Vantage point

Friday, May 14, 2004


If yesterday was any indication, the LEFT is getting loonier by the day. Why did the first they say have to be "We will dissolve the Disinvestment Ministry"?

Now we know why the Indian Left is languishing behind the Chinese left on economic as well as governance issues.

My optimism index, like the Bombay Sensex has plummetted. The Congress needs to put its foot down and keep the Left miles away from economic policy. Let the voices of Manmohan Singh, Jairam Ramesh, Chidambaram and Co prevail.
