The PTI reports these words from Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi

Maintaining that the letters were merely “forwarding” in nature, he said “there is no question of endorsing or agreeing” in what Baalu had written. He denied suggestions that the PMO had lobbied for the gas supply.

So the Government of the Aam Admi is now officially acknowledging that it was busy currying political favors to Khaas Admi T.R. Baalu.

If as Mr. Singhvi claims the Prime Minister was not endorsing or agreeing with Mr. Baalu, why exactly did he approach him to forward his letters ?

A) Is it because he is illiterate and does not know how to address letters ?

B) Is it because your government’s mail delivery is so unreliable that he decided to outsource delivery to your Office ?

C) Is it because you have a lot of spare time and have decided to take on Mail Forwarding as a hobby ?

D) Is it because the Petroleum Ministry is allergic to bigamous and flatulent nepotism ?

It should be clear to the Indian public at large that the Prime Minister’s Office has no time for Leadership or Governance, busy as it is currying favors and forwarding requests.

The Prime Minister’s flagship bailout program having bombed perhaps the Prime Minister must consider forwarding this letter from a farmer and this one to his party in Karnataka in response to its manifesto promising Color TVs.  While he is at it perhaps these letters as well addressed to Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi saying Dhanyavaad for the 4 years of dysfunctional Governance his UPA coalition has delivered – Poverty, Educational Backwardness . It is perhaps time Smt Sonia Gandhi put the Prime Minister out of his misery.
