Dr Manmohan Singh appears on the cover of this week's issue of Time, and in the accompanying article, the magazine has raised questions about his ability to act in the face of slowing growth, policy inaction and unpopularity of economic reforms.
"India needs a reboot. Is Prime Minister Manmohan Singh up to the job?," asked Time.
The magazine flays Dr Singh for having "squandered" the last three years, his lack of confidence, inability to rein in his ministers and "unwilling" to carry out reforms that would continue the process of liberalisation he helped start in 1991.

The magazine says retaining the finance portfolio following the exit of Pranab Mukherjee gives an opportunity for Dr Singh to turn the economy around, though it is not sure if he could manage that.
