    Sankaranarayanan is used to that chair for long and he should be called back to serve Sonia at 10 Janpath if she could continue in that residence.

    This second time governor seems to stay back in this post till his last breath. Also he is unaware what the remote controlled government (UPA) did in 2004. The new government must slap these s soon without any delay.

    In India it is the un-scruples people who brought down the image, decorum decency of the august offices by corruption, nepotism, other activities,, may be due to their loyalty and biased decisions mainly due to importance given to rather than upright and open way of administration. This is mainly due to importance given to extraneous considerations rathe than the qualifications for the post. Jaihind
