Rajkot: Janta Party chief Subramanian
Swamy on Saturday described Prime Minister Manmohan Singh as an
honest man and said that he should not be removed.

"The Prime Minister is an honest man but he is not
able to take independent decisions because he has a high
command over him," he told reporters when asked for his
reaction to the charge of BJP leaders of prime minister being
weak.

"I`m not in favour of demanding his (Manmohan Singh)
removal," Swamy said, adding that he is a good prime minister
in the present circumstances.

Swamy reacted sharply to the apology offered by
BJP leader L K Advani to Congress president Sonia Gandhi over
the issue of Swiss Bank accounts saying that he should not
have apologised to her.

Replying to a question, he said it is not tough
to bring the black money back from abroad but the government
should have the will and the determination for it.

Swamy also took a dig at film stars who wants to join
politics, saying "film stars have no knowledge about politics
and they should stay in film industry only".
