Manmohan wants to quit. Country collectively yawns and is more worried about how they are going to buy next week's vegetables. The Commies threaten to withdraw in the N-Deal is signed, but they don't exactly want elections in Bengal or Kerala where things are not exactly going swimmingly. The DMK isn't exactly looking forward to elections in TN, and Lalu for all his posturing (does he get paid by Zee and who is his ghost writer? And blog comments are mostly to do with how the Railways are screwing up) got a massive slap in the face from HT yesterday. Who wants an election, really? Other than the BJP, that is.
However, even if there were an election, there is a school of though which goes that no-one wants to win an election later this year or early next year. The problems will not disappear and one of the first decsions of any new government will have to be raising prices - again. Going on bended knee to the Saudi's won't exactly help. Sorting out issues like why, despite 'supposed' massive finds, almost no gas is flowing from the KG Basin. No wait, thats because two brothers are fighting. Or maybe because the gas is just 'gas'?
But my point remains, Manmohan said he would quit. Nobody cared. Maybe he should quit when he has some pride left.
