#InstituteofEminence was once called World Class Institutes programme than headed by Vinay Sheel Oberoi, Secretary, Higher Education, at HRD Ministry in 2016. In 2017 Oberoi retired and in March this year guess who recruited him?

But the contribution of Vinay Sheel Oberoi, former Secretary, Higher Education, HRD Ministry (officially on Ambani's payroll) is not just devising Govt policies on #InstituteofEminence to help setup #JioInstitute recruited by Reliance; he is deep. Read on.
For the first time in Indian history our Defence Minister has allowed entry of #BigFour as decision makers in the procurement of heavy war machines - the same firms the minister used to work for & made a career of. Apart from KPMG & E&Y on board is Oberoi.

Thread on #InstituteofEminence and the #Jio drama. Stay with me till the end, if you can pls.

1. How do we define Crony Capitalism? When the govt makes rules that favour a few and gives these few an unfair (but, by virtue of these crafted rules, now legal) advantage over others.
2. What was the govt's idea behind #InstituteofEminence? To unshackle higher education from UGC's regulations and monitoring.

Why? Coz govt believes these UGC regulations are bureaucratic, cumbersome and hold higher education institutes from delivering with flexibility
3. Then, why not just wait and unshackle all of them? Why select only 5 running institutes to be free and another non-existent one to develop free of regulation?

So much fake news, outrage, moaning some from our own flock on the #JioInstitute matter. For once let us get into facts. 60 years of Congress Govt. in India & not ONE Indian University is in the list of top 200 World Rankings. Mind you India has 800 Universities as on date. (1)
So Modi Govt. without sleeping/doing nothing like other Govts. frames policy wherein Union HRD Ministry'll identify 20 Universities & grant #InstituteofEminence status. Out of 20, 10 will be public & 10 private run. #InstituteofEminence to cut redtape & give greater autonomy. (2)
Modi Govt. without appointing housemaids like Congress Govts did, prefers *eminent* "Selection Panel" to identify 20 #InstituteofEminence ! Panel - Gopalaswami Ex-CEC, Pritam Singh Ex-Director IIM, Renu Khato Pres, University of Houston, Tarun Khanna. Harvard Business School. (3)

On the day 2014 Lok Sabha Election results were announced amidst media hype & public frenzy while people took home hope in their hearts & smiles on their faces, Mukesh Ambani added almost $1 billion to his wealth in the Republic of Reliance. #JioInstitute gginews.in/kingmakers-bak…
The most important question that no one has asked in #2GScam is that how could Rothschild be adviser to GoI designing auction system & at sametime also advising Reliance & other telecom companies for same auction? And now we have #JioInstitute scam in play

Did you know a #Rothschild agent (of House of Rothschild one of the owner families of #EastIndiaCompany) sits beside #MukeshAmbani in his mansion office guiding #Reliance's "strategy & planning"? Same guy who designed auction sys for #2gScam? #JioInstitute

Yet another landmark quality initiative of @narendramodi Government. The #InstituteofEminence are selected by the Experts Panel & today we are releasing list of 6 universities - 3 each in public and private sector. #TransformingEducation #48MonthsOfTransformingIndia
@PIB_India
The #InstituteofEminence are important for the country. We have 800 univ, but not a single university in top 100 or even 200 in the world ranking. Today's decision will help achieve this.

@PIB_India
Improving ranking needs sustained planning, complete freedom & public institutes getting public funding. This is the commitment of @narendramodi govt to not to interfere but to allow institute to grow the way they should grow.
