Q.

News report - Foreign minister S M Krishna has criticized the timing of home secretary G K Pillais remarks on the Headley revelations, which Pakistan used to sabotage the foreign ministers meeting last week.
This shows that there are fissures within the UPA government, exposing a strong division of opinion and perception.
Question Is this the weakness of the PM that, in spite of the Home Minister and Foreign Minister belonging to congress, he is not able to create a unity among them?

Vikram.. UPA Government is a Coalition Governance to attain the Power.. and HV NO SPECIFIC APPROACH towards Policies.. The difference between the Two Ministries are Nothing but the different approach towards looking at a crisis..

According to my view on the recent visit.. that when we try to make a cordial relationship.. we have to hv lots of tollerance even with a relationships.. This is a matter of Country and the World Reputation.. Since we are abider of International Laws and respect World Governance.. We should not leave any space toward the World Community to raise fingure on us.

Now regarding your question.. NO.. it is NOT PM's weakness.. these are part of Politics..

In a Democratic Government difference of opinion is common.

None can hide their own views on important matters.

As and when required such issues will be discussed and solved.

It so happens ....Coz....U P A contains many parties.

I think the timing of S M KRISHNA criticizing Home secretary G.K PILLAI is wrong.
We all can agree and be 100% sure that PAKISTAN cannot be trusted as they are never concerned of concrete development towards peace in the region. S M KRISHNA cannot guarantee that pakistan would not have derailed the talks had G K PILLAI would not have spoken earlier.
It is a ploy by Pakistan to have talks with India without bringing the issue of terrorism. So it is better to support each and every Indian when dealing with pakistan rather than passing the blame.
Ultimately pakistan's aim is no evident should be brought out in open. And they are wondering why India is so hell bent on 26/11. Whereas in earlier terrorist attacks involving Dawood and Memon India never pursued strongly. PAKISTAN WANT INDIA TO REMAIN SILENT AND TOLERATE AS IT DID EARLIER.

It is indeed weakness of the INDIAN prime minister to not able to create unity amongst them. In any ways any prime minister will be weak because the e ...more

PM Manmohan Singh and his chosen circle of ministers are timid and too old to carry on public service.
Manmohan Singh may be a good scholler and finence wizard but he has zero leadership skills.

If he had any ability he would have taken ropes of power in his hand long back

In the first place Home secretary should not be discussing openly on what Headley had reveled. Since the information reveled may require cross checking and further probing to find out if they are genuine information or just some red herring to put the 26/11 case off tract. Moreover what ever information available should be kept confidential as it may have an impact on Kashab's case. As S M Krishna has already pointed out, the timing of Home Secretary's remark were not ok. We have played into Pakistan's hand as Home secretary's remark will be utilized as reason for talk failure. Because of such loose talks by our senior bureaucrat, US may also use it as a excuse for not sharing anymore information with us. These type of problems have got nothing to do with the effectiveness of the PM. These type of clashes are happening because of inflated Ego among the senior ministers. Each of them is trying to create a power center for himself so that they can be regarded as the next choice for PM as ...more
