Kejriwal's strategy is to expose the corrupt, not win elections
This refers to Indrajit Hazra's article Miss the lokpal? (October 22). Arvind Kejriwal's success can be gauged from the way politicians and parties are reacting to his exposes. They are questioning his motives and
actions out of desperation. Kejriwal doesn't seem to be interested in winning elections. His strategy is to expose the various misdeeds of our politicians. There is no doubt that he is doing a very good job. Kejriwal has instilled a sense of fear among politicians and businessmen. This will go a long way towards curbing corruption.

Hazra is right that the passage of the Lokpal Bill in Parliament last year would have allowed India to focus on other issues of national importance. But it's not too late even now. Both the government and the Opposition must come together on the issue of the lokpal and pass the bill in the next session of Parliament.

KFA must get back on course
This reference to the editorial Kingfisher in limbo (Our Take, October 22). Vijay Mallya is citing the global economic slowdown for his inability to sustain Kingfisher Airline (KFA). But the truth is that Mallya and his son Siddharth's profligate ways are the real reason for the mess. This is appalling, as 6,000 Kingfisher employees have lost their jobs. Kingfisher should learn some lessons from international airlines that have circumvented the downturn. Mallya must divert funds from his other companies and pay salaries to KFA's employees.
