PM ‘requesting’ Rahul to be next PM….hah?? PM says on floor of parliament that he don’t know of corruption in his ministries….what kind of PM is he then…it is his job to know for god sake….inflation, security, food, roads, he has failed on every front…only success is corruption front…he is PM of THE MOST CORRUPT government ever in India…I feel ashamed, because of our PM, in front of my American colleagues

In my opinion what gave Congress such a boost in their tally is because of urban middle class India. For once, this group voted in support of the Congress in a very big way. Specially in the towns and cities of Maharashtra. So the last time they did showcase their electoral strength. It was more a vote for MM Singh, the man. Unfortunately his masterly inaction has dissipated that good will within a very short time.
