Opposition National Democratic Alliance on Wednesday lashed out at the Manmohan Singh government for the recent political happenings in Goa, Jharkhand and Bihar.
It also raised questions about the role of governors and the way issues concerning country's security were being handled.
The manner in which various issues are being handled is extremely worrisome and a matter of grave concern, Leader of the Opposition and senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader Jaswant Singh said in the Rajya Sabha.
He was initiating a discussion on the motion of thanks to the President's address.
"There are several centres of power. It is really disturbing. We have a prime minister who has great competence withoutauthority. We have authority but there is no competence," Singh said.
Thepolitical developments in Jharkhand, Goa and Bihar indicated there is a 'great erosion' of institutions, he said.
"Ifinstitutions are rendered inoperative or weak, we are guilty of very substantial and substantive wrong. It is saddening."
