But with Shah as boss there is less scope for interventions. At times, when Doval issues instructions to the IB chief or other agency he, he is informed that they have to first check with Shah. For instance, earlier he occupied just one floor of Sardar Patel Bhawan as his personal office.
Now Doval, raised to the rank of Cabinet minister, has taken over most of the building for the National Security Council NSC Secretariat, which has expanded noticeably. There are even three deputy NSAs and the building entrance has got a facelift. Most importantly, the rules of business were re-framed this month so that the NSC can generate Cabinet notes and act like a full government department.
Defence Minister Rajnath Singh sent word to the Indian ambassador in France that he wanted a pandit to be present when he landed in Bordeaux for the formal ceremony of officially handing over the first of the 36 Rafale jets manufactured for the Indian Air Force. The French authorities, alerted that a puja would be performed on the runway, made discrete inquiries as to what the procedure entailed.
At the Dassault Aviation Centre, Rajnath, carried out the rituals of a shastra puja, the ceremony for Nsa India morning weapons. He offered a coconut and flowers, while a lemon was placed under the aircraft wheel. The French witnessing the ceremony, including the Minister for Armed Forces, top army brass and senior officials of Dassault, heaved a sigh of relief. They had been informed that traditionally Indians inscribe a swastika during a puja.
The swastika is an unhappy symbol for France since it evokes memories of Nazi occupation of the country during World War II. His last job in fact was as press secretary to the President. The External Publicity Division is possessive about its turf, even if its efforts for positive coverage on Kashmir in the foreign press have fallen rather short. The cricket bosses who lost control of the most lucrative sport in the country for over three years had announced to all and sundry that they would settle scores by investigating some of the financial transactions of the CoA.
Forewarned, the Supreme Court, while permitting the elected office-bearers to take charge, scuttled attempts for a potential witch-hunt against predecessors by inserting two safeguard clauses. No proceedings against the CoA members is possible without court clearance and legal expenses will be borne by the BCCI. But the Bhavan, located on the prestigious Akbar Road, still awaits a resident cook.
It is not easy to persuade a skilled Gujarati cook to move to Delhi, since cooks find the cost of living much cheaper in their home state and they prefer the familiar surroundings. The Gujarat authorities put out tenders for an agency to run the kitchen. The tender has finally been awarded, now everyone is waiting for the cook.
