INDIAN PM - FROM BEING A STATESMAN TO BEING REDUCED TO ASHES & BUTT OF JOKES

Shri manmohan Singh came into the spotlight as the Finance Minister during Narasimha Rao's PM-ship and master of India's reform movement.
He was and is still considered non-corrupt and clean politicians a rarity in Indian politics. The first 5 years of UPA1 was average but good compared with the second term which has been hit by scams and corruption issues where sky is the limit.

Today the Prime Minister is beliiteled and has become butt of Jokes like "MAUN MOHAN SINGH", PM WHO HARDLY SPEAKS, banners being put in places reading "KINDLY KEEP YOUR MOBILES IN MANMOHAN MODE" etc. etc. One question haunting every Indians mind is "is Manmohan really clean" as there is an old saying 'JO CHORI KARTA HAI WOH CHOR HAI AUR JO USKA SAATH DETA HAI WOH BHI CHOR HAI" aur utna hi gunehgaar hai jitna ek Chor hai.


If Manmohan is clean which we all believe then why does he let his reputation be sullied by all this - should he not leave the post and glide away into sunset with his wife and whatever little reputation he has intact unless the lure of office has hit him also.

Whatever India is passing through a very crucial phase and the next General Elections will throw up unknown names and leaders who will be ruling and creating further misery for India.
