PM Manmohan Singh and his Disappointment with Opposition

PM Manmohan Singh has every right to be angry with the Opposition, especially the BJP. The anger is even more justified, when one looks at the Headlines in Pro-BJP Newspapers.

 

Yesterday, PM Manmohan Singh expressed in Rajya Sabha his disappointment with Opposition.

PM Singh said that in no other democracy in the world, members of the principal opposition party walk into the Well of the House and shout, “PM chor hai, PM chor hai”. When the PM was heckled by the Opposition about the missing files from the coal ministry with regard to the coal allotment scam, Manmohan Singh shot back, “I am not the custodian of files in the coal ministry.”

PM Manmohan Singh has every right to be angry with the Opposition, especially the BJP. The anger is even more justified, when the Prime Minister takes into account the Headlines being published in Pro-BJP Newspapers.

Don’t worry, I’m not blaming any Newspaper. It’s simply the case of carelessly placed punctuation marks (commas etc.)

For instance, in Today’s Amar Ujala, the front page headline is,

Indian Parliament

The headline accompanies a cartoon showing PM Manmohan Singh escaping with a load of files on his back.

This reminds me of some examples, wherein the non discretionary use of punctuation marks sabotages the entire meaning of a sentence.

Stop Donot let him Go

 

 

 

Or

Bear eats shoots and leaves.

(Bear is an omnivore. It eats both plants and animals. But it primarily eats plant shoots and leaves.)

and

Bear eats, shoots and leaves.

(Imagine a Bear with a cowboy hat and gun, entering a restaurant. He eats the food, shoots the waiter and exits the restaurant)

Careless use of punctuation marks will make PM more Angry. We can hope so.
