Manmohan’s Interview With TV News Editors

Everyone in India is apparently talking of Manmohan Singh’s interview with major Indian TV news channels plus international ones like Al Jazeera, BBC, CNN. From all comments on various blogs I gathered that many ordinary folk are disappointed using what he previously to convey. I watched it online and truth be told, was impressed. Remembering he could be inside a coalition government and is also therefore beholden with other parties, I think he’s a wonderfully stabling influence. His economic policies since Narasimha Rao’s days under whom he was finance minister, have helped more Indians prosper than another person’s. His background, and therefore his strength, is finance.
Where corruption can be involved, I agree that he’s weak, making excuses for not taking people in power to task, sometimes, even rewarding them with promotions. Every TV editor asked him what he was doing re corruption of some person in power or even the other with his fantastic answers never said he’d have the ability to recover the lost revenues or make the face accountable by asking him or her to resign. To know someone is corrupt rather than insisting on making the face accountable makes Manmohan as guilty like he committed the crime himself. His answers were, to mind, somewhat helpless except when he asserted that after the budget session (not now, but sometime in the longer term) there would be a reshuffle of his entire cabinet.
But here’s the problem – Manmohan’s policy on corruption could be weak but many people are agreed the results corrupt himself. His economic policies since he was finance minister during Narasimha Rao’s PMship, have helped more Indians prosper than any other person’s. There are other politicians who are corrupt, who use strong arm tactics to subdue Indians who question them; that are communal of course – which suggests they are not interested in the wellness of Indians except individuals who fit in with their own community and whose economic policies haven’t ever been as strong as Manmohan’s.
Summing up
So many comments I’ve read indicate that this Indian public isn’t impressed with Rahul Gandhi – the PM in waiting! Secular Indians definitely don’t want a communal minded party (only our community and damn the others) to come to power. Everyone is agreed Manmohan is honest, astute and has sound economic policies. Those will be the sum of his leadership skills. He is weak on corruption and I’m really not sure what he plans to do about terrorism, inflation and the environment. He blames the Congress coalition partners for compromises he has to make as well as for needing to overlook corruption. The public is wary. Nobody believes him.
What can we caused by customize the situation? Do we solely rely on our news reporters to bring things out in the open or are we able to, people, do something? And if so, what, that could be effective? Can we keep showing Manmohan that we won’t let up our pressure on corrupt individuals in politics till he’s forced to do something and never just mouth platitudes – that it is people he is more accountable to instead of his coalition partners and his awesome party members?
Do we now have every other options besides looking forward to a candidate which will start the economy like Manmohan has, is a bit more honest than he could be as well as perhaps stronger than him when confronted with corruption in the own party or perhaps the coalition, and last, although not least, someone that deals strongly with terrorists as well as the environment?
Yes perform. We can protest in unity; make our presence felt. The key word is UNITY. It mustn’t be that after you’ll find threats to someone’s life, property and household, ordinary people quietly move away. It takes time, effort, a united action plan and leadership skills to create such unity. India Against Corruption have got all from the above and so are worth a call. They aren’t a political party however their leaders are ordinary people who’ve dedicated their lives to cooking corrupt people in power accountable.
