With reference to the report Manu was not at Bina’s party (November 2), Ram Jethmalani’s statement that Manu Sharma, the main accused in the Jessica Lall murder case, was not part of the party on the day of her killing is rather surprising. Reputed lawyers should set precedents for others to follow. His comment seems to be an attempt at confusing statements. He, on behalf of all lawyers, should not make a mockery of the judicial system.
The report Police out in force; law and order breaks down (November 2) makes it clear that the Congress and the BJP are colluding with traders to destroy law and order in the city in support of illegal commercial establishments. When the government can remove industrial units from the city and force diesel vehicles to use CNG, where is the problem in stopping illegal constructions?
Delhiites have witnessed the no-holds-barred construction spree over the last four decades. The we-care-a-damn attitude of the trader community was on display over the last three days. Traders have no respect for the law and are passionate about being law-breakers. The government must assist the Supreme Court in pushing through the sealing drive successfully.
The government has ignored residents’ woes on the sealing issue and is acting almost like the traders’ representative. If the government cannot seal the illegal commercial establishments, it should seal the department of town planning and environment.
Support team India
Dilip Vengsarkar’s remark that India does not have world-class cricketers is disheartening. Instead of supporting the team, we are further demotivating them.
