Prime Minister Manmohan Singh met the ladies and gentlemen of the Indian media for the second time in six years on the completion of the first year of his second term today—and parroted the usual cliches about corruption, Naxalism, “trust-deficit“, inflation, 2G, Rahul G and Sonia G.
The only time Singh paused to ponder in his monotonous 75-minute powwow was when he was asked whose advice he valued more: his wife Gursharan Kaur or Sonia Gandhi. Otherwise, the whole thing went as his media meisters would have hoped, with longhops being deflected to fineleg.
What is the one question you would have asked Manmohan Singh?
Keep your queries sharp and pointed. And, as per Press Information Bureau norms, “no supplementaries please”.
