Where are the jobs going to come from?'Telangana, Andhra Pradesh and ofcourse every State in India should take from this wise suggestion by Dr.Milan Vaishnav given to the Narendra Modi government in a recent interview titled 'Where are the jobs going to come from?'…“In terms of the three things government needs to handle urgently, I would put administrative reform at the top. This is a perennial backburner issue because politicians simply do not perceive the impact on votes. Everyone in government knows that the Indian bureaucracy circa 2015 is not equipped to handle the challenges of India's democracy, economy, and society circa 2015—but yet it continues to tinker at the margins.There is no need to reinvent the wheel here; there are many good ideas waiting to be taken off the shelf, such as those produced by the Second Administrative Reforms Commission.They were announced with great fanfare by the previous government and then never heard from again. This government has an opportunity to revive elements of this blueprint and then force the Congress to oppose ideas its own leaders came up with.”(An associate with the South Asia Progamme at the international think-tank Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Washington, DC, Dr Milan Vaishnav's research focuses on corruption, governance, state capacity, distributive politics, and electoral behaviour in India.)It is relevant here to mention that Loksatta Jayaprakash Narayan played key role in the making of reforms recommended by the Second Administrative Reforms Commission.
