Apropos of the report Nandigram land secure: Buddha (December 27), West Bengal CM Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee slept when innocent people were being killed. And now when hundreds of families have lost their dear ones, he is regretting and realising that his vote-bank is in danger.
A mauling experience
The report How safe are the malls? (December 25) shows that malls in the NCR need high security. Even to watch a movie in the attached multiplex, one has to go through a bad experience of manual frisking. Mall authorities should use hand-held equipment for this to make visitors feel comfortable and improve their safety.
Health on hold
I appreciate Sanchita Sharma’s Capital malady (December 26) for presenting the health scenario in the capital. There are serious health problems that appear at all ages due to air pollution and contamination of drinking water. The government should address these while designing various projects for the coming Commonwealth Games.
Modi shows the way
The editorial Show us, Mr Modi and Rajdeep Sardesai’s article The new Advani? (December 26) are disappointing. While the people across the country in general, and of Gujarat in particular, have matured, Sardesai is stuck in the quagmire of his mindset. By their overwhelming mandate in re-electing Narendra Modi, people have shunned your counselling.
Kedarnath R Aiyar
Narendra Modi may or may not re-invent himself, but other politicians need to understand that the common man is sick of corruption and misrule. If they can ensure the rule of law, as Modi has done in Gujarat, the common man may overlook many of their faults.
Narendra Modi’s five years of development work in Gujarat and his honest and impartial leadership got the people’s nod. Politicians must desist from indulging in communal politics under the garb of secularism.
