LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
This refers to the editorial, “Disregard for the truth” (April 27). The truth has finally prevailed. The high and the mighty of the Congress are now in a soup, following the Milan court’s judgement. All along, the UPA Government tried its best to put the lid on the AgustaWestland case...
Sir — This refers to the editorial, “Natural heritage ablaze” (April 28). The massive fire at the National Museum of Natural History has brought to fore the incompetence of the fire safety apparatus in our country. This tragedy also shows the difficult conditions in which the fire men work. Many workers...
Sir — This refers to the editorial, “Natural heritage ablaze” (April 28). The destruction of an entire collection of specimens of flora and fauna, housed in the National Museum of Natural History was an irreparable loss for the country. We were overwhelmed with feelings of sadness to see the footage...
Sir — This refers to the report, “JNU rusticates 3 students” (April 26). The rustication of Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya, students of the Jawaharlal Nehru University, shows that the students broke disciplinary norms and their demonstrations cannot be wrapped up in the garb of freedom of speech. Students of...
Sir — This refers to the editorial, “The pendency problem” (April 26). There can be no doubt that the judiciary is overworked because of shortage of judges. The Union Government must find ways and means to resolve this issue. Similar is the case in many other departments where officers have...
Sir — It is surprising to learn that the Indian Olympic Association has appointed Bollywood actor Salman Khan as India’s goodwill ambassador for its athlete contingent for Rio 2016. The actor has proved his mettle in Bollywood but not in sports. India has produced many sportspersons who deserve the golden...
This refers to the article, “Cracks in impregnable TMC fort” (April 27) by Manash Ghosh. If the Trinamool Congress is expecting a landslide victory in West Bengal, then it is living in a fools paradise. Rightly the author has pointed out that the Kolkata flyover tragedy, the Narada sting operation...
This refers to the editorial, “Disregard for the truth” (April 27). The Italian court’s judgement in the AgustaWestland controversy has made it amply clear that the firm lobbied with Congress president Sonia Gandhi and her close associates. Meanwhile, the Congress, now in the Opposition, is running short of issues to...
This refers to the editorial, “The pendency problem” (April 26). Chief Justice of India TS Thakur was well prepared with his statistics and was able to conclusively nail successive Union and State Governments for ignoring the needs of the judiciary. Ways can be found to tackle the pendency problem, provided the...
This refers to the editorial, “The pendency problem” (April 26). Chief Justice of India TS Thakur’s suggestion that the services of retired judges be used to clear the heavy back log of cases is welcome. However, the judiciary must also exercise caution to see that the judges selected for...

Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar’s recent visit to China assumes immense significance in light of the long-standing complex relationship and the security dilemma that exists between the two countries. Political interaction at the higher level is always conducive for strategic trust and communication China is India’s largest neighbour and the two countries share a land border of 3,488 km, which is undemarcated and is known as the Line of Actual Control (LAC)...

There is suspense whether Jail minister Balwant Singh Ramoowalia will continue in office after April 30, as he is yet to become member of Legislative Council or Legislative Assembly with time running out fast. Sources at Raj Bhawan told 'The Pioneer' on Thursday that Governor Ram Naik has so far not received any request to nominate Ramoowalia as a member in the Upper House of the UP legislature...
Why is the Prime Minister silent on AgustaWestland scam? First, the BJP spared (Robert) Vadra, now it is protecting the Congress top brass.
I am extremely proud of my rags to riches story, it's fun to be a misfit or an underdog if you acknowledge your gifts and befriend your obstacles.
For the first time I am supporting Salman (Khan) on my belief that what he is doing is right. Instead and alcohol or tobacco, he is promoting sports.
