TRAGIC FIGURE Congress pastes Post for ‘silent PM’ report

Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh
After the Time magazine called him an “underachiever”, an article in the Washington Post flayed Manmohan Singh for being a “silent” Prime Minister who has become “a tragic figure”. Reacting strongly to the article, information and broadcasting minister Ambika Soni said that the article was “unacceptable”.
 The “claims are completely baseless and we reject it,” she said.
The article stated: “The shy, soft-spoken 79-year-old is in danger of going down in history as a failure.”
 The external affairs ministry is expected to take up the issue. So far, the Washington Post said that “no apology has been offered for the article”.
“They have done this kind of things earlier and had apologised. If the Washington Post has written things like this against the Prime Minister, trust me I will take strong action against them,” Ms Soni said.
