Re: Enron India Problem

Please help make the Manifesto better, or accept it, and propagate it!
Let us be clear about who are the people involved
in the Enron contract.......

1. Then top level bureaucrats in MSEB

2. Then CM / Ministers in Govt of Maharastra.

3. Then top level bureaucrats in related Ministries
   at Govt of India like Power, Finance etc.

4. Then PM / Ministers in Govt of India who gave
   the counter guarantee.

The people involved have proved conclusively that they
do not know *simple arithmetics*, and they do not make
decisions with any kind of *forward thinking/vision*

I am surprised there is not even an enquiry.....
