People are just beginning to realise that there are two V.P. Singhs - V.P. Singh I and V.P. Singh II.
V.P. Singh I never wanted to be a prime minister. He did not wanto to hold any public office, he did not want to contest e'elections, to sit in parliament, to be leader of the Jan Morcha or the Janata Dal, to be anything.
V.P. Singh II is prime minister and will do everything he can to remain prime minister.
V.P. Singh I was known for his tendency to resign. At the slightest opportunity, he would resign, or want ro resign. V. P. Singh II never resigns, even when his party members tell him that it is time he resigned so that they can make Devi Lal prime minister.
V.P. Singh I was obsessed with Bofors. All the time he kept asking Rajiv Gandhi to investigate Bofors investigate Bofors. V. P. Singh II does not want to investigate Bofors.
V.P. Singh I could not understand why the government was not solving the problem in Punjab, Kashmir and Assam. V. P. Singh II has no time to solve the problem in Punjab, Kashmir and Assam, because he has also to solve problems he has started in UP, Haryana, Delhi, and several other states in the north.
V.P. Singh I believed in consensus and compromise. V.P. Singh II believes only in himself. Even when he takes a decisin that pluges half the country into a civil war, he takes the decision alone, without consulting his cabinet, forget the parties supporting him from the outside.
V.P. Singh I believed in morality in politics. V.P. Singh II believes in politics.
The advisers of V.P. Singh I were Arun Nehru, Arif Mohammad Khan and V.C. Shukla. Theadvisers of V.P. Singh II are sharad Yadav and Ram Vilas Paswan.
V.P. Singh I was never liked by Chandra Shekar. V.P. Singh II is liked even less by Chandra Shekhar.
V.P. Singh I used to be always willing to talk to anybody. V. P. Singh II is also willing to talk to anybody, except students.
My sympathies are with the people of India. They voted for V.P. Singh I and elected V.P. Singh II.
