Manmohan govt most corrupt: BJP on 'Time' report
Time Magazine had flayed Manmohan Singh and the UPA government for failing to act when India's growth was going down.

New Delhi: Reacting to Time Magazine's latest issue dubbing Prime Minister Manmohan Singh an underachiever, the BJP on Monday said that the UPA government was the most corrupt.

"It is sad that India is perceived as the one of the most corrupt country in the world. Dr Manmohan Singh's government is the most corrupt. Sonia Gandhi cannot escape the blame as India suffering because of her misrule," said BJP spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad.

The Time Magazine had flayed Manmohan Singh and the UPA-II government for failing to act at a time when India's growth was slowing down.

Questioning Singh and the UPA's policies, Time said the PM, appointed so by Congress President Sonia Gandhi despite never having won an election, was "a man in shadow".

Criticising the PM for his "unwillingness to carry out reforms", the magazine said that the PM "wasted the past three years". It also questioned his ability to manage the Finance portfolio following Pranab Mukherjee's exit.

Interestingly, in a previous article in March this year, the magazine had a cover story on Gujarat CM Narendra Modi, and while it lauded him for his development work across the state, the article questioned his Prime Ministerial ambitions.

Ravi Shankar Prasad, however, chose to disagree. He said, "Narendra Modi's governance record is always well appreciated. He is one of the best CMs in India."
