Despite the change at the helm in the ministry of human resource development, the prospects of a flip flop are remote. M.M. Pallam Raju, who replaced Kapil Sibal, made it clear at his maiden press conference that there will be no shift in the trajectory of policy change. “We will take the good work done by Mr Sibal to its logical end,” Raju remarked unequivocally.
Such clarity is welcome. Especially from a member of a cabinet which has otherwise been known to dither and often inviting the charge of a regime suffering from policy paralysis.
With less than 18 months to go for the end of the present government’s tenure, Raju has wisely decided to stay the course. The big challenge though is shepherding key items of legislation through Parliament and implementing the grandiose plan of “one-nation-one-test” for engineering schools.
