September 30: All key infra ministers enjoyed PM's full backing in the NDA regime, Senior BJP Leader Arun Shourie says, adding that civil servants do not have faith in ministers today. NDA's ministers had competence in their sectors, but now roads projects are treated like ATMs, he says. “One simply cannot burden exchequer with power subsidies; the user must pay the cost incurred for supplying power,” he says, adding that the government must be truthful about what it can't afford.
