    The happenings in the Congress with its leaders is real confusing.

    Jayaram Ramesh and Diggy Raja have lambasted Chidambaram.

    Rahul Gandhi went to Odhisa (Orissa) and sort of support the environment minister against the Commerce ministers.


    And the PM is silent and not giving an indication as to what we are to believe.

    And now his Adviser comes out all guns blazing.

    Are we rudderless?

    Must the government appear to be in disarray?

    All said and done, while there is nothing to write home about on the performance of the govt, yet it is not doing too badly either, given Indian standards?

    What's up?

    Added

    I am listening to the TV news on CWG.

    A bridge has collapsed and Mrs Dixit states that it was not for athletes and officials but for spectators! So, the spectators are disposal and they can die or get injured?

    Foreign delegates are criticising the standard of the Games Village, including a foreign chap who earlier said the arrangement is super and fantastic.

    It is really painful!!

    it is not that India lacks expertise or administrative skill for organising. The Asiads, under Mrs Gandhi, and which the Army organised, was a super success and a path setter!

    What happened?

    The PM should have shown greater interest, but then he is not a sportsman!!

    Sometimes I believe that there was no better PM to showcase India than Mrs Indira Gandhi!

    Politics is an ugly sport .where the winner takes it all.
    And there is no democracy without politics.

    In India people's pressure does work. Now the politicians have to deliver. Those old days where there was " no alternative " are gone.

    The aspiration levels of society have gone up tremendously thus leading to progress and change.

    Infact there’s been nothing significant for this government to show in the present rule of UPA2 that they might suggest was truly remarkable.

    Back in UPA 1 they would shout, it’s the left that doesn’t allow them to function and especially on economic reforms, its been over a year this government was formed but they still don’t have anything to show. The second green revolution that was so much in talks during UPA1 is no where to be seen, seems it all died down post the fiasco of bt-brinjal where the government was seen spearheading corporate interests.

    The run-up to cwg games has been if anything then that’s been just shame so far. This should have been an opportunity to showcase the world how far have we come from 1980s when we last hosted a similar event, but alas all we ended up showing was that how utterly disorganized we are, and how to make a mess out of something which could have easily sailed through.

    This is a government which has no one stand on maoist terror but then chidambram did one commendable job and that was to make this country wake up to a form of terror which was slowly creeping up without the mass really realizing what was happening. Talk to people in general and they still feel it’s a new form of terror that has come to force.

    The one ministry I have seen really committed all this time has been the HRD and kapil sibal made sure he delivered than do just hollow talk which is what has become a trademark of this government, on a similar note kamal nath hit the big scene with huge commitments but all one finds him today is either shy away from personal interviews which happened to be his favorite past time just a year back or point fingers at others for his failures.

    In the corporate people who dont perform get sacked, what happens to these non-performers who do not even achieve 10-50% of the commitments made, most of whom dont even make any such commitments?

    Be showered with more goodies for being loyal to a certain few and is that all that matters to run a country?

    To end it all, so when is it that one sees Harish Khare be kicked out from the present role of being media advisor to the PM with a gag order that he wont utter a word in public?

    True, but I am surprised as to how he could speak so!

    That too being the PM's man criticising Sonia Gandhi's domain!

    Is there a power struggle?

    Sir,

    There is a power struggle for sure going on there.

    The thing that comes on the face of it is, there is a group (supposedly chidambram, kamal nath ….) that is sided by/to the PM and then there are others (digvijay, jairam ramesh or more specifically the rebels) who do not really see him (the PM) as their leader but want to see rahul head the country and they pretty much know that he will sooner or later jump the wagon wheel and so they want to align their position in such a way that they are seen as the face which can really take them forward with newer thought and bigger roles to play and I suspect it will remain like this till the time rahul is made the PM.

    Or so it seems to me, someone who follows congress closely would have a better understanding.

    That is by far the best summary of Bongress. Thank you, it's what's I've been believing all this while. A party whose only aim is to win elections, stagnate progress, and throw some alms at the poor to make themselves look better.
