Lucky Panel

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

This is one lucky com­mit­tee. An ex­pert com­mit­tee formed by Fi­nance Min­is­ter P. Chi­dambaram in May to sug­gest a new in­dex for mea­sur­ing back­ward states has proved sur­pris­ingly lucky for its mem­bers. Raghu­ram Ra­jan has be­come gover­nor of the Re­serve Bank of In­dia, Na­jeeb Jung has moved on from vice- chan­cel­lor of Jamia Mil­lia Is­lamia to lieu­tenant gover­nor of Delhi. Now the re­main­ing four mem­bers are wait­ing for their turn. Not sur­pris­ingly, though the com­mit­tee was to sub­mit its re­port to the Govern­ment within two months, it is yet to do so.
