The Congress Vice-President, Shri Rahul Gandhi, has claimed that the Prime Minister hardly consults his senior Ministers. If Shri Rahul Gandhi is to be believed, then Smt. Sushma Swaraj is not consulted on the Pakistan policy, Shri Rajnath Singh was unaware of the Nagaland accord and, presumably, I am unaware of the Budget proposals.

As one evolves from a young to a middle-aged one, we certainly expect a certain level of maturity. The more I hear Shri Rahul Gandhi, the more I start wondering “how much does he know – when will he know”.

The Prime Minister should be the natural leader of the party and the Government. In the NDA it is so. The UPA was quite different. The Prime Minister is to lead by example. The present Prime Minister not only works hard and involves himself in the functioning of the various departments of the government, but inspires his team to work harder than we would have normally. Each one of us, whether the External Affairs Minister, Home Minister or myself, are responsible for each important decision taken by each of one departments. We do not by-pass the Prime Minister who is always available for consultation and guidance. After hearing Shri Rahul Gandhi, I think India has made the right choice between the Prime Minister who leads the Government and a Prime Minister who is merely implementing decisions taken elsewhere.

Shri Rahul Gandhi’s views are shaped by the environment of a political party which has evolved into a ‘crowd around a family’. The UPA model of governance was that if a person outside the family is the Prime Minister, he should be reduced to being a figure-head. Given a choice between a ‘hands-on’ Prime Minister or a ‘nominal’ head, I would unhesitatingly choose the former.

          Arun Jaitely is a rejected candidate by people but still is the FM becuase of the back door which allows him to be the FM and on top of his back door entry he is having guts to say things for people who enter the Parliament elected by the people from the front door. Shame on him this silly thing he doesnt understand that we need to respect people who make front door entry and proudly elected by the people and the back door entry should sit quitely in parkiament like a guilty. So he should keep quite like Man Mohan Singh who was shy and guilty and was not saying anything to anyone nor talking in the parliament as he was guilty because he was never elected by the prople and still occupy a chair. So jaitely should learn from MMS to remain quite as he is rejected by the people of Amritsar in Punjab.
