Cheque facility won't be withdrawn, says the govt
It is a matter of relief that the Union Government has clarified that cheque facility won't be withdrawn.

There were stray reports that an overenthusiastic government favaouring total digitalisation may go in for banning the cheque books.

It is gratifying to note that the government won't proceed with the reforms this way.

Extremely lucky PM Dr Manmohan Singh
If anyone wants to name the luckiest Prime Minister of India, there could be no doubt that Dr Manmohan Singh stands the test of the dimension.

He is on the verge of completing 10 years as Prime Minister of India even as he was not a political animal to the core.

He assumed charge as the PM of India on May 22, 2004 when Sonia Gandhi gave him the post on a platter.

In the 2009 Lok Sabha elections too, the UPA got an improved position and the natural choice was none other than Manmohan Singh.

In the case of a political PM, he has to shoulder the responsibility of answering every charge himself. Here in this case, all the charges were answered or left unanswered by the Congress Party.

At 81, and in view of the political scenario changing rapidly, he has announced that he would not like to have a third term as PM, but would like Rahul Gandhi to assume the responsibility.

Manmohan Singh has every right to be jubilant about being the PM of India for a very long time.
