And, mostly appearing to both kowtow to RSS demands and earn its displeasure. On 30th October delegates from 11 RSS-affiliated outfits spent six hours with Union HRD minister Smriti Irani her sixth meeting with RSS leaders in six months All this prompting columnist and Modi sympathiser Tavleen Singh to tweet “The RSS does not know enough about Indian history to be allowed by the HRD to rewrite it Bigotry cannot pass for history” And yet the Indian Express reported soon after that the RSS is peeved about Irani’s “indecisiveness” and upset about how she does “not show enthusiasm” for the names it has proposed for key posts None of which seemed to help Irani when she was accused of being an “RSS mascot” during the row over replacing German with Sanskrit in Kendriya Vidyalayas A policy change Irani sort-of rolled back and sort-of defended — position that earned her no fans on either side of the debate At least Murli Manohar Joshi had a clear philosophy: ‘Indianise’ education and purge it of ‘Leftist bias’ Joshi at least knew where he stood even if it was on losing ground Irani comes instead as India Today as both appeasing and indecisive neither of which helps her stake a position from which she can fight her battles Sometimes you just cannot be both saas and bahu You have to pick your role Competence: Smriti is the Anti-Modi When it comes to image management beyond the cosmetics of appearance Smriti Irani keeps falling flat on her face Campaigning for Irani in Amethi Candidate Modi sold his “chhoti bahen" as a miracle-worker who would rescue the Rahul Gandhi constituency from decades of neglect He made clear to the audience: A vote for Smriti was a vote for Modi’s model of governance It is ironic therefore that much of Irani’s troubles appear to spring from her inability to duplicate Modi’s leadership skills The Prime Minister famously relies on his babus not his ministers His signature style of governance entails cultivating a coterie of knowledgeable and talented administrators who are entrusted with the task of executing his vision A style that was writ large over his first meeting with the PMO officials: "You don’t have to fear (while doing your job) . I am available (to protect you)" sources quoted the PM as saying… Pointing out that he was a "team player" Modi asked the secretaries to build their teams and lead from the front by focussing on issues of governance Referring to demoralization in the bureaucracy sources said the PM unequivocally told the officials that their "10-year fatigue will end . now you will enjoy working . you all are talented people" In stark contrast his HRD minister has developed a “strained relationship” with her bureaucracy as India Today reports in its cover story: Shastri Bhawan where her ministry is located has heard several tales of the tongue lashing she has given bureaucrats There are instances of her ticking off senior bureaucrats in full board meetings in ways that made others in the room squirm She is said to have told a top official at a meeting that even she with her little education had more brains than him At another meeting she is said to have accused the top functionary of selling out the sovereignty of the country much to the embarrassment of the others present A woman joint secretary is said to have sought voluntary repatriation after being pulled up by the minister The ouster of the head of a significant academic body was preceded with an exchange at a meeting where Irani silenced the official by declaring "I am the Council" That’s the polar opposite of Modi’s “I’m a team player” Now even a Steve Jobs was infamous for his people management skills but Irani who has little expertise or power base should have prioritised cultivating a circle of trusted and talented advisers – more so given a portfolio as dauntingly complex as education Surely that’s the first rule of competence whether you’re a Harvard MBA a twelfth class pass or a former chai-walah Reputation: Image management by outrage There is probably no minister in the Modi cabinet other than the PM himself who should understand the power of image management better than Smriti Irani “Her transformation into the iconic bahu Tulsi Virani taught her the importance of image And not for a moment has she let go of it” write Veena Sandhu and Kavita Chowdhury in Business Standard Irani always turns up in Parliament in “ghar ghari ki rani Tulsi Virani” regalia with the prominent red bindi the sindoor in her hair and the sari held in place with the lotus brooch However when it comes to image management beyond the cosmetics of appearance Smriti Irani keeps falling flat on her face As minister Irani tells India Today she would rather “bring reforms silently" But she does not follow her own advice When the Christmas story broke she adopted a tone of shrill outrage shooting off tweet after tweet accusing TOI of irresponsible journalism After the Indian Express and Hindu did their own investigations and the actual HRD circulars surfaced directed not just at Navodaya schools but even IIMs and IITs Irani was caught with egg on her face Either she had no clue about her own ministry’s directives or she was just trying to brazen it out with high dudgeon — which is hardly an effective strategy since now she is suspected of lying Smriti Irani does not want to be the Grinch Who Stole Christmas But she also wants to be the minister who leaves her mark by bringing Good Governance Day to schools The two goals are not antithetical But this was a singularly ham-handed way to go about it especially in the middle of a conversion row “For the life of me I can’t understand why people are not understanding what I am saying” she protested during the Sanskrit brouhaha Perhaps it’s because she just sounds like someone flailing for direction switching from belligerence to backtrack at the drop of a tweet The problem with Smriti Irani is not that she is “Class 12 pass” The problem is that she has proven to be an incompetent minister thus proving the Kishwars of the world exactly right And she has only herself to blame there is little evidence of Irani’s enlightened views on education, whose main objectives this season are to win the Champions League and to regain the French league title his players relinquished to Monaco last season.
