Prime Minister’s Musical Chairs

| Sunday, February 13, 2011
From the shuffle prepared by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh the only thing which has come out is that he has put new wine in old bottles. From couple of months Prime Minister was saying that he will reshuffle the cabinet and wants some new-fangled and youthful blood to drive the country. But now it seems that he forgotten all his desires for enhancing the position of Congress party in states where elections are on the course.

The only thing we can do from this reshuffle is bang our heads. After day by day reports of corruption in in-effect ness of numerous ministers it was believed by not only political-pandits but also populaces that Prime Minister will do rectification not only to run his government for full tenure but also to lower the burden of the opposition.

Not only issues like Commonwealth Games and 3G spectrums Government is giving the inkling of being in peril because of current big trouble price rise. Not only commoners of rural area but price rise have affected the populace of urban areas to. And these problems have emerged because of awful ministers so all of us have assumed that Prime Minister will not only clean the cabinet from corrupt and terrible ministers but also bring faces which can help the Prime Minister managing the government circumspectly.

No minister has been dropped from the last dispensation. Only three new faces have been brought in others have been mingled. Most of them have been questioned on corruption and in-effectness for administrating the branch have been rewarded and given promotion or their ministry has been changed so that they can make the outcome of other section also 0.

In the press conference it was said that it is a minor shuffle and the big one will take place after the budget session of the parliament. From this shuffle one thing which can happen in that rearranging is bringing back A Raja.

This reshuffle shows that Congress has only thought of state elections not at all about the country. Since in Uttar Pradesh elections are on head so two ministers were given promotion and one new was brought in.Same is with Kerala. The only thing I liked in this reshuffle is giving Sports Portfolio to Ajay Maken who is young face of this cabinet and looks very confident to make our country a sporting power.

After his promotion Praful Patel commented that he is happy since he can see many of his juniors going up in the cabinet. His performance was also not gratifying since in his term as a Civil-Aviation Minister Air India condition has became worst. Deshmukh was also not removed in spite of so many allegations nor did Kamalnath who was articulate as unsuccessful minister.

The game of Musical Chair which Prime Minister has played will not only give opposition more strength but I am afraid that UPA-2 will complete its term or not. If anyone can understand the full logic of this reshuffle, please do explain it to me.
