Manmohan Singh shamelessly calls his G8 trip "successful"

India's lame duck Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is not only incompetent, but also dishonest and shameless.

Less than a week after the horrific train blasts that killed over 200 and wounded over 700 innocent Indians, he reacted by breaking off Foreign Secretary level talks with Pakistan with the air of having done something serious, and then went to the G8 summit with clear evidence of Pakistan involvement promising the Nation that something would come out of it. Now, he has failed to get the G8 countries to issue a statement even recognizing the evidence against Pakistan, let alone warning it against continuing its terror campaign against innocent Indian citizens.

And he has the gall to call this a "successful" visit !

He is not only incompetent, but also completely dishonest, and has absolutely no shame.

India sorely needs better leaders. you my dear Reader, need to wake up, and talk to people around you. Our "leaders" have taken advantage of our apathy for far too long. The time to act is now.

Demand the resignation of incompetent Home Minister Shivraj Patil for having to prevent more than 15 major terrorist attacks against innocent Indians ever since he took charge as Home Minister.

Demand the resignation of Manmohan Singh for his lame-duck response to the latest outrage from Pakistan.

India would do a lot better by outsourcing the Government's job to the people who are in charge of Israel. The Israelis know how to respond to Islamic terror.

PM concludes 'successful' G8 visit

V Mohan Narayan in St Petersburg | July 18, 2006 10:36 IST

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Tuesday concluded his three-day visit to St Petersburg on a 'highly successful' note with world leaders coming strongly against terrorism and showing 'deep understanding' of India's concerns on energy security.

Officials in St Petersburg said the strong statement by the G-8 leaders as also the four outreach countries on the issue of terrorism and those sponsoring it, was a clear endorsement of India's position over Pakistan-backed cross-border terrorism. Foreign Secretary Shyam Saran saw this united stand as a 'major political gain' for India.

During his discussions with President George W Bush, Russian President Vladimir Putin and other leaders, Dr Singh had made a strong pitch for an unambiguous and united stand from the international community on combating terrorism.

Bush strongly condemned the recent blasts in Mumbai and Srinagar, and extended complete solidarity of the US with India in dealing with the scourge. During the meeting, Bush expressed optimism that the Indo-US nuclear deal would go through with the US Congress, finalising the requisite legislation in the next few weeks.

Dr Singh conveyed New Delhi's concerns over the proposed American legislation granting waivers for nuclear commerce and sought permanent 'constructive solutions.' "There are some concerns which worry us and our Parliament," the prime minister told Bush, pointing out that India was a democracy and he was accountable to Parliament, which zealously kept a watch on what he does and what he does not do.

During his trip, the prime minister had separate meetings with the Russian President, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev and Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi.

He also joined the first-ever trilateral meeting with Chinese President Hu Jintao and Putin during which they expressed their strong interest in the emergence of a multi-polar world and multilateralism. The focus of the discussions was on terrorism, drug trafficking, crime and other challenges confronting these countries, he said.

At the meeting of the five 'outreach' countries comprising India, China, Brazil, South Africa and Mexico, global challenges, including terrorism figured prominently. During the interaction, Dr Singh said while globalisation was an irreversible process, the mechanisms of managing it left a great deal to be desired. On the issue of energy security, the prime minister warned that this could not be built on perpetuation of poverty. Therefore, there was need for an effective strategy for diversification of energy supplies.
