Q.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh today virtually blamed former MoS (Personnel) Prithviraj Chavan for the fiasco involving appointment of P J Thomas as CVC, saying the note forwarded by him for the selection committee did not have information about corruption case against Thomas. - Do we require such P.M who is ignorant and could be misguided easily ?

When a discussion about such appointments was held sometime ago, many of the bureaucrats admitted that most of the time the notes forwarded to the ministers regarding appointments have had only a bare minimum of facts and not all.As such I do not find fault with his statement. It seems we are crucifying him for being somewhat honest in his statements rather than evasive. As an PM he could have done many things to bottle up the issues including pressurize the Judiciary. An Indhira Gandhi, A Modi, A Karunanidhi or Jeyalalitha could have done that along with Mayawathi and Yediyurappa. I think we are over reacting in this issue.

Our Mr. Clean P.M. has lowered his status and prestige during his second term. Blabbering these ways is unbecoming of a former Professor of a University. It's better not to lose the remaining respect by keeping silence rather than exposing his weakness both as administrator and strategist by uttering meaningless explanations. As long as the crow sits silently on the mango tree, it receives more regard mistaking to be nightingale; but once starts "singing" imagine the result. I pity our P.M. It's time for him to quit. Jai Hind.

Saying this does not absolve thePM of his responsibility.It is his duty to check all credentials of the person being appointed for such a senior post.Tommorow if Chinaattcks India will he plead innocence saying th at it was the duty of the chiefs of armed forces to defend and not his responsibility .In any organization the chief is fully responsible for eachand every act oftheorganization.Either the PM should accept theresponsibility for this lapse or acceptthathe is not competent enoughto get all the information beforehand.

In the 3 member committee Sushma swaraj clearly mentioned about pending charge-sheet and also said she will not object to the other 2 candidates but in his arrogance PM called up Prathviraj Chavan and told the majority decision,
This implies he had prior instruction from his higher up to appoint Thomas as CVC and that's why he was in such a hurry to finish it in first meeting. Now he can not blame Sonia so he is blaming Chavan
