Prime Minister's confession

Sometimes the Prime Minister speaks the truth. Yesterday (29th Sept.) was one such occasion.

According to a report in The Hindu, Manmohan Singh had an informal interaction with journalists soon after the swearing-in of the new Chief Justice of India. (Formal interactions are well-rehearsed and are therefore truth-proof.)

On UPA allies' apprehensions that the government's recent decisions could hurt their electoral prospects, the Prime Minister remarked,"We will do what is good for the country. We are far away from elections." The giveaway is that when the elections are nearing, do not expect the government to do what is good for the country.
