Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, who as India's finance minister in 1991, ushered in reforms that liberalized the economy has been at the receiving end of much criticism and widely termed as a “puppet”.

Global credit rating agency Standard and Poor’s (S&P) described India as possibly the first “fallen angel” among the BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) countries saying that the prime minister has weakened the framework for making economic policy.

Meanwhile, the Washington Post, called the prime minister “a dithering, ineffectual bureaucrat presiding over a deeply corrupt government” and the Time Magazine called him an "underachiever" and a "man in shadow".

The prime minister, however, managed to silence critics that called him a silent poodle by ushering in an array of blockbuster reforms, opening up the economy to foreign investment. Whether these steps will help revive the economy remains to be seen.
