“But is there a chance he was only articulating what many in Congress party agree with but few will ever air in public?”

I am more interested in knowing the eventual outcome of this outburst. How the Congress reacts to this is more to the point.

Though there may be a school which thinks Sonia Gandhi chose the wrong person for the PMs post, I think it is probably closer to reality that those who are carping now are doing so only because they know that this is Manmohan Singh’s last tenure. They are preparing for the next PM’s entry, perhaps that day is further away than they hope for. And maybe their bickering and non-performance will be the cause of the Congress missing the bus the next time around. People want results, rhetoric and platitudes have now been exposed for what they really are and fall on deaf ears.

I feel it is not so much that Dr Manmohan Singh is rudderless as that he has been shackled and not given the freedom to function.
