LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

BJP must review some of its recent decisions

Tuesday, 01 Sep 2015 | SG | Via web

This refers to the article, “On Netaji file, official response big let-down” (August 29) by Ashok Malik. The Bharatiya Janata Party seems to be shooting its foot every day. Soon enough, it will get a strong opposition to bring it down. Fifteen months is enough period to begin setting things…

Handle basics

Tuesday, 01 Sep 2015 | Bal Govind | Via email

Sir — This refers to the editorial, “Plight of state-run schools” (August 31). The intent of the Allahabad High Court was right when it said that Government servants must send their wards to Government-run schools. But considering the pathetic state of affairs at these schools, I am not sure whether…

Credibility crisis

Tuesday, 01 Sep 2015 | H Balakrishnan | Via web

Sir — This refers to the article, “On Netaji, official response big let-down” (August 29) by Ashok Malik. The BJP had promised us an ‘open, transparent and systems-based Government’. Is the refusal to declassify the Netaji files part of this promise? The same is the case with the Henderson…

Biased debates

Tuesday, 01 Sep 2015 | Venkataraman Jagadesan | Via web

Sir — This refers to Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar’s comment that the electronic media ignored the 1965 war event since it was busy covering a murder mystery. English channels will screen worthless discussions which are biased and involve shouting matches without any meaningful talk. They will not bother to cover…

Silver lining

Tuesday, 01 Sep 2015 | Aaraam | Via web

Sir — This refers to Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar’s comment that the electronic media ignored the 1965 event as it was busy covering a murder mystery. Even if the Minister takes a dig at the news channels, it won’t make a difference. The ‘we broke it first’ cries, which reverberate…

Smart implementation

Tuesday, 01 Sep 2015 | Abhijit Roy | Via email

Sir — Finally, the ‘smart city’ list is out. Usually, long-drawn, ambitious plans tend to suffer from improper planning, insufficient funds and ineffective execution. The ‘smart city’ project could go the same way if the implementation is not proper. Portable roads, potable water, non-fluctuating electricity, decent dwellings, schools — they…

Welcome move to have road after APJ Kalam

Monday, 31 Aug 2015 | SC Agrawal | Delhi

This refers to the welcome decision by New Delhi Municipal Council, having representation of ruling parties from both the Union and Delhi Governments, to rename Aurangzeb Road after former President APJ Abdul Kalam. The opposition to the change by some fundamentalist elements exposes their real intention. It is shocking that…

Soft nation?

Monday, 31 Aug 2015 | JL Ganjoo | Delhi

Sir — Continued ceasefire violations and the killing of both civilian and military personnel by Pakistan is a matter of concern. It is no consolation that Pakistan stands diplomatically isolated. Unless India responds forcefully across the borders and into terror camps, a country wedded to the ideology of hate and…

Re-visit reservations

Monday, 31 Aug 2015 | Shreyans Jain | Delhi

Sir — This refers to the editorial, “Unreasonable demand” (August 28). The unprecedented mobilisation of the youth belonging to the Patel community is a manifestation of a long suppressed discontent against the governance model adopted in India by previous Governments, which had neither been inclusive nor accommodative. The demand that the…

Quota mess

Monday, 31 Aug 2015 | Sagar Singh | New Delhi

Sir — This refers to the editorial, “Unreasonable demand” (August 28). It is unfortunate that the pro-reservation rally of the Patels turned violent in Ahmedabad, leading to police firing and the death of seven people, including a policeman. Hardik Patel, the organiser of the rally, has come from nowhere and…
