Digvijaya Singh’s old policies have no place in new India

With reference to Rajdeep Sardesai’s article Exile in main street (Beyond the Bite, July 1), Digvijaya Singh, like the Congress president, holds a powerful position but is not accountable to anyone or so it seems from his irresponsible statements which the party neither accepts nor rejects.

With reference to Rajdeep Sardesai’s article Exile in main street (Beyond the Bite, July 1), Digvijaya Singh, like the Congress president, holds a powerful position but is not accountable to anyone or so it seems from his irresponsible statements which the party neither accepts nor rejects. But he should get one thing clear: playing the minority card won’t help the Congress win anymore. The only way to win people’s confidence is by addressing social problems like corruption, inflation, water scarcity and unemployment.

Sardesai deftly analyses Singh’s personality and ambitions. The truth is that Singh is a pseudo-sanyasi and his secularism is a strategy to win over innocent rural voters. Singh aspires to become the next PM by chaperoning Rahul Gandhi. However, when the times comes, he will realise that when it comes to power, the Gandhi family likes to keep it all in the family.

In UP, it’s all about Maya

The Supreme Court’s intervention in the Uttar Pradesh land acquisition case is good news for small farmers whose lands are their only livelihood (States in sinister campaign to grab farmers’ land, says SC, July 6). UP chief minister Mayawati is giving away agricultural land to private builders in the guise of development and making money for her party. The state is in a bad shape as far as development and law and order are concerned. We hope Mayawati realises her mistake after losing the 2012 assembly elections.
