By Manuwant Choudhary

Singh is no king, Som is king, by Som I mean our grand old Speaker Somnath Chatterjee just expelled from his party the CPI (M) for upholding the Indian constitution and not upholding the Communist party constitution.

For the entire country watching the spectacle on Live TV, the past fortnight has been a shame.

But in all this one man who stood above the rest and performed his duties towards his country and constitution, it was Somnath Chatterjee.

Mr. Chatterjee proved his point that there are some things which are above even party interests.

On the other hand I wonder whether our Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh can sleep at night after all the cash placed on the table of parliament.

If you ask me Dr. Singh should have resigned after winning the trust vote or even before and he would have truly gone down in Indian history as a great man.

But Dr. Singh is a mere `Congressman'.

He wants to stay in power (not nuclear) at any cost.

Surely, Amar Singh cannot be a greater ally to the Congress than the Left or he can be worse?

Indiavikalp exposed the PMs politics last May and in October and Indiavikalp said that its the Communists and Harkishen Singh Surjeet in particular who made Dr. Singh PM, and not the Congress Party or Sonia Gandhi.

So on the floor of the parliament when the PM thanked the Communists for being the architects to this alliance, it came as no surprise.

As for the opposition parties, they are also on the offensive even attacking their own MPs who voted against, and even expelling them.

The allurement offered by the Samajwadi Party and the Congress Party must be condemned but also the opposition must soul search why their honourable MPs are purchasable so easily.

As for Jharkhand, both the NDA and Congress offered the State as a bribe to Jharkhand Mukti Morcha Shibu Soren!

Whatever, our TV editors may say, we have no government till the next elections.

As for nuclear power for electricty, I thought Enron was supposed to solve that long ago.
