8 October 2010: There are two types of battles underway between the Congress party and the Manmohan Singh government. Both battles, one institutional in character and the other individual, are undermining the Centre and by a natural correlation the country and specifically its national interests. It is unfair and difficult to say that one side or one set of individuals are always right and the other wrong. But the Congress party's growing differences with the government will run the country aground sooner than later and recovery will be impossible at least in the present term of office of prime minister Manmohan Singh.
