Manmohan Singh, the master scamster

The secretary in the ministry of Health and Family Welfare refused his minister's (Ghulam Nabi Azad's) suggestion to recommend a scam-tainted person for a particular post under the control of the ministry. Consequently, the secretary was shifted. The scam-tainted person was Sonia Gandhi's choice. (You may wonder why state the obvious?)

P.Chidambaram publicly humiliated one senior civil servant because the latter's English was not Queen's. The civil servant represented his grievance to the prime minister.

An IPS official not endorsed by the CVC was appointed as Additional Director, CBI.

These and many more such instances reflect the decay occurring in governance. In most such instances, the honourable prime minister could have undone the damage or at least expressed his anguish. He did neither. His heart bleeds over disruptions in the parliament. But he is not affected in the least by unending array of scams manifesting under his nose.

Many people wonder how such a sincere and honest person could put up with so many scandals. Such people should reexamine their assumption!
