New Delhi: For Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, the latest revelations couldn't have come at a worse time. Already under siege on the 2G scam, the latest Wikileaks revelations that cash was exchanged to win the crucial trust vote in 2008 now raises more troubling questions.

Singh is King was the slogan at that time. A much-fought-for win in the 2008 trust vote gave Manmohan Singh a reason to smile.

Three years later, the latest Wikileaks cables has brought the frown back. The accidental politician and embodiment of decency has now being asked to step down.

"This Government has no authority to continue. They must resign immediately," said Leader of the Opposition in Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley.

The report has brought shame to the nation. This government has lost the moral right of ruling the country," said Leader of the Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj.

At the peak of the nuke deal tug-of-war with the Left, PM had threatened to step down. The Congress chose him and then bent every democratic rule to muster the numbers covering up for the loss of Left support.

A 2009 UPA victory had made him the king, but now with 2G, CWG and Devas Antrix deals, the PM's honest image has been shaken.

In these scams, PM's spin-doctors gave the argument that while his ministers erred, the PM himself was clean.

But Wikileaks, to a great extent, shakes this argument.

The alleged exchange of cash for votes is being seen as a fallout of the PM's personal obsession with the nuke deal and his personal affinity with the US.

A stung Congress swung into action.

"There is no reason for the PM to resign. We came back to power in 2009...shouldn't the people's voice be more important than the cables," said Congress leader Rajiv Shukla.

The credibility of the cables may be questioned but what cannot be denied is the fact that, stung by scams, the PM's image has been deeply shaken. And now even his spin doctors seem to be failing to find a solution.

kds1980 ji thank you for the post.

What a bloody mindset in the leadership of India. I wonder about the future of India.

A stung Congress swung into action.

"There is no reason for the PM to resign. We came back to power in 2009...shouldn't the people's voice be more important than the cables," said Congress leader Rajiv Shukla.

The naivety in the above is mind boggling. Mr. Shukla is saying that as long as they can hide ill deeds when in power and get elected in the next election everything is good. Who cares about past mis-deeds. I suppose with every election they get purified with "Ganga Jal" (Holy Ganga water lol). Wow, God help India.

Guess what to expect from "Hondh Chillar", "Pataudi" and "1984 Genocide" follow-ups.

Since Congress came to power in various ways and places. Nothing is going to happen. Let us not hope against hope.

Congress says, let us be friends again and forget all that.


Guess that is what is going to happen. Why are people expecting anything different from this bunch of goons?
Sat Sri Akal.

corruption is a serious problem in India ,but the fact is It is very much problem of the world
not only India

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corruption_Perceptions_Index

China which is the manufacturing hub of world is very close India in corruption.Russia is even worse
One Wrong Does Not Make a Right

Obviously that is exactly the wrong want you to think and be comfortable with. If ordinary people make supportive arguments and give examples for the corrupt, who am I who does not live in India! It just hurts when it comes to lives and murder of Sikhs and others.

They used to have anti-corruption campaigns in the 60's, it is almost 50 years later!

Corruption is not a victimless crime.

Sat Sri Akal.

First, the CONTEXT.

The systematic corruption of spirituality by the clergy is a phenomenon that cuts across all major spiritual thought...
