One wonders if Mr Mukherjee was that powerful a person as to be capable of making the PM his puppet and ensure that there is total chaos in governance, whereby the UPA and the Congress appear to be 'blessed' with a Death Wish. Political parties even if they cause the biggest flap, tend to dress of the events as if it were a success. That is why this policy paralysis and economic chaos is being blamed on everyone and every Nation other than the Govt. If the author Mr Rao can fathom this axiomatic truth, I would be surprised if a seasoned politician and even a clever fox like Mukherjee who has been in government since Indira Gandhi would not have known it and would be waiting for the author to point Mukherjee's nose in the right direction. As Mr Yeshwant Singh in his interaction in the programme Devils' Advocate categorically stated that the PM oversees the FM for all major financial political initiatives and policies. The economist PM would surely take a greater interest in what is his subject - economics - than any other subject. That would be natural. In this Op Ed, the author of the same, instead of piling wrath on the FM, has merely made the PM and Sonia Gandhi look like dithering, impotent idiots incapable of steering the nation and instead bowing down to the dictates of people they themselves have appointed!
