Reforms are good Competition and efficiency are good Growth is goodbecause it leads to trickle-downthough this doesn’t negate the need for direct government intervention through anti-poverty

too For the first time since 1991we see this consensus breaking down Beyond a pointone can’t differentiate between the Congress Party and UPA-II government Congress has turned increasingly lefthas incorporated the Left through NAC and NGOs and since government is unable to resist this swingthe distinction between party and government is irrelevant Whether Congress is attempting to do this for narrow political dividends is also beside the point We have major state elections coming up this year and in 2011 And perhaps Central elections will also be brought forward to before 2014 But the point is this Once Congress accepts itself as a party of government and government moves beyond the present state of complete non-actionis there an economic blueprint one has in mind In discussions of

Singh Manral Alok Singh | New Delhi | Published: May 9 2016 2:47 am A fire outbreak at the National Museum of Natural History in April gutted its collection of exhibits Related News Always on their toes given the nature of their work the city’s fire department has been extremely busy this summer An unprecedented rise in the number of fires have included those at high-rises bushfires some caused by cylinder explosions and one that raged at the National Museum of Natural History There has been a nearly 50 per cent rise in the number of calls to the Delhi Fire Services this summer Dr G C Misra Director Delhi Fire Services the number of all fire calls this April went up alarmingly “We had received 80 to 90 calls per day last April but this year the fire department received at least 110 calls per day” Since April 1 the department has received 4290 calls Firefighters are dealing with this surge in calls even as the department grapples with shortage of manpower and infrastructure lacunae The pressure of not having the sanctioned manpower and perfect tools is not new but it has gone up to new and uncomfortable levels now say insiders And this is not a job where you can afford to cut corners they add Share This Article Related Article Among the many fires in April one that exposed the shortcomings of the department most was the blaze that engulfed the National Museum of Natural History and gutted its collection of exhibits Police personnel who reached the museum soon after the fire broke out on the sixth floor of the building say they felt helpless seeing the blaze spread from floor to floor even though firefighters tried hard to douse it More and more firefighters and equipment kept coming in recalls a police officer It took 170 firefighters almost four hours to douse the fire Such damage does little to counter public perception that the fire department’s best efforts are not enough A recent draft report of the Comptroller of Auditor General of India (CAG) has found several shortcomings including staff shortage in the functioning of Delhi Fire Services This is not the first time CAG has pointed this out It had noted this in its reports in 2001 2004 and 2010 In the draft report CAG has noted 4261 per cent overall shortage of staff and 4337 per cent shortage in operational staff The CAG has also noted shortage of upgraded equipment and lack of refresher course or specialised training for staff According to an internal audit report for 2009 Delhi Fire Services had a sanctioned staff strength of 3028 of which 1145 posts were vacant The CAG draft report notes the department has 3619 sanctioned posts of which 1542 are vacant Fire department chief Misra said “At present we have over 40 per cent staff shortage With such a high manpower shortage our efficiency has suffered The process for induction of fire department staff is very long and we don’t get professional drivers with heavy vehicle licences” There are problems on the expansion front too The Planning Commission had envisaged in 2007 that Delhi needs 70 fire stations The city had 53 fire stations then At the end of 2015 this went up to only 58 There are water sourcing issues as well In 1999 Delhi Fire Services had decided to have tube wells at all fire stations The CAG report tells a different story “Seventeen fire stations have no bore wells in nine stations the wells are non-functional and 17 other stations are operating without underground water tanks Of the 205 pumping units required to tackle fire incidents for a population of 16788 lakh only 160 such units are available and out of these as many as 31 are not in working condition” the CAG notes in its draft report Of the six skylifts with the Delhi Fire Services four were out of order and all six turn-table ladders were found non-functional during a CAG inspection “The two super snorkels are lying defunct” according to the draft report Insiders also point to another inadequacy The department has six rescue vehicles and one ambulance and this is not enough they say Key shortcomings noted by CAG in draft report 1 Delhi Fire Services was not adequately equipped as neither regular inspections of the fire stations were being carried out nor had any group been appointed to recommend ways and means for improving the fire service Delhi has 300-ft high-rises but the department just had one skylift to reach 200-ft high structures 2 In fire incidents within 1 km distance response time was up to 9 mins and in other cases between 5 and 35 mins In only 42 per cent cases the response time was within 5 mins Only 205 mobile radio sets were available for 299 firefighting vehicles Out of five repeater sets only two were functional Equipment was old and not giving required performance GIS/GPS was yet to be installed in the fire vehicles 3 As of March 2015 out of Rs 9 lakh received the Fire Safety Management Academy could utilise only Rs 035 lakh 4?Gujarat?
