Manmohan Singh weakest Prime Minister: Mulayam

more-in

Launching a scathing attack on Manmohan Singh, Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh on Monday described him as the weakest Prime Minister the country had ever produced.

“He (Manmohan Singh) is the weakest Prime Minister the country has ever seen,” Mr. Singh told party workers at a function here on the 42nd death anniversary of socialist leader Ram Manohar Lohia.

The prices of essential commodities had sky-rocketed, but the UPA government led by Manmohan Singh had failed to provide relief to the common man, he said.

The SP leader also took potshots at the UPA government on the pumping of fake currency into the country which, he said, was weakening India’s economy.

The former Defence Minister said he had definite information that Pakistan, China and Nepal were being used as conduits for pumping fake notes into the country, but alleged the Manmohan Singh government was downplaying the issue.

“Pakistan is using China and Nepal to send terrorists and fake currency into India. Our Ambassadors in these nations are aware of what is going on, but the government has not uttered a word on this.

“We can give enough evidence to substantiate our charges,” Mr. Singh said and asked the Prime Minister to institute an inquiry the matter.
