Leadership crisis will ruin the Congress

Tuesday, 25 Oct 2016 | Sapna Singh | Delhi

This refers to the editorial, “Rahul Gandhi’s failures” (October 22).

However, it will certainly benefit the BJP which is already in an upbeat mode,...

Dividing people

Tuesday, 25 Oct 2016 | Abhi | Via web

Sir — This refers to the article, “Confronting an isolationist mindset” (October 24) by Ravi Sharma. The lack of a uniform civil code has created a ‘nation-within-a-nation’ syndrome in the country. The sooner India gets rid of it, the better it will be.

False propaganda

Sir — This refers to the article, “No-skin-in-the-game nationalism in obverse” (October 22) by Ashok Malik.

Fight terrorism

Tuesday, 25 Oct 2016 | KV Seetharamaiah | Hassan

Sir — It’s good that the US has told Pakistan in no uncertain terms that it will not hesitate to act alone to destroy terror groups. Terrorism has been spreading its tentacles all over the world. That Pakistan is also a victim of terrorism, cannot silence the voice of the...

Failed strategy

Monday, 24 Oct 2016 | KS Jayatheertha | Hyderabad

Sir — This refers to the editorial, “Rahul Gandhi’s failures” (October 22). Perhaps the strategy, purportedly laid by election strategist Prashant Kishor, has led to the first major casualty. In her exit, Rita Bahuguna Joshi exposed the fragile underbelly of the Congress in India’s most populous State. A cursory look at...

Introspection time

Monday, 24 Oct 2016 | Tharcius S Fernando | Chennai

Sir — This refers to the editorial, “Rahul Gandhi’s failures” (October 22). Of late, many senior leaders from the Congress have quit the party and joined the BJP.

Needless controversy

Monday, 24 Oct 2016 | Bal Govind | Noida

Sir — This refers to the article, “No-skin-in-the-game nationalism in obverse” (October 22) by Ashok Malik. I don’t think the Government ever said that it will put a blanket ban on Pakistani artistes. In fact, it was the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena which said that it would not allow Karan Johar’s...

Political dilemma

Sir — This refers to the article, “Back to religious passion to gain votes” (October 21) by Kalyani Shankar. I concur with the author’s views that the multi-crore futuristic Ramayan museum project for Ayodhya, announced by the Centre, has come across as an ace political card that has ruffled ...
