    After considerable activism by CAG in revealing 2G, CWG, and other scams Congress govt seems rattled and makes moves to clip the wings a la CEC that was made a multi-member body with scope to introduce favourable stooges.

    Considering to make CAG a multi-member body: govt

    Bring in the Lokpal bill with teeth.

    Let all these agencies be independent of the Govt, no matter which Party or Coalition is in power!

    Multimember will only make these organisations like the toothless JPC.

    They are trying to clip the wings of CAG obviously, AFAIK CEC was made a multi-member body after CECs like TN Seshan took a tough stand on electoral malpractise etc.

    Earlier CEC became active under tough guys like TN Seshan and they made CEC multi-member where they put in Congress stooges like Navin Chwala, now honest person like Vinod Rai became CAG and exposed 2G, CWG, Coalgate etc and Congress wants to do the same here. Congress is indeed a cancer on this country.

    Not possible without Majority of the Parliament. Article 128 of the Indian Constitution clearly mentions that.

    Regardless of CAG being multi-member body or single post, CAG can not have say in policy formulation. There are no two ways about it.

    Mr.Rai has his way of retaliating against it and occupant Govt just want to do away with headache by hook or crook. But I believe better negotiation can contain the situation without making this noise.

    Shunglu report is debatable.

    You think they wont find support from Opposition on this ?

    Is it true that the fog horn of a ship in the fog of Newfoundland cod fish fishing area where there is a high density of boats or the ideal muezzin when there is a powercut and the loudspeaker cannot call the faithful to the prayers i.e. Narayanswamy has backtracked that he never said the Govt is keen to clip the soaring wings of the CAG?

    I am surprised that Narayanswamy was not taught by his parents to be civilised to speak softly when in public and in society.

    Why doe she howl like a Bose system on full blast and stereo-phonically?

    Is the man deaf or daft?

    The Govt never gave a statement that the CAG's wings will be clipped. It was this more loyal to the Queen than the Queen herself, Narayanswamy, who gave this idiotic statement embarrassing the Govt and the Congress Party.

    He has let down both the Govt and the Congress Party.

    Such fellows are really ruining the reputation and credibility of the Govt and the Party.
