Rafale deal good, but more planes needed

Tuesday, 27 Sep 2016 | Bal Govind | Noida

This refers to the editorial, “The Rafale advantage” (September 26). With India and France signing a contract to purchase 36 Rafale fighter jets, the Indian Air Force will not only be able to raise its air power to face present and future challenges, but the jets will also be a...

Catch-22 situation?

Tuesday, 27 Sep 2016 | PN Saxena | Via email

Sir — This refers to the editorial, “Sustain the Baloch thrust” (September 26). Will it be alright to say that Pakistan is in a Catch-22 situation? If Pakistan defends its terrorist onslaught on Kashmir, it will not be able to keep crushing the Baloch people in it’s backyard. On the other...

Sustain momentum

Tuesday, 27 Sep 2016 | SC Panda | BHUBANESWAR

Sir — This refers to the editorial, “Sustain the Baloch thrust” (September 26). It is heartening that the European Parliament has taken note of Pakistani atrocities in Balochistan. Baloch activists too have demanded that Pakistan be declared a terrorist state. The Modi Government must not lose momentum and should ceaselessly fight...

Being prepared

Tuesday, 27 Sep 2016 | Ashok Chaturvedi | Via email

Sir — This refers to the article, “Indian farmers facing a Frankenstein moment?” (September 23) by RK Pachauri. Sooner than later, multinational agri-businesses, motivated solely by self-interest, will call the shots here in India too. India must be prepared. It must focus on empowering its farmers and increasing their productivity. Also,...

India’s responsibility

Tuesday, 27 Sep 2016 | Meghana A | Via email

Sir — On and off, Islamabad unnecessarily indulges in hyperbole when it says that India would become a state sponsor of terror. So, should New Delhi grant political asylum to the well-known Baloch leader, Brahamdagh Bugti? Bugti is presently in Switzerland. Does it mean that Switzerland is a state sponsor of...

Dialogue the only way to end Cauvery water war

Monday, 26 Sep 2016 | Kajal Chatterjee | Kolkata

This refers to the editorial, “Escalating water war” (September 24). Far from having a cordial dialogue to sort out the issue or even honouring the verdict of the Supreme Court, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka are at loggerheads with each other, with violence and mayhem the result. The confrontation over the...

Unhealthy practice

Monday, 26 Sep 2016 | Gaurav Singhal | Rewari

This refers to the editorial, “Escalating water war” (September 24). The Chief Secretary or the entire Cabinet of Karnataka must be taken to task for dishonouring the apex court’s verdict, otherwise Assemblies across the country will think it fit to defy the apex court by passing resolutions It is imperative upon...

Failed attempt

Monday, 26 Sep 2016 | J Akshay | Bangalore

This refers to the editorial, “Sharif’s failed gamble” (September 23). Never mind Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s historical, geographical and diplomatic contradictions. But he is way off the mark about Kashmir. The dominant narrative in the streets of Kashmir is for azadi, which implies that no India, no Pakistan, but...

Shamed globally

Monday, 26 Sep 2016 | MC Joshi | Lucknows

This refers to the editorial, “Sharif’s failed gamble” (September 23). Pakistan’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif raked up Kashmir in his speech, which was a bundle of lies, at the UN General Assembly. He alleged Indian brutalities in Kashmir, but Pakistan itself commits brutalities and human rights violations in Balochistan and...

Pakistan’s duplicity

Monday, 26 Sep 2016 | Azhar A Khan | Rampur

This refers to the article, “No compromise on national security” (September 22) by Hiranmay Karlekar. Ever since the 26/11 perpetration, Pakistan-sponsored terror attacks on Indian soil, infiltration and violation of ceasefire resulting in unprovoked firings along the Line of Control, have desultorily continued, along with India’s peace-making efforts. The Uri terror...

India’s hour of reckoning

25 Sep 2016 | Dr Ashutosh Misra
