MIM win in Maharashtra to trouble Kerala parties

Wednesday, 22 Oct 2014 | Govindan Kutty | Thrissur

This refers to the victory of the Majli-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen in a couple of Assembly seats in Maharashtra. This is indeed troublesome news for the Indian Union Muslim League and the Congress-led United Democratic Front in Kerala. If the MIM enters into the electoral fray in Kerala and if it can…

Wave intact

Wednesday, 22 Oct 2014 | KS Jayatheertha | Bangalore

Sir — Like other sceptics, I too believed that the ‘Modi magic’ was over after the Bharatiya Janata Party’s poor show in the recent by-elections. But then, the Narendra Modi-Amit Shah duo successfully rampaged across Haryana and Maharashtra and proved me wrong. After having crafted a spectacular win in the…

Ending logjam

Wednesday, 22 Oct 2014 | SC Agrawal | Delhi

Sir — People in Maharashtra, even though having given a fractured verdict in a four-cornered contest, have definitely desired the formation of a BJP Government in the State. The BJP as an opposition party was highly vocal, and rightly too, against the alleged corruption of Nationalist Congress Party leaders. It…

Congress marginalised

Wednesday, 22 Oct 2014 | MC Joshi | Lucknow

Sir — This refers to the editorial, “BJP’s emphatic victory” (October 20). The Maharashtra and Haryana election results are a further blow to the Congress, which was already down due to its worst ever performance in the Lok Sabha election. It is the people’s stamp of approval on the Narendra…

Modi charisma and BJP’s clout evident in results

Tuesday, 21 Oct 2014 | Bal Govind | Noida

This refers to the editorial, “BJP's emphatic victory” (October 20). By scoring an outright win in Haryana, a State where the BJP did not have a major presence, and coming near the half-way mark in Maharashtra, which saw a four-cornered contest, the BJP has demonstrated its clout and Prime Minister…

Handsome victory

Tuesday, 21 Oct 2014 | Ganapathi Bhat | Akola

Sir — This refers to the editorial, “BJP’s emphatic victory” (October 20). The Maharashtra and Haryana election results have gone almost the way many exit polls had predicted. Sceptics who had wondered whether the ‘Modi magic’ had waned, must have been disappointed by the way the party has conquered Haryana…

Disgusting behaviour

Tuesday, 21 Oct 2014 | TT Sakaria | Delhi

Sir — This refers to reports that former Tamil Nadu Chief J Jayalalithaa has extended financial aid to kin of 193 suicide victims. The suicides came in the wake of Jayalalithaa’s conviction and incarceration in a Bangalore jail. The developments in the State are shocking and unbelievable. It seems Tamil…

Callous, irresponsible

Tuesday, 21 Oct 2014 | Nimai Charan Swain | Bhubaneswar

Sir — This refers to the editorial, “Road for national good” (October 17). China’s objection to the proposed road linking Tawang to Vijaynagar which is in the Indian territory, is preposterous. India should have constructed the road when China began infrastructure development in proximity or contiguous the McMahon Line. India…

Getting tough with China is only way out of crisis

Monday, 20 Oct 2014 | Mahesh Kumar | New Delhi

China has objected to India's plan to build a road in Arunachal Pradesh. China's map shows parts of Arunachal Pradesh and Jammu & Kashmir as its territory. Whatever border disputes exist between India and China must be settled at the earliest. The Union Government has done the right thing by…

Heartening start

Monday, 20 Oct 2014 | Premolal | Via web

Sir — This refers to the editorial, “Step ahead in reforms” (October 18). Many States, ruled by the Bharatiya Janata Party, have been progressive. If one looks carefully, these States have recorded high growth rates because they have efficient and stable regimes. Global investors have been attracted to these States…

The possibility of terror attacks during the festive season cannot be ruled out. We cannot ignore terror activities. Hence, alerts are issued.

I sometimes enjoy superhero films because they go well with popcorn. Problem is, sometimes they purport to be profound.

Hollywood director | Alejandro Gonzalez

I would disagree with the notion that there's some split between the US and Turkey on fighting the IS. The overarching goals are the same.
