"I, indeed, did my duty"

Asked to comment on Vinod Rai's criticism of his leadership, Manmohan Singh has responded with laconic  " I, indeed, did my duty". If we had thought that the prime minister's duty was to protect the constitution and the nation, we are totally misguided. PM's duty, if we understand the economist genius correctly, is to protect the scamsters from the law.

This is not the first time that Singh gives a sinister twist to meaning of duty. (Please see the post dated 5th October, 2005 on "Manmohan Singh and Bhagavad Gita".) One feels appalled that behind a misleading facade, Singh always had a crooked mind.

Singh will do well to enlighten the nation on all that he had done in pursuance of his duty.
