Click to Enlarge

Time Magazine in its Asia edition has labeled Manmohan Singh as  ‘The Underachiever’. Time is an American weekly magazine. In its latest edition dated 16th July, Magazine has carried a cover story where a photograph of Manmohan Singh has “India needs a reboot. Is Prime Minister Manmohan Singh up to the job”, as the subtext to the much humiliating label of ‘The Underachiever’. Title of the inside story is ‘A Man in Shadow’ which goes on to point out whatever is wrong with the Indian economy, a slowdown in economic growth, huge fiscal deficit and a falling rupee.

The ‘Man in Shadow’ remark refers to Manmohan Singh being appointed as PM by Sonia Gandhi despite never having won an election.

    how is this an opinion..? this is stating plain simple fact about what TIME published.
    Is The Forthright now advertising other news titles without any opinion of its own ?

      No Amit.It is not an advertisement. The Forthright is strictly an impartial source of news and opinions and this is news.
