Whispers finds place in books creating political turmoil  

As a matter of proud for all our surfers, who have faith in what we publish, finds place in the two most talked about books these days - The Accidental Prime Minister by Sanjaya Baru & Crusader or Conspirator ? of PC Parakh.

The Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh's former Media Adviser Sanjay Baru while narrating about the events that occurred during the run-up to his reappointment (which finally did not come) in June 2009 has mentioned in his book
-The Accidental Prime Minister - about whispersinthecorridors ( on Pg. 267) saying - "A few days later reported that I would be returning to the PMO".

Similarly, former Coal Secretary PC Parakh has in his book 'Crusader or Conspirator ?' , on Pg 142, mentioned about a report which appeared in the on March 2, 2005. The report is related to repatriation of Parakh to his parent Andhra Pradesh cadre when the then Coal Secretary, according to him, was not getting full political support of his ministers and the PM was also finding himself helpless in coming to the rescue of the 1969 batch IAS officer because he (Dr. Manmohan Singh) required the support of the said ministers to run his coalition government.

This speaks about the credibility that whispersinthecorridors has earned over a period of time and how much authentic its reports are in the opinion of the 'decision makers' of the country.

Too much mess in CGHS

Too much mess had been created in CGHS for pensioners. Lok Adalats should be formed and their sittings be arranged on Saturdays and Sundays. Issues like availability of whole-life new Plastic Cards and pending bills for reimbursement may be resolved on the spot.

Rakesh Kumar

Opportunist bureaucrats

Those bureaucrats are opportunist if they have courage & conviction, they must speak while in the service. At the most what would happen they will be shifted? This is nothing short of betrayal. Like one who remember his wrong date of birth while at fag end?

S S Singh

Kejriwal role to be nil

Whether BJP (Modi in reality) crosses 260 mark or not will be known only on 16th May. However, one thing is clear. Kejriwal does not think he will be having any role in the formation of new Government or in running it. Otherwise he would not have said that reservation should be given to one generation only.

Bishan Sharma

Good suggestion

The suggestion to use the services of unemployed people for conduct of elections is not only good in the sense it will provide some financial relief to the person concerned but will also reduce the burden of exchequer wherein the Government has to play some allowance and also huge amounts of traveling allowance to the government servant. The recent elections have made a serious dent into the DTE budget of various Ministries/Departments. But the Ministry of Finance is behaving like a moot spectator in terms of providing assistance. Ministry of Finance can give money for MNREGA, NHRM, JNRUM, Food Subsidy etc. wherein a lot of money is going down the drain. But they are not ready provide funds for the medical bills of the Government employees.

Full bench orders for disclosure of third party vigilance file notings

Copy of the note sheets and correspondence pages of a vigilance file of the third party were denied by the PIO under section 8(1)(h). The PIO informed that the noting is based on investigation reports received from CBI, an organisation now exempt under section 24 of the RTI Act. The PIO also argued that investigation has been initiated under Prevention of Corruption Act, which is a specific enactment as opposed to the RTI Act which is a general Act. The appellant contended that it is not apparent as to how disclosure of information would impede investigation. The third party stated that he has no objection if the information sought by the Appellant is provided. The matter was referred to the full bench of CIC which directed to disclose the information after applying severability.


Disclosure of vigilance matters has been a matter of debate. Unless the investigation is impeded by disclosure, the same cannot be denied under section 8(1)(h). Neither the name / designation of the person recording the noting is liable to be disclosed nor is any other indication in the correspondence which may reveal reveal the identity of the author of the noting.
