Choice of ministers

It is certainly the prerogative of the prime minister to choose his cabinet colleagues. Manmohan Singh can select any person as the Finance Minister and the Home Minister. However to make a person against whom there is a spate of charges of impropriety (it is true that these charges are not proved; they cannot be proved or dismissed without an investigation) as Finance Minister is blatant disrespect for governance. Elevation of Power Minister as Home Minister immediately after a massive power outage is preposterous mistiming.
