Bottomline: February 10

Poor Dr. Manmohan Singh is repeatedly resurrected by the Congress party to rescue it from the mess it finds itself in. No one ever accused him of being articulate, but he did start with a personally clean image and a reputation for ‘unimpeachable’ integrity. Alas, both of these ‘assets’ have been over-exploited, and for all practical purposes have been rendered ‘non-performing’. The time-serving, underwhelming ex-PM cuts a very sorry figure when he tries to defend the indefensible, suddenly finding his tongue, and tries to convince all who care to listen that whatever his government did to help a ‘Captain of Industry’ Vijay Mallya was ‘routine’, confirming to best global practices.  The man who loved to advertise himself as the ‘King of Good Times’, today reminds one more of a ‘Devil May Care’ fun-loving skipper of a pirate ship than any responsible ‘Captain of Industry.’
