Time Magazine flays Manmohan Singh, dubs him as 'underachiever'

Sunday, July 08, 2012
Washington/New Delhi: In an unexpacted move Time Magazine has called Prime Minister Manmohan Singh 'The Underachiever'.

Flaying him and the UPA-II for failing to act at a time when India's growth was slowing down the magazine has dubbed Singh and the UPA's policies.

Criticising the PM for his "unwillingness to carry out reforms", the magazine said that the PM "wasted the past three years". It also questioned his ability to manage the Finance portfolio following Pranab Mukherjee's exit.

Time said the PM, appointed so by Congress President Sonia Gandhi despite never having won an election, was "a man in shadow."

Interestingly enough, in a previous article in March this year, the magazine had a cover story on Gujarat CM Narendra Modi, and while it lauded him for his development work across the state, the article questioned his Prime Minsiterial ambitions.
