Jungle Law Here.

Justice Only Here.

All Indians Respect Supreme Court - Our PM Respects Silence and Confusion.

To tell the Supreme Court that they need not interfere in Policy Matters.

To appoint a tainted Bureaucrat as our Country's Chief in Vigilance.

To tell the people of India that he has better ministers than Pandit Jawaherlal Nehru.

To unilaterally announce that autonomy for a state in utter disarray can be considered.

To tell the people indirectly that he would allow food grains to rot.

To say that he cannot feed 37% of the people,

To keep mum on children dying of hunger and food is getting eaten by rodents and dogs.

To keep mum on the telecoms scandle involving 50,000 crore.[ Tell CBI to take care.]

To say to media that he cannot tell his minister's to shut up.[ Is he a Head Master.]

To allow tribes to walk on ropes over rivers as shown on TV to day.[ 08-09-2010.]

To allow Doctors to go on strike and let the sick dye ( 68 people ) as reported in TV in


To make the Paradise in India ' Kashmir ' a hell for the people there.

To say let's keep talking to Pakistan,when he cannot go there to talk.

To just visit a world event that's under mess the Common Wealth Games Complex and say work overtime as if he will pay extra overtime money.

To keep very,very very old politicians and dull heads as his minister and say that his cabinet is better than that of OUR BELOVED LATE PRIME MINISTER PUNDIT JAWAHAR LAL is a insult to the world respected leader.

Writing in Business Standard today, TN Ninan has this to say.“The Prime Minister has plenty of advisers, but is desperately short of doers. He has the benefit of wisdom from the National Manufacturing Competitiveness Council, the National Knowledge Commission, the
National Skill Development Council, the National Advisory Council, the Prime Minister’s Economic Advisory Council, the National Innovation Council, and the National Security Advisory Board, besides plenty of individual advisers, with and without prefixes. That’s a lot of people
giving advice, writing reports and occupying sundry “Bhavans” and multi-acre homes in Lutyens’ Delhi. But look for the doers in the system,and they are scarce. The Delhi Metro’s E Sreedharan stands out as a rare exception, perhaps alongside Nandan Nilekani. As for the
rest, the less said the better.”

South Indians do not accept him as our Prime Minister but respect him for his other qualities that none of our Members of the Parliament possess.He gets elected not as a peoples choice but as a member of Rajya Sabha a back door entrance to power.We south Indians belive that our Prime Minister is not a doer but a file pusher.

Now with Sreedharan retired, and Nilekani’s mandate at the Uniqu Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) being curtailed (the UIDAIis still to get parliamentary sanction, and is anyway mandated tocover only half the country), Manmohan Singh effectively has one doer
less and a half-doer on his payroll.

If Atal Behari Vajpayee managed to achieve something, it’s because he had some doers in his team. Among them: Arun Shourie, who managed to get disinvestment moving and the new telecom policy. And he had[Maj.Gen. (retd)] BC Khanduri, who as Surface Transport Minister managedto get the national highways programme off to a spectacular start.Even Sreedharan was a Vajpayee appointee to the Delhi Metro.

However, there is another way of seeing this. One needs to ask: why does Manmohan Singh have more advisors and non-action people on his team than doers?

The answer may be: he himself is not a doer. He is just a file-pusher.He is a bureaucrat who has risen far above his level of competence.This is why Sonia Gandhi had chosen him as PM in 2004, because he would listen to her like a bureaucrat. Give advice, and then let her
take a decision.

This is why Singh was successful under Narasimha Rao – despite being called finance minister, he was essentially a glorified finance secretary who proposed and Rao disposed
A bureaucrat will not be comfortable with anyone who is not another bureaucrat – or else the lines of authority can blur. There is no one to tell him, “Yes, Prime Minister”.

This is why Manmohan Singh never had a great equation with Pranab Mukherjee as Finance Minister. Mukherjee was always a minister, never a bureaucrat. And Singh had served under him. Their relationship was not that of boss and subordinate, but bureaucratic PM and Super
Minister. The power relationship was skewed against Singh.

For the same reason, Singh was earlier uncomfortable with P Chidambaram, too. As a proud Chettiar from Tamil Nadu, Chidambaram was always someone who could give orders and get things done. He suffers no fools. Despite outward deference, Chidambaram does not see himself as beholden to the PM for his job, nor does he think he needs the PM’s
support for anything. His current authority for reforms comes directly from Sonia Gandhi, and not the PM.

On the other hand, if you look at the people in various committees and “bhavans”, nearly all are people who would accept Manmohan Singh’s bureaucratic authority. Montek Singh Ahluwalia was one before Singh brought him to the Planning Commission. C Rangarajan was one, and headed the Reserve Bank in his time. Nandan Nilekani came to the UIDAI from the private sector, where deference to bureaucracy is a learnt virtue. Sam Pitroda at the Knowledge Commission was close to the Gandhi family in Rajiv Gandhi’s time, and S Ramadorai as the PM’s advisor on skill-building is from Tata Consultancy Services.

The last word on Singh should be given to Bibek Debroy, who summed up Manmohan Singh’s essential strength as the ability to survive all bosses, and not pushing for what he really believed in. Pointing out that UPA-1 was Left-wing in orientation, Debroy, writing in The
Economic Times some time ago, says Singh could still have pushed for reforms in public expenditure and social spending – which would not have been opposed even by Sonia Gandhi. But he did nothing.

Says Debroy: “Why did MMS choose not to push such reforms? Why, as PM, did he not insist on key individuals in key social sector portfolios during UPA-1? That demand would have also passed muster with 10, Janpath. The point is, multiple power centres or coalition compulsions
do not explain MMS not pushing for key changes. MMS opted for the path of least resistance. Good bureaucrats often do that.”

Debroy’s conclusion: “MMS will most likely be judged by history as one of India’s most ineffective Prime Ministers. But there’s another judgment on MMS that’s equally valid and important. Manmohan Singh is the best Cabinet secretary India never had.”

As this writer has noted before, Singh’s failure validates the Peter Principle, which says every man gets promoted to his level of incompetence. Manmohan Singh the super-bureaucrat failed as PM because he had been promoted once too often and reached his level of

To sack a young Minister because he was just that he was in pictures with cricket lovers.

To keep a minister involved in a telecoms scam of Rs.50,000 Crore.

To allow a minister under CBI probe as Sports Minister ( He has managed 20 years to be that and they say he knows all the ropes and robes in congress.) when he has made a mess of our prestigious world watching event in heavy,ugly and high mess.

To announce through his Joker Minister waiting to become Prime Minister that a separate state will be formed called as Telengana there by opening a national crisis.

60 years and still we do not know who is the owner of Sri.Ramjanam bhumi.

To tell the SUPREME COURT not to interfere in Policy matters.Who is the policy maker and what is a policy,can we say that he will tell its the policy of his invisible adviser and ministers to tell PAKISTAN to take KASHMIR.Will it be a policy.


Havoc in UTTARAKANDH and BADRINATH more than 50,000 people must have died and missing,who is responsible.Why a structure as old as 5,000 years stood which was built with our the Amitabh Bachan's advertised cement or TATA Steel.How were the roads which were built close to river beds washed away completely.Why there was no telecommunication system restored by the army was our army's communication in warfare unacceptable to people or why were they not used to communicate by the people stranded to their kith and kin.Who built the Roads in such high risk zones.Everything gets shadowed by more such mega events and there are places waiting with invitations for disasters to come.

Who is Our Prime Minister or Who was our Prime Minister.

Here's an anecdotal reference.

A former Jt. Secy. in the Ministry of Finance, who served for 13 years
with Man Mohan Singh in the Finance Ministry then, openly and plainly stated at a
Forum, about 2 years ago, that Man Mohan Singh :

(A) Never took a decision during the tenure at the Finance Ministry as a 'Babu'.( IAS officer's who can only hold such posts are called as "BABU'S.)

(B) If forced to take a decision, he made sure that he ALWAYS fired
the gun from someone Else's shoulder.

As this former Jt. Secy stated : 'MMS is / was a


The Prime Minister is Head of INDIA ( Head of our Family of Indians )
