The reasons advanced so far by Minister Anil Roberts on why he should not resign is justification for his firing on its own.
If he is to stay in the Cabinet of this country, one will have to conclude his defence is sound. That will set a precedent that ministers don’t have to account for programmes under their portfolios. Just set the policy and turn your back.
What a disaster awaiting this country if that is to become the norm. Madame Prime Minister, fire Anil, please.
