICIBank, who started his career in SBI and had been mentored by none other than Talwar himself. The story briefly goes as under.

Today, 50 years ago, PM #IndiraGandhi, also India's first woman Finance Minister, nationalized 14 of the country's largest private banks.

Journalist Inder Malhotra wrote of that momentous day in 1969: "[Many] who had never seen the interior of a bank...danced in the streets."
This was K Shankar Pillai's cartoon of #IndiraGandhi the week after #BankNationalization. Indira holds in her hands the keys to the 14 nationalized banks along with the FM's briefcase.
To be sure, there was strident opposition to #BankNationalization, largely from within the PM's own party, the @INCIndia, and the liberal Swatantra Party. But as these other cartoons by Shankar reveal, #IndiraGandhi pressed on with skill and determination.

🇮🇳 #Inde : investi aujourd'hui pour son deuxième mandat, @narendramodi souhaite mettre en place des réformes économiques et sociales qui feraient de lui le Reagan indien.…
🇮🇳 Cette focalisation sur les enjeux économiques et sociaux aux dépends des enjeux identitaires, si elle se confirme dans les mois à venir, pourrait créer des tensions au sein de la vaste famille des nationalistes hindous, le #SanghParivar. A suivre donc.
🇮🇳 Le nouveau cabinet de @narendramodi compte 58 membres. L'entrée la plus importante est celle de l'ancien dirigeant du @BJP4India @AmitShah au poste de ministre de l'Intérieur. Cet organisateur de génie a largement contribué aux victoires de #Modi.…

९ जून १९६४, स्वतंत्र भारत को बड़े भाग्य से देश को एक लाल मिला, द्वितीय प्रधान मंत्री के रूप म, जिसका नाम था लाल बहादुर शास्त्री!
११ जनवरी १९९६, को वह प्रधान मंत्री की कुर्सी ही क्या, दुनिया छोड़ गया.. क्यूँ और कैसे??
क्षमा कीजिए, *११ जनवरी १९६६🙏🏻

Two weeks apart, 2 unnatural deaths happened outside India, #LalBahadurShastri & Dr. #HomiBhabha in January 1966??

Who was responsible, who would benifit from their death, who became 🇮🇳’s PM after Shastri ji?

#IndiraGandhi of #CongressFraudParty ?

#Harsimrat_Jhoothi ਸਚ ਖੰਡਿ ਵਸੈ ਨਿਰੰਕਾਰੁ ॥ Bibi Badal- You have exposed yourself today by siding with Khalistani Militants. Go and ask your father-in law whom they gave safe haven inside the Golden Temple-- innocent people or deadly Khalistani Militants led by Bhindrawale..
#Harsimrat_Jhoothi Bibi Badal- let me explain you the dark history of Punjab in which your family played a role. In October 1983, a gory holocaust of Hindus by Bhindranwale’s militant brigade forced #IndiraGandhi to take immediate steps. She put the state under President’s Rule.
#Harsimrat_Jhoothi Bibi Badal, Many Hindu temples were desecrated and innocent Hindus and Sikhs were killed in cold blood by Khalistani Militants. It was obvious that the terrorists' ranks had been infiltrated by Pakistani agents, smugglers, Naxalites and dacoits.

I am currently reading this wonderful book by @Koenraad_Elst which gives amazing insight abt the defence of Godse and exposes the blunders commited by Gandhi (I refuse to use Mahatma), have decided that will be tweeting extracts from the same as I go along. #KnowYourLegacy
Untill now almost all the works published on Gandhi have been hagiographies with none really questioning Gandhi on some hard facts and hence this book comes as something fresh.. #KnowYourLegacy @muglikar_ @indiantweeter @TrueIndology
This book also provides an opportunity for the next gen to learn abt the mistakes commited during the freedom struggle and more importantly also abt the fact that it was not a single person or party which helped us attain independence #KnowYourLegacy @muglikar_ @TrueIndology

The most important question that no one has asked in the #2GScam is that how could #Rothschild be adviser to GoI designing auction system & at the same time also be advising Reliance & other telecom companies for the same auction. #2GScamVerdict <Thread>…
Let’s say GoI wants to utilise its spectrum resources (which is a national resource belonging to people of India) for development purposes. Ideally this is done by state owned telecommunications companies for various reasons - major being that of national security. #2GScamVerdict
Now if state telco lacks expertise or funding it is sourced from private sector. Since Liberalisation & Privatisation GOI chose to auction spectrum whereby Govt sold licences to transmit signals over specific bands & assigned scarce spectrum resources to private/foreign players.
