Blame game is universal

Business Standard  |  New Delhi 

Politics gets the better of economics in India, rued a former secretary to the central government after a discussion with his successors. The former bureaucrat, who has served in key infrastructure departments and is now an advisor, pointed out the problems in the sector and areas that needed improvement, during the discussion.

When his presentation was over, the serving officials said that the problems he had pointed out were "legacy issues" - they weren't addressed by the old dispensation so they had snowballed into larger issues. It's not just politicians and technologists who blame their predecessors, it seems.
