Yesterday our honorable prime minister addressed a press conference which was marked by the presence of eminent journalists and editors of electronic media including Rajdeep Sardesai. The motto of this press conference was to cover up and oil the trust engine of the population who have lost the faith in the union government due to recent and upcoming scams and opening up of the boxes containing serious corruption cases. To some extent our PM waxed out the allegations made on his government in recent times but somewhere he proved to be totally blunt and somewhere totally helpless.
He answered some questions with very ease like what is the possibility that the budget session will continue or on the political deadlock in west Asia, how will India react to it or if that type of situation persisted in India.He reverted with very perfect and satisfying answers but when he was asked about the 2G scam and Antrix Devas scam , he totally outbusted the expectations of the people who were watching him at that time and was waiting for his verdict on these issues. If we summarize his reply to these controversies then its a one line answer "we are looking into this , probes are being carried out by CBI officials and any culprit possessing high post will not be apologized due to dignity of his status and portfolio".This was the most obvious answer which could be easily interpreted if it was left unspoken also. Why he gave such baseless replies only two people knows number 1) he himself and number 2) Sonia Gandhi.
when asked about the ongoing talks with ULFA group , he was well and good with his statement as no leader can predict the flow of talks with any second party.
Some topics were left untouched in yesterday's press conference like biggest FDI investment, the POSCO deal, Permanent seat in UN in the security council, black money in swiss bank and census going on in the country.
For the conclusion I would like to say that its was little disheartning when he was singing the choir of coalition government again and again and blaming the same for giving the portfolio of telecom ministry to A Raja. He also said that TRAI was well informed of the fact the the licences were being granted on first come first serve basis. Although he tried to clear all the allegations of backroom talks being made on officials working in PMO on Antrix-Devas contract , but it was more petrified and highlighted due to Arnab's demean behaviour towards our prime minister which also received lot of criticism to him.
