India has been rocked by a series of corruption scams in recent times. India’s Prime Minister Manmohan Singh who is known to be man of impeccable honesty and integrity has landed in a tough spot due to these scandals. With his party men and Allies all facing very credible allegations of siphoning off millions of dollars in Telecom and Scams, the PM has been facing a torrid time in Parliament. With compulsion of coalition politics, the PM has faced an unprecedented judgment from the SC asking him for an affidavit over delay in prosecuting a Telecom Minister. The Prime Minister in a candid interview revealed the state of his mind by saying that he felt like a "High School Student" facing one Test after Another. At 76 years, it’s tough to imagine anyone going through high school exams. However one would think these Tests are considerably tougher for the PM than simple high school exams
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh says he feels like a high school student facing one test after the other.
Every time, we have been able to confront the crisis and turn it into an opportunity, said the prime minister.
Singh said that the economy will return to sustained growth path next year with growth rate of 9 to 10% of the GDP.
Small farmers and entrepreneurs often face unresponsive and corrupt government, he said.
