If whatever is being claimed incorrect or as the wrong-doings is [or was] true, what prevented from taking on the steps to correct them?
In my view, the matter is not simply of a FDI retail here or a Diesel price hike there or GAAR deferment elsewhere.
What needs to be done is to ensure that every pie that the government spends is not frittered away to the pockets of the unscrupulous class, every economic decision be taken on solely the basis of its long-term merit of what IS GOOD for the country etc. And this applies to all the state governments and local bodies as well.
Are we talking of utopia?

The present moral standards of the ruling allinace and policiital class is setting new standards of degradation. Ostensibily, it you have a yes man as head of UTI, it would be convenient to help a few friends in industry, securities market.

To cap it all we appoint the gentleman in question President of India.
