Since 2008, when Vinod Rai was appointed the head of CAG, the auditors have gone into overdrive busting really big scams in India. So much so that it resulted in the whole Anna Hazare farce, which if nothing else managed to wake up a lot of our citizens. The number of RTI activists have also gone up. More politicians are on the mat now that ever before. I attribute a lot of this momentum to the audacity of the CAG to not bend to the tune of the government and courageously staying independent. The CAG has also remained politically neutral , admonishing and praising both incumbent and oppositions wherever applicable. They have also highlighted issues in defense procurement and have not spared the armed forces either. Kudos to Vinod Rai.
