What next, Mr Prime Minister?

Railway minister Pawan Bansal and law minister Ashwani Kumar resigned as the Congress-led UPA government moved to limit the damage from corruption scandals with less than a year until general elections. Since 2009, when the UPA assumed power for the second term, the Manmohan Singh government has faced a series of corruption charges and also been criticised for failing to check a slowdown in India's economic growth, now at a decade-low of around 5%. Has the government been able to effectively control rising prices and the level of corruption in the country? The simple answer is a resounding no with a capital N. How has India's father of economic reform fallen so far from grace? What should he do to retrieve his legacy? Share your views!
