Country pays the price? Really, now. Is that so. A sitting minister wishing or vaguely making dire remarks about a country, that he also tries to govern, needing to pay the price. That is pathetic. Despicable. Deplorable. And I am surprised that no one in the ruling party or the opposition has picked those words and really questioned him on the choice of words.
Its simple, Chidambaram - you either try to do your best to govern the nation... against all odds, and dont wish for danger to befall the nation; Else, move on. The country will be better off without you.
No one is indispensable. Even you.
