Communism’s iconic leaders were no less tyrannical than Adolf Hitler
Bravo to Sitaram Yechury for comparing Narendra Modi to Adolf Hitler in Cabbages and kings (Left Hand Drive, April 16) forgetting the unprecedented horror his party’s three-decade rule unleashed in West Bengal.
He should remember that the human rights records of Stalin and Mao Zedong, whom Yechury is related to by political DNA, were no better in comparison to Hitler. Yechury is right in stating that history has its own ways of conveying messages through historical coincidences. But it‘s a fact that some people never learn from history and his partymen fall in to that category.

Nitish may push the BJP along
With reference to the editorial A bumpy road ahead for NDA (Our Take, April 16), Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar’s call for the BJP to decide on Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi’s prime ministerial candidature might provide a positive impetus to the BJP leadership that has been dilly-dallying on the issue.
Even Rajnath Singh has not been able to take a call on this issue after becoming party president. The JD(U) leader’s deadline might prompt the party leadership to take a decision sooner and that too with greater conviction.

Take it one month at a time
Shivani Singh in Parents can’t take on pvt schools, govts must step in (April 15) rightly highlights how schools are making money by raising fees drastically. It is happening not only in Delhi but in all cities and towns. Parents have no option but to give in to the schools’ demand. Moreover, paying fees in a lump sum every quarter puts a lot of financial pressure on parents. It is good that schools in Delhi have been asked to rollback the fee hike and charge only a month’s fee at a time.
