Vinod Rai is making CAG a feared name by exposing the secrets behind the Blood Billionaires of India!

Unlike T. N. Seshan, when you meet Vinod Rai, the current Comptroller and Auditor General of India, he comes across as a very suave and soft-spoken bureaucrat. At the recent convocation ceremony of our graduating students, when our institute’s Director Dr. M. K. Chaudhuri challenges Vinod Rai and says that he isn't bold enough like Mr. Seshan and is not as strongly taking the government head-on as he should, he very firmly says that he is doing what he is constitutionally allowed to do. So what does Vinod Rai have to say about Pranab Mukherjee’s public snub that 90% of CAG findings are dropped in the first stage? "Yes, Mr. Mukherjee is right in some sense. CAG raises questions and it’s true that a large proportion of issues do get answered to our satisfaction in the very first stage," he says very politely, yet very firmly; and at no point in any self-doubt about whether he was doing less than he should be. Does this sound slightly lame? Perhaps. Specially because, being slightly aggressive about such issues myself, I might have personally liked Vinod Rai to stretch his constitutional limits slightly more, redefine them, and take the government head-on perhaps more loudly. But then all human beings don't have the same approach to dealing with identical issues. Our current election commissioner Dr. S. Y. Quraishi is a very soft-spoken, music loving man; but he is the man behind bringing democracy to the killing fields of Bihar, Bengal and UP! Similarly, Vinod Rai is a man who again is soft-spoken, abhorring the limelight, but doing his work with amazing sincerity, courage and commitment. Similar to what T. N. Seshan did with the Election Commission, Rai has made CAG a household name in India and a body that Indians are now looking up to with respect to exposing our government’s corrupt practices! Today, our government fears his reports like nothing else, for in these days of heightened social activism and rampant corruption, those are CAG reports that are giving the maximum ammunition to critics of the government. So what is the CAG authority doing and why is its role so important? Well, CAG is bringing to public the sham and the shame behind India’s Blood Billionaires – the saga of corruption and transfer of national wealth into private hands at the cost of the tax payers’ money and the country's national interests.

Great blog by Arindam Chaudhuri once again.....thank you very much sir for writing such informative articles.

Tarun said...

Its really useless that so many Indian's regularly feature in world's richest person when more than half the population in the country is even struggling for the basic needs of life....they should learn something from Bill Gates and do something good for the people!!!!

Annu said...

Seems all these in billionaires have earned their money in quite an easy way without much hard work,unlike other personalities of the world like Bill Gates and Warren Buffet.

Tinku Sharma said...

Really a shame to know that Indians rule the lists of billionaires in the world purely on the basis of scams, loot and the criminal transfer of national wealth into private hand.

Prem Singh Kandasi said...

Indeed a bitter truth......Thank you Mr. Chaudhuri for bringing such facts into light through your great articles!!!!!!

aaryan said...

It’s a huge shame that the country which houses the most number of poverty stricken people is also home to almost the maximum number of billionaires in the world.

Ramesh kumar said...

Everything perhaps can’t be done by getting aggressive....Some things require sincere fact-finding, auditing with honesty and patriotism at the core of the heart.......rightly said Mr. Arindam Chaudhuri.

Chandan said...

You are doing a great job Mr. Chaudhuri.....India really needs more great personalities like you.

Amit said...

So this is the true face of our so called billionaires......indeed a shame!!!!

Diptimayee Nayak said...

Really hoping that the CAG exposes names of all corrupt Indian ministers and officials who are a shame to the country.

naman said...

Just want all corrupt ministers to be punished severely so that officials and ministers in India think twice before being involved such scams.

prachi said...

Corruption must come to an end in India......people involved are hardly affected by it but common people are the ones who have to bear the shameful fact.

Shama said...

Yes....corruption needs to come to an end......only due to such people our celebrations turn sour.....great example being the grand event of CWG which had a great opening but all reports after the event was indeed a huge shame for all Indians around the world.

Harish said...

When in comes to 2G or others the CAG report becomes authentic but the moment it tries bringing facts about our ministers it becomes false.

Bodhan said...

Our ministers are only making life a hell for the poor people in the country......we need to get rid of such people as early as possible.
