Support to Hamas will not resolve the Gaza conflict

Thursday, 24 Jul 2014 | PN Saxena | New Delhi

This refers to the editorial, “On the side of the truth” (July 23). I fully endorse the views. There was no need or legal basis for a resolution condemning Israel and censuring Israel as suggested by CPI(M) leader Sitaram Yechury. Both Israel and Palestine have been recognised by India. The Centre's…

Misplaced sympathy

Thursday, 24 Jul 2014 | M Ratan | New Delhi

Sir — This refers to the report, “Govt stands firm; refuses to take sides over Gaza” (July 22). Minister for External Affairs Sushma Swaraj took a wise decision in rejecting the Opposition’s demand in the Rajya Sabha for a resolution condemning Israel. This is an old conflict that began on…

Glorious victory

Thursday, 24 Jul 2014 | Bal Govind | Noida

Sir — This refers to the editorial, “India is lord of the Lord’s” (July 23). A victory at the Mecca of cricket after 28 long years has come as pleasant news for us. There are various heartening aspects of this win. The first is an all-round performance by the team, where…

Clean-up needed

Thursday, 24 Jul 2014 | Shailendra Kaul | Lucknow

Sir — This refers to the report, “Govt puts Manmohan in dock” (July 23). Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and the Congress have been in the dock for long now. Retired Supreme Court justice Markandey Katju belongs to a family of judges with an unimpeachable record and has been described as…

Indian nationality based on unity in diversity

Wednesday, 23 Jul 2014 | Kshipra Pal | Delhi

This refers to the article, “Spectacular success of cultural nationalism” (July 21) by Balbir Punj. While the achievements of Germany are commendable, they do not call for India to ape the variant of Deutschland's cultural nationalism. India's demography, history and circumstances are in contrast to that of Germany. Individuals of…

Nitish's folly

Wednesday, 23 Jul 2014 | Sagar Singh | Via email

Sir — This refers to the editorial, “Betraying people’s trust” (July 21). Prior to the last Lok Sabha election, JD(U) leader Nitish Kumar had snapped ties with the Bharatiya Janata Party to appease the minorities. But his gimmick did not pay and his party suffered. Now again he is to…

Dramatic AAP

Wednesday, 23 Jul 2014 | Venkataraman Jagadesan | Via email

Sir — This refers to reports that the Aam Aadmi Party has asked the Lieutenant Governor to dissolve the Delhi Assembly. It would be better if the AAP dissolves itself as it has failed the people. AAP leaders routinely entertain the public with their funny ideas. They are so power-hungry…

Face election

Wednesday, 23 Jul 2014 | NK Das Gupta | Kolkata

Sir — After its spectacular success in the Lok Sabha election, the BJP appears reluctant to face the people of Delhi for an Assembly election. This is astonishing because the party has a good chance of coming to power on its own strength. It should not succumb to the temptation…

Congress's decline

Wednesday, 23 Jul 2014 | J Akshay | Bangalore

Sir — The Congress’s bad phase, triggered by its worst ever performance in the general election, seems to be far from over. Bickering even about who was the first to flash the divorce document, the National Conference and the Congress have formally parted ways. A crisis is also brewing in Maharashtra…
