@Dr V. C. Bhutani: "Dr Singh, like Nehru, is a man of absolute integrity. One may accuse him of wrong decisions but nobody can accuse him of dishonesty." Well, he is Nehru's orphan as is the whole cabal of Congress leaders today. So, how many wrong decisions is he allowed? Lal Bahadur Shastri offered his resignation to Nehru after one railway accident. As far as "dishonesty" goes, he is perhaps the most intellectually dishonest man in that cabal. (Current Coalgate has exposed him to be so.) If that were not so, he would not have been content to crawl through a loophole in the Indian Constitution every morning into the prime ministerial office and occupy a chair once sat upon by Nehru, a man who proved to be almost all flaws but admittedly a Democrat to his core. He (MMS) is an interloper PM who shamelessly managed to purloin that august office.

"Those who comment here and speak in uncomplimentary terms merely show their own class." Having said the above, did I expose myself as a Shudra in your view?
