What Vinod Rai's book proves History will not be kind to Manmohan Singh

History is unlikely to judge Manmohan Singh any more kindly than contemporary media has.

Vinod Rai's scoop UPA scams began within 70 days of Manmohan becoming PM

UPA has been associated with scams towards the latter half of its tenure - 2G, CWG and Coalgate among them. But it faltered first with Praful Patel, who pushed Air India into financial ruin with his unwarranted board intervention #Corruption #Manmohan Singh #CAG #P.

Manmohan's silence Is the ex-PM playing fall guy to perfection?

Though many like Rai believe that Manmohan Singh was under tremendous pressure from UPA allies, it is becoming clear that that something was amiss at the PMs end during the entire course of this allocation procedure. #Corruption #Manmohan Singh #CAG #P.

Dear Manmohanji, your silence means an admission of guilt

Now that Manmohan Singh is no longer the PM, he needs to show transparency and forthrightness in his reaction to all that is being said about him. #Politics #2G scam #Sonia Gandhi #Manmohan Singh #UPA #CAG #Prime Minister #Congress #InMyOpinion #CWG Scam #Vinod Rai #Coalgate #Sanjaya Baru #PC Parakh #Not Just An Accountant

What Vinod Rai overlooks is Manmohan Singh's double-agent dilemma

Vinod Rai faults Manmohan Singh for failing to do his duty. But we should also trace the failure to a serious misalignment of principal-agent interests. MMS was doubly removed from the principal - the people of India - whose interests he was duty-bound to serve. #Politics #Sonia Gandhi #Manmohan Singh #UPA #CAG #Congress #Vinod Rai #Sanjaya Baru #Not Just An Accountant
