Manmohan Singh defends his actions as PM



New Delhi: Defending his actions, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Wednesday said if seven out of ten decisions taken by him turned out to be right, it would be considered a job well done by corporate standards.

"I think you have to take a decision at that time. Of all the decisions that I take if seven out of ten turn out to be correct, the share-holders of a normal corporation will say a job well done," Singh said in reply to a question on whether he regretted not going for auction in the 2G spectrum allocation.

The Prime Minister was speaking at an interaction with editors here.

Further defending his decisions in the recent past, he said we are living in a world of uncertainty where there is a gap between our expectations and the reality that emerges subsequently.

Later, reacting to the Prime Minister's remarks, BJP President Nitin Gadkari said Singh had fared badly as PM and if the passing marks in an examination are 33 per cent, he deserved less than that.
