Misplaced Confidence

The virus of CWG scam does not appear to heal the Government as it is erupting and affecting its members every day in new forms. The current controversy about P.Chidambaram has put the Government and Congress party on a flat mat and the opposition on offensive. Surprisingly, there is division among the different Ministers on the issue who have come out in the open. Apart from the current issue, the open wars of words between Jairam Ramesh, Manishankar Iyer and Ajay Maken was not a pleasant sight for the people watch. One can understand the grievances of coalition partners like DMK against the majority ruling party, the open fights of the same party's members throwing mud balls at each other cannot be justified.

2. In that context the statement of Prime Minister that "I will continue to defend my Ministers and that I will continue to enjoy the confidence of my Ministers" is far from realty and sounds hollow. He had reposed the same faith in A.Raja and Dayanidhi Maran and continued to defend them till Raja entered Tihar Jail and Maran is now facing CBI investigation. As regards enjoying the confidence of Ministers, it can be said that the Ministers are confident that whatever they do, right or wrong, Prime Minister will do nothing. Only Courts will act, if necessary.
