Sonia Gandhi
New Delhi, Jul 9: Days after Time Magazine's cover story on Manmohan Singh, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) hurled some allegations against Sonia Gandhi and UPA government.

Calling Manmohan Singh government "the most corrupt", BJP spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad blamed Mrs Gandhi and also accused her of bringing all difficulties to India.

"Sonia Gandhi cannot escape the blame as India is suffering because of her misrule," chided Ravi Shankar Prasad while reacting on the latest issue of Time Magazine which has published on Saturday, Jul 7.

The magazine called Manmohan Singh an "underachiever" and a "man in shadow". Criticising the Prime Minister and the government led by him, the magazine claimed, "India needs a reboot. Is Prime Minister Manmohan Singh up to the job?"

UPA government also has been slapped. The magazine hurled strong criticism against it saying, "The laws that could help create growth and jobs are stuck in parliament, sparking concerns that politicians have lost the plot in their focus on short-term populist measures that will win votes."

Calling Dr Singh 'a man in shadow', Time Magazine, however, gives some advice to the Indian Prime Minister. "India is stalling. To turn it around, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh must emerge from his private and political gloom," said the magazine.

However, Union Home Minister P Chidambaram strongly criticised BJP's reaction to the report published in the magazine.

Slamming BJP, Chidambaram on Monday, Jul 9 said, "It is just a magazine... The BJP's comments (on the PM and the government) are distasteful."
