Once again, Pranab proved he's an awful politician
NEW DELHI, Jun 16 (Agencies): I remember once sitting in a room as Pranab Mukherjee, then a Cabinet minister in the United Progressive Alliance, explained his government's plan to conduct a socio-economic caste census.

At the end of the discussion, I was left with three conclusions: First, Mukherjee was somethi...
