What Manmohan doesn’t know…

… would fill many volumes. A sample:

Raja and friends made away with billions. Manmohan didn’t know.

Kalmadi, Sudhanshu Mittal + approximately 6,535 others made away with billions. Manmohan didn’t know.

Top scientists, engineers and science administrators made away with, surprise surprise, billions. In a ministry under the control of the Prime Minister. The eminent economist aka the good doctor still didn’t know.

Top generals, politicians got posh flats meant for war widows alloted to themselves and their relatives, drivers, cooks. Manmohan didn’t know.

Radia, Tata, MDA, Tarun Das, Vir Singhvi, Barkha Dutt and other eminent people from various walks of life were selecting Dr Singh’s cabinet. We don’t know if he knew.

A note to the PM’s spin doctors – the people would perhaps prefer that Manmohan knew about all of the above. It’s probably better to have a cunning and corrupt prime minister than one who has no idea of what members of his government are up to.


He also did not about about the ‘cash-for-votes scandal’.
Perhaps the appropriate question is what does the PM know?

@Aaditya: But then again, he is not as “guilty as he is made out to be”. Maybe he is only guilty of bad verses.

The main problem is lack of choice on the ballot. We know anyone who takes over the seat would be corrupt and ignorant.. with such a surety, we are to select the one “less corrupt and ignorant”. But really, can u know that in advance?

A constructive opposition and a Government that gives a shit – we have neither. The role of the opposition then falls on the media, with stalwarts such as Barkha Dutt in it. Not a very pretty picture, is it?
