The bigger issue is also the lack of governance at state level which have got used to central funding and money and assistance for crisis management. We really need some sort of revamp of the whole decision making structure. I have been hearing multiple accounts of how within moments of directive, admin officials are setting up infra. Qn is why did they wait, and that is the issue - the lack of empowerment and accountability at the bureaucratic level which is our real issue. If you need politicians to tell you common sensical things, and their approval for everything, it means the system is an issue.
I have seen this too many times to mistake it for anything else.
These guys have had their darbari privileges curtailed, money making opportunities have evaporated, there is no institutional "gossip" to sustain them, keep their marketable influence intact and their patronage possibilities are currently nonexistent unless they want the ED to come calling.
They have all told their bosses with the utmost sincerity at their crooked command and with the straightest of faces, used only when barefacedly lying, to assure them of their utmost cooperation and this dreaded phrase is trotted out without fail: "sir, we are all with you and we will do exactly as you say"
which means that unless they get directions, every single minute of every day, they will sit back and "wait for aadesh from the mantri or the boss".
and when asked why did you not do this, they will innocently say "sir, we did not get any aadesh from you so we were waiting" Please tell us what to do now
each and every one of these @h0!e$ knows very well how to play the game and how to stay "blameless" because, that is what their mussoorie training is all about
this is what is happening with the congi pasand parivaari and darbaari babooze. The others will simply not rock the boat because of the dreaded "annual confidential report" syndrome and the threat of transfer to some irrelevant position.
In the meantime, they are all waiting it out for the BJP storm to pass and the benign and generous eyetalian sun to shine on them once again
BTW, health, as well as, disaster management are both stage subjects and every babooze knows it well, as do indeed, the state govts
