Manmohan Singh spoke, and Twitter can’t stop talking about it

Former Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh, who was renowned to keep mum and speak only when the Congress high command allowed him to, spoke for quite some time (by his standards) in the Parliament today. And this rare incidence made Twitter take note and come up with some running commentary.

Dr. Singh was speaking on demonetisation, and he termed it an organised loot and legalised plunder. Well, terms like “loot” and “plunder” did make people recall his UPA government:

Though there was some confusion about what exactly was this “loot”:

He further said that the implementation of demonetisation was monumental management failure. While some criticism of implementation is entirely valid, it did leave people wondering what would have Manmohan Singh done:

He also repeated Keynes’ quote of “In the long run, we are all dead.”, well is that the secret of UPA governance:

Some journalists were so moved and impressed that the leftist blog Scroll declared that now historians will treat Manmohan Singh kindly – a wish he had expressed while in the last days of his office. And obviously that wish will be fulfilled:

However, some “trolls” were still not impressed with Manmohan Singh’s economics:

All in all, while some journalists were all starry-eyed and wished for return of Congress, almost everyone was surprised at this turnaround in Manmohan Singh’s character. He had found a voice:

This magical turnaround of Dr. Singh’s personality was listed as successful outcomes of demonetisation:

While wondering about this turnaround, some wished he had brought this change in his character earlier:

And well, who knows this might have happened. Old habits die hard:

Or maybe this might have happened. Old habits again:

There were many more tweets, but well, we should stop now, because:

Nonetheless, well done Dr. Manmohan Singh!
