Let him contest poll

Sir—This refers to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s statement, “I am not a good speaker, but I take decisions.” Mr Singh may not be a good speaker, but he should be capable enough of taking his own decisions. But looking back at his five years in office, one cannot but doubt his capability of taking ‘independent’ decision. However much he may stress upon his ‘decision-making skills’ as an ‘independent’ Prime Minister, the fact remains that he is not an elected but a nominated Prime Minister. Mr Singh should display the courage of facing voters and become an elected representative of the People of India.
