UPA advised for mid-course correction on its third year eve

The Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA), which will complete its three-year reign at the Centre on May 22, has been advised to take mid-course correction not from its allies and supporting parties but also from a minister in the Cabinet.

New Delhi, May 20 : The Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA), which will complete its three-year reign at the Centre on May 22, has been advised to take 'mid-course' correction not from its allies and supporting parties but also from a minister in the Cabinet.

With the Congress already losing power in Punjab and Uttarakhand and the just concluded assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh failing to give the grand old party any consolation, Cabinet Minister for Panchayat Raj, Mani Shankar Aiyar, has said that the government should go for a review of its work as only two years are left for the next general election when people would judge UPA's term.

"There is time enough to take certain special measures. The alarm bells should be rung. They absolutely should be rung, whether they're ringing or not," Aiyar said in an interview to CNN-IBN.

"I fear that a government that is attempting to have an economic policy for the aam admi (common people) may not get the aam admi's endorsement," he added.

Aiyar, who claimed that his 'concerns' are resonating in the cabinet, said that he had placed his view to Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh, who has sympathetically assured him to look into it.

On being asked whether that Dr. Singh also believes that the time has come for mid-course review, Aiyar said, "Oh, absolutely!"

According to the minister the 'impressive' plus nine per cent growth rate of the economy has failed to narrow down the gap between the rich and the poor of the country.

"There is a disproportionate benefit of the 9.2 per cent (growth) going to the classes," he said, adding," "The masses determine who will form the Government (but) the classes determine what that Government will do."

Some section in the Left parties like CPI has already demanded for the review of the support to the UPA government after the end of the Presidential polls slated later this year.

Left, which has already expressed its disappointment over the economic policies of the government, also has called for immediate review of some of its major policies.

The Government is not keen to celebrate its three-year rule and Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh is expected to host a dinner for its allies and its members.
