Please witness the horror first hand. INC official handle posted hinduphobic video in Twitter. They used image of Sri Ram, police officer lynched by M mob but attribution to H mob, Tripund with blood and associated flag of Hanuman-ji with blood and terror.

Also, Raul Vinci's election papers are under scrutiny since his degree, UK citizenship is in question.

This hasn't changed one bit even after NDA-II.
Now of course, there's the zakat foundation gaming the system to get jihadis into the services. And of course, for long there has been a steady flow of evangelical bigots in the system, mostly from NE but also from southern states like KL, TN etc.


Those are some very serious allegations. Has it always been like this for UPSC? I always thought that UPSC represented the best and brightest of the country.

the best and brighest, somewhat true. you certainly need lots of stamina and memory. in past 10 years or so the pattern has moved on to more opinion based questions from fact based ones (which used to favour the mugging up aspirants). but at the end of the day UPSC exam tests a candidate's ability to write the UPSC exam, nothing more, nothing less.
also, just because these people are smart(they have to be, in order to beat the competition) does not mean they can't be leftist, especially when the system is loaded that way. if nothing else, consider this. on an average a succesful candidate takes 2-3 attempts to clear the exam. throughout those three years he/she would devour the hindu every single day, make notes from it and commit its opinions and 'facts' to memory.
can you not imagine what 3 years of that can do to your worldview, especially when you are in your early 20's and don't know any better ? :eek:

there is some act of omission or commission by the SC that has riled the lefties and that means involvement of minorities from europe and specifically rome.

Apex groups of FFNGOs are financially backing presstitute scum like wire, scroll and quint as well as anti Modi channels in India and anti Modi print media abroad.

It looks like Pappu is in real trouble over the citizenship issue due to a complaint from an independent candidate in Amethi. EC has deferred evaluation of his nomination till next week.

his phoren educational certificates are in the name of raul vinci, Indian ones in name of rahul gandhi, he seemingly has citizenship of UK as well as italy, both of which permit dual citizenship but India automatically cancels the Indian citizenship of any Indian found with the dual citizenship of another country.

The sudden and unexected "sexual misconduct" strike on the CJI, completely out of the blue, may have a lot to do with this rapidly escalating issue and that too in an election year just as the liar is filing his nomination.

BTW, the "independent candidate" has been woken up from a very deep sleep and he has "filed" his objection.

Good tactical move.

I know some things about UK citizenship because of personal experience with having a UK born parent and associated unexpected complexities. Generally speaking:
* if you're born before 1983 and father is UK born, you're British
* If born before 1983 and mother is UK born, you can register as British
* If born after 1982, you're British if either parent is UK born

Note that the above is true even if you are born in India. None of this applies to RaGa since he has no UK born family (unless he was in fact born in UK and not in India - in which case he's UK citizen by birthright). What's more likely is that he's naturalized. This is straightforward in UK - 5 years on general visa gets you Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) - what they call permanent residence, which can then be transformed to naturalized citizenship after 1 year. The timelines may be compressed with Home Secretary. RaGa was a UK resident from mid 90s to mid 2000s. Vijay Mallya has ILR, I've read.

Separately, there's claim to Italian citizenship, which is:
* If you're born after Jan 1 1948 to an Italian parent, you have Italian citizenship.

The above is true even if the person concerned never got the passport of either country. Many people have these circumstances.

It's fine from Indian purposes as long as you don't try to claim them. Indian citizenship law states that if you have latent claim to another citizenship, there's no problem as long as you don't try to claim it (i.e. don't apply for a foreign passport). Once you do, you lose Indian citizenship. Officially claiming citizenship of another country that you're entitled to, causes loss of Indian citizenship.

I have been saying this for years. A quick reminder for those who wish to know how the Cantab system works is that the MPhil for Land Economic, Dev Studies are usually granted to sportsmen mainly rowers and rugger buggers to burnish their academic status and credentials. In addition they are granted to the offspring of middle eastern potentates whom the UK government wishes to court. In vinci's case, it was paid for by the EU/Uk government so that he is beholden to them.

AFAIK, commonwealth citizens are eligible to vote in UK under some conditions(not sure what those are). one of my friends voted while doing his post-doc there. He was certainly an Indian citizen at the time.

a born in pak, trusted and acknowledged lootyens acolyte was heading the privileges committee in the parliament and this very same matter of pappu raul vinci was referred to him in the fond and not unreasonable hope of a quick resolution some years ago.

Sad to say that the matter is still pending without any action and the concerned people were busily burnishing their rusty and corroded halos in the high hopes of snagging the gaddi in the raj bhawan but their hopes were very rudely dashed.

karma is truly a biatch, seen especially, by some, in the light of a sadhvi getting a ticket to contest against diggy and with the PM's publicly stated unconditional support.

all PSU's and research institutes like IIT's make their own selections. even DRDO conducts its own exams.

UPSC recruits only for central govt & UT. likewise state PSC's conduct exams for state govt recruitment.

Absolutely correct - "commonwealth citizens" (including Indian citizens) are eligible to vote in any UK election from local to parliament, hold public office, run for parliament etc., assuming they entered the country legally and have stayed there long enough to gain the "leave to remain".

The Brits realized that keeping this door open to rich or powerful "escapees" from their 30+ erstwhile colonies would be beneficial to them. It is a major reason why a large number of Indian crooks and fugitives with enough money will head for the UK where they enjoy unparalleled civic rights and amenities.

And this is also why I have been saying for years that India should leave the "commonwealth" immediately AND (in the event that UK does not recognize Indian withdrawal) debar Indian citizens from seeking "commonwealth citizen" benefits such as voting, running for parliament, etc. Doing this will have a huge effect: the UK will no longer be an attractive destination for crooks/frauds/other doubtful characters to escape from India.

That’s right , commonwealth citizens resident in UK can vote there . However, the fact is that this is UK law and not Indian law . In its strictest interpretation , the act of voting in a UK election by an Indian National can be interpreted as an act of relinquishment of Indian citizenship since you’re participating in an act of selecting another government .

This dichotomy also exists in citizenship matters . Let’s say you’re born in UK because your Indian parents where professionally involved there running the UK side of an Indian business . You return to India , grow up here and only ever have an Indian passport .

Pop quiz: which country’s citizen are you ?

The Nehruvian influence was known, but IIRC retiremment age is 60 for IAS. The people who are well established in the IAS should be their mid to late 40s. This would be people who were born in the late 1970s and their world views should have formed by the early 1990s.

The issue is not when people were born , the issue is with mindset behind seeking a government job. How many say they want to serve or give versus how many are attracted towards it because once you are in you are all set for life . That mindset remained unchallenged until the private sector bloomed post late 90s . Back in the day if you had to swallow your pride and take a job you had to because there was no other option however that is not the case today , for proud and able there are options on the table today more importantly there is better awareness .

Like JNU many levers of power did not/has not changed much even with change in govt twice. The old guards vigorously defend their turf. Academia/media/services have not changed much. I hear that the babus in Delhi hate the Modi govt with all their might. One reason why lateral recruitment has started is to break their monopoly. All these IPS/IAS associations pontificating on Karkare are C-system relics. The only exception is in the armed forces for the simple reason that the profession needs some degree of love and sacrifice for the nation. The babus don't need that.

The difference between wanting to serve vs. job security is always there. That said, world views within India have changed, IMO somewhat better with more recent generations.

Anyway all of this is off topic and I won’t say anymore to derail this thread. I have relatives appearing for UPSC exams and I know their world view is more like mine. Perhaps having this view will keep them from being selected.

they will have to keep at least a perfect neutral facade, if not a lean towards left in order to get through. There are statistically negligible exceptions though. one good thing that has happened is that more STEM walas have taken the dive and they tend to be more grounded in facts and logic than the airy fairy artsy types. anyway, OT.

The UPSC and associated issues need better publicity . After GE2014 there were demands here as to why GoI cannot getthigns done better / faster . Well, winning a GE even by a majority only gets you control of the lower house of legislature and the executive . It does not give control of the upper house , and more importantly , doesn’t give control of the administrative ‘steel frame’ of the country . The control of the latter is an entirely separate endeavor to be accomplished over a longer timeframe .

Well if Kannagi was in the syllabus of UPSC, there wouldn't have been Congress, BJP, Sadvi to talk about. It would have been real India.

Out of thread topic, but I recommend this. Shri Aravindan talks about Indic Social Sciences which should have been the social science subject taught in schools and in the UPSC and other central and state public service exams.

Ex-IPS Ribeiro has apparently come out with a big blast against NaMo. Shame.
India A-Bored (owned by Rediff, right?) has a headline saying "Hindu Princess?" attacking Tulsi Gabbard for "right wing extremist links". I think they have gone too far this time. Maybe time for a social media lesson.

We stand by our IPS colleagues. Hemant Karkare is a martyr and we salute him.


Been saying this for years, NaMos reluctance (Prithviraj Chauhan syndrome?) in taking on the ecosystem in his rule will not earn him any brownie points from these parasitical brown sahibs.
