This really ought to deter Corruption

From Rediff.com:

Natwar Singh has been stripped of the external affairs ministry and made a minister without a portfolio in the United Progressive Alliance government headed by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. The decision followed Natwar Singh's hour-and-a-half-long meeting with Dr Singh. Finance Minister P Chidamabaram was also present at the meeting.

Wow, this one decision will act as a deterrent to corrupt officials all over India. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and the real head of Government UPA Chair Sonia Gandhi have sent a clear message to prospective wrong-doers: If you commit a crime, we will do our best to ignore it. If provided with firm evidence that you committed the crime, we'll wait for a week or two to make sure there's no way to get out of punishing you. And if that strategy doesn't work, we'll put you in a job that has the same pay scale, the same status, and no responsibilty.

Yeah, good job. Now no one will even think of taking kickbacks.
