Pura System Hi Kharab Hai, isn’t it Mr. Manmohan Singh?

August 4, 2011

PM Manmohan Singh is not one for populist fervour. He does not raise his voice, and the street demands theatre. The dynamic of power within UPA-II is not controlled by the taut line between the Cong and its allies. The Congress has, effectively, reduced its allies to impotence. Singh has conceded Croatia and taken over Yugoslavia. It’s greatest skills were exercised not in times of war but in the territorial negotiations that followed. Singh’s old guru Narasimha Rao must be smiling from wherever god has placed him in the firmament. As UPA-II enters the decisive year of its term, for 2012 will determine whether it can revive or must perish, much will depend on whether its agenda is determined by the governance of politics or the politics of governance.
