Manmohan’s Economics With Truth Has Resulted In Crying Wolf

Manmohan Singh was alleging that Prime Minister Modi was lying in order to hide an electoral loss.

MANMOHAN SINGH'S ECONOMICS WITH TRUTH
MANMOHAN SINGH'S ECONOMICS WITH TRUTH

The “secret” meeting between Pakistan personalities with Manmohan Singh and his brigades was something that raises suspicion

Even after his puerile description of India’s November 2016 Demonetisation as “Organised Loot and Legalised Plunder,” Manmohan Singh is often enough proclaimed as an economist. True or false, Doctor sahib is being extremely economical with the truth when he describes Prime Minister Modi’s reference to his presence in a recent meeting with some Pakistani top personalities as warranting a public apology.

Just see a portion of his statement he issued in mid-December. He says therein that questioning the purpose of the Congress-led delegation’s meeting a few Pak officials at a private residence, Prime Minister Modi was spreading “falsehood and canards being spread to score political points in a lost cause”. He further said “Fearing imminent defeat in Gujarat, the desperation of Prime Minister to hurl every abuse and latch on to every straw is palpable. Sadly & regrettably, Sh. Modi is setting a dangerous precedent with his insatiable desire to tarnish every constitutional office, including that of a former Prime Minister and Army Chief.” In short, Manmohan Singh was alleging that Prime Minister Modi was lying in order to hide a electoral loss. And, in a sort of egoistic flourish, Manmohan Singh proclaimed that “My track record of public service to the country over last five decades is known to everyone. No one, including Sh. Modi can lamely question it to gain lost political ground.”

Probably, no Indian has so far found Manmohan Singh as angry and agonized as reported above. He has not known to be as disturbed even when Sanjaya Baru, his Media Adviser in the PM’s office from May 2004 to August 2008, wrote in his book “The Accidental Prime Minister” that “significant power was wielded by the Congress party’s president Sonia Gandhi, to whom Singh was completely ‘subservient’ (sic)” and, when asked to explain that stance, Manmohan Singh said, “There cannot be two centres of power… I have to accept that the party president is the centre of power. The government is answerable to the party.”

The “secret” meeting between Pakistan personalities with Manmohan Singh and his brigades was something that raises suspicion.

Government responsible for the party? A Prime Minister of a country responsible to his political party?? Come. come, Manmohan Singhji, that’s an unbelievable new one in the political lexicon.

All that apart, the basic issue is that Prime Minister Modi NEVER, just never, mentioned any “conspiracy” or any “treason” or any “anti-nationalism” on the part of Manmohan Singh. All he was saying was that the “secret” meeting between Pakistan personalities with Manmohan Singh and his brigades was something that raises suspicion because the meeting came in between the Gujarat election process. And, let it be stated, a protocol for such meetings with an international political adversary required prior information to the ruling Union government — something that was not done.

Proof of what Prime Minister actually said lies in eating the pudding. Readers are therefore requested to watch the following two videos and pass their own verdict on the issue of Manmohan Singh’s delegation meeting that of Pakistan:

Finally, does Manmohan Singh justify the sensitivity of his ego to the extent of stopping Parliament from functioning?

  1. The guilt of Man Mohan Singh is
    a) Being puppet of his masters
    b) Allowed India be manipulated & divided for benefit of foreign bosses
    c) Did NOT speak truth at any level
    d) Closed his eyes, ears, mouth & ass also.
    e) Continued to be used by others even now
    A person at young age can be expected to do this for promoting himself a material future, but not when you waiting for Yamraj visa any moment. His role as Khangress PM is no less equivalent to that of a traitor.

  2. It is really shameful for MMS to accept that the party high command is more superior then the nation. Through his 10 years he was a maimed PM under Sonia Gandhi so much so that one wonders whether he ever had anything to say as far as the PM’s office was concerned. To have a dinner party with anyone is not a crime but to have a dinner engagement with Pakistani delegation without informing NIA is definately is a crime. There are no two opinions about this.

  3. MMS – “My Madam Sonia” is morally corrupt person with no values. He actively encouraged all the scams under UPA and blamed it on “coalition dharma”. He is a disgrace to the brave sikh community which sacrificed so much for this country.

  4. So MMS says that being ‘former’ prime minister or’former’ army chief are constitutional positions!
    Then there are so many people in such ‘constitutional positions’ in this country!
