Of the Wikileaks cable alleging  that Congress bought votes for the nuclear deal, Manmohan Singh says:

Certainly, I am not involved in any such things. I have not authorised anyone to purchase any votes. I am not aware of any purchase of votes.

It just sounds like selective parsing of the truth. Like when Bill Clinton famously said, “I have never had sexual relations with Monica Lewinsky.” because he thought ‘having sexual relations’ only included giving oral sex, not receiving it.

(And how long before we can stop using alleging; the cash-for-votes scandal is quite obvious.)


I managed to include Manmohan Singh and oral sex in a post. Please applaud while I take a bow.
